Custom Garmin Edge mount

It's been a long time since I last posted a message here. But now I'm ready with a new project, a garmin mount specially designed for the 3T stem.

This is the prototype No.1, it is far from finished, but now I have an idea of ​​how it should look like.

Then there is created a version 2 today, it is more stable and robust constructed than the first model.

Outstanding job!!! :applause: :applause: :applause: :applause: :applause:

I have been using the Barfly and really like it. But your design gets it lower than the stem which I like even better.
the problem? could be the nut behind the handlebars.

Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?

That that is one elegant mounting station (the word bracket is too low brow).
Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Those are really nicely made. Look good, put the display where you can just glance at it and looks a lot firmer and solid than 99% of the other mounts out there. Very well done. Nice weight, too.

They only work for the 3T stem and only for the angle you're using, right?

WOW! That is excellent work. Will you sell these? if so how do I get one.
The purity of the design is what I'm drawn to

This needs to be marketed as "The Enterprise"

Beautiful work. So much so that I am tempted to buy both a 3T stem and a Garmin.
