- Garmin Edge mounts
Where are you mounting it? on a stem, using the supplied mount unless you can get a spacer, even with a angled mini-b plug, can’t see it fitting.
If on a handlebar (with the supplied mount), or using an extender mount, like Garmin Out-Front, SRAM Quickview, K-edge or 3D printed version, the USB port will be unobstructed, so no issues with connecting a cable.Posted 4 years ago
“Where are you mounting it? on a stem, using the supplied mount unless you can get a spacer, even with a angled mini-b plug, can’t see it fitting.“
No, nowhere near, either on the stem or the bar, hence the question – it’ll have to be one of the “out front” type ones. The K-Edge looks the best bet but just wanted to check with someone who’s actually got one before I lob the best part of £40 on it.
“I use the k edge mount, you’d be tight for space but might be able to squeeze the USB cable in. I have to ask why you’d want to though?“
Excellent – could you possibly check for me? It’d be really helpful. And it’s because I need to charge it whilst riding, for 24h+ rides.Posted 4 years ago
If you’ve nothing to fill your days but dream about how beautiful your computer mount should be. Um….
Here, let me:
Solo, that may be
cheapless expensive, but it’s awfulvery practical looking, baring in mind very little of it can be seen while riding 😉 . The K edge may be very much more expensive, but at least it doesn’tmakes the owner look like its been made by a collaborative group consisting of David Blunkett andas wealthy as Stevie Wonder

As per his follow-up post – so you can plug in a piggy-back battery to extend it’s battery life for very long events (as he also mentioned, certain USB cables will allow use of the USB port without turning off the Garmin, the Garmin supplied one doesn’t though). I use a Bar Fly mount myself (yes it’s ugly and over-priced but was all that was available way back when I bought it :p ) and can’t see it allowing USB port use myself although I don’t have a 200 to test withPosted 4 years agospuddleMember
Has anyone used this instead of sticking out front the other way around? find it hard to mount my edge 810 next to my fat hope dh stem with the standard mount and don’t want it sticking out the front, so would it work pointing backwards or would I just keep catching my knee on it?Posted 4 years ago
Ah – I meant the first one that Solo posted
Its a bontrager generic computer mount, cost me £12. I made a small and simple modification and its ace. I think it also has clearance to the USB mini port underneath. What I like about the mount is that it has an articulated unit support which allows me to rotate the computer to be below the profile of the brake levers and stem, while ensuring the display is still facing me. So that if I have to upturn the bike, I won’t accidentally mash the computer screen.Posted 4 years ago
