Garmin mounts – how secure?
Hmmm maybe I could stick it in the backpack, would be a faffing turning on and off. I remember getting shaken to pieces last time I was out there and barely being able to hold on, last thing I want is to get to the end of a descent and see an empty space where my 800 was!Posted 4 years agogarySubscriber
I’ve ridden in Nepal, Swiss alps and Alpes Maritimes with mine, not lost it yet.
I have noticed the elastic bands seem to get a bit stretched over time, so would be tempted to put new ones on but otherwise I think its a safer option than one of the out front options. I think the silicon covers may have a loop to get you attach a leash but not sure.Posted 4 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
I’ve never had trouble with mine. but I did replace the elastic bands with small zip ties as when I swapped it from one bike to the other after a few months they seemed to have lost their elasticity.
But you can use an in-front mount reversed to hold the garmin just above the stem if you’re worried. Added bonus if you use the k-edge style ones that mount it low down and put in just to one side of the stem it’s below the level of the stem if you crash and the bike rolls over.Posted 4 years ago
