New "in front" syle garmin mounts from Superstar
anyone seen/got one? Just ordered one for £8.99. Cheaper than all the rest 🙂

IMO the Superstar ones look like they’re trying to look flash, which makes them look cheap. Whereas the Barflys, though admittedly a pretty expensive bit of plastic, are more innocuous so less “cheap” looking… Might just be me… The Superstar ones also look over-engineered compared to Barfly. If they were similarly basic bits of plastic but half the price I’d probably be tempted.Posted 4 years agoShibbolethMember
I’ve got the K-Edge one on my posh road bike, that’s what these are copying. The K-Edge one is just 2-pieces of beautifully machined aluminium – even the mount are is just machined to the perfect thickness to make it springy enough to hold the Garmin securely.
OK, so it’s 4 times the price, but I like nice things. Might get one of these for the race bike – it’s a bit more of a work horse.Posted 4 years agoflangeSubscriber
I’ve got one of those K-edge ones and its MIGHTY tight getting the actual Garmin on. To the point where its buggered the back of my 800 and the 500 seems to be going the same way
I’d prefer a plastic/resin one, the superstar one looks good as its an alloy body with a composite holderPosted 4 years agoTiRedMember
Have K-edge, an Sram and a Raceface luminous one (teenagers).
The K-edge is by far and away the nicest piece of bling. And it matches the pro chain catcher. It’s on the front of the bike, you look at it all the time. Of course it should look good! Like all the best jewellery 😉Posted 4 years ago
stayhigh – i think it has potential too if you turn the lower part of the mount upside down – you lose the side to side stability groove though – and even at that its only a maybe.
ive ordered one to try out as my Commuter needs an outfront due to space issues -its currently on the top tube, lights have priority on the bars.Posted 4 years ago
superstar mount arrived today.
cant see why it wont do whats its told.
i suspect a bit of loctite on the arm mount wont go a miss but the garmin slides in and out of the head nicely and it sits about level with the bars once on. Beats having it on the top tube anyway.Posted 4 years agomoomanMember
My Superstar mount arrived today.
First impression .. very good!
It looks everything as solid as the K-edge. Prob as heavy too.
But the plastic mount looks to eliminate the probs of the K-edge ruining the back of your Garmin.
It’ll go on the winter bike. No more drenching it with sweat when on the rollers now.Posted 4 years ago
