No you are supposed to buy from designer who has setup http://biikparts.com but it is not operational.
So instead I bought a Supernova Airstream.

Maybe Ay-Up could get the mounts made and sell them.

I have SRAM Garmin mount and Ay-ups, Garmin is off centre by the width of the Ay-up mount and Ay-up mount is down low.
No real issue, but it would be great to have a dedicated mount

With them pointed that far down you must be travelling at 5km/h for them to be of any benefit.


Nah, they had just been knocked out of place. I have them aimed about 10m in front of the bike (for the red set), and slightly higher for the silver ones.

Ideal but cannot buy as far as I can see.


There used to be a direct link to purchase from the Shapeways site. Here you go : http://biikparts.com/?product=garmin-ay ... dge-200500

Brissie designer. Ive had one on my main bike for over a year now - is a good thing. Weighs next to nothing.

**edit didnt see the post above** just email him and see what the go is.

Hi ACB: last time I checked with the seller, he said something about breakage and broke 2 Garmins that's why he ceased selling them until he's comfortable with it.

That's a shame Ive never had a problem with mine - in fact it's much more sturdy than OEM Garmin mounts. What he might be talking about is that I did hear from a couple of mates who got them at the same time as me that the 1/4 turn locking mechanism can be a bit loose (and perhaps someone's Garmin fell out) but Ive never found that even on the roughest roads.

I wouldn't mind one of those integrated ayup/garmin stem mounts if they ever become available again now I've ordered my own set of these lights. Daylight savings having finished has forced my hand.

Just use a modded helmet mount and mount it under your bars...
I've run mine like this for years... No issues with any out the front mount...
