He's on these forums somewhere too, but frequents the ww forums more often.

I have K-Edge mounts and am very happy with them - a bit more pricey, but they are quality items.

Barfly 2.0 for me. I love that it positions your garmin level with the bars and very close to the stem faceplate.

do they have a local retailer? Where did you buy the mount? Looks like this is a very neat solution.

No mate, u just email tilquist and he makes u the mount... They work out about $60aud delivered so they are exxy... But nothing beats them for style, rigidity & function... He is located in Belgium or holland (or somewhere near there!) so post takes a week or 2

ITM Integra Team stem with Garmin mount, but a tad pricier than BarFly or KEdge...

I ended up going with the barfly2.0 it seems to put my 500 in a nice spot, has a really positive click when it is twisted on. I think the tilquist looked better, but it was a fair bit dearer. Me being a tight ass :mrgreen:

I use a K-Edge, but came across this one last night, looks pretty cool & incorporates a GoPro mount.
