if you can wait a few weeks, i'm wagering you'll see availability from quarq in may and it appears to be a better mount/doesn't add to the frontal profile.
Nice. I've already committed to one of these, but I'm sure I could sell it and pick up the Quarq one when/if it comes out.

Heh, it looks like the Quarq mount includes a little flange to hide the Garmin logo on the front edge:

$50? :P


I'm excited to see what the lab here can come up with for free. Otherwise I'll wait for the bro deal again and get a barfly for $20.

Figured I would share these from another forum I frequent. 

This is a homemade mount.  If you can believe that. 


Must have a CNC machine in his garage. 

Then there is this.  I saw one of the early versions with a different computer.  This looks quite a bit better.

The prototype is beautiful but I would not want to mount this thing on the clamp bolts. I wonder if any of these deals work with an 800. Somehow I doubt it.

Raceware is working on it...  Looks like they are talking about a week delivery time....  Sounds promising.

The "CNC'd" is beautiful, I would definately dump my FSA one for that.

Yea, it seems like a bad idea to do it that way.  At the least, it's heavier than it needs to be, and I'm leery of anything that changes how the stem bolts together..  it's a pretty part though.

Does Raceware ship to the US?  It would appear not from their site.

What's the problem with the stem bolts, other than weight?
Do you think we're gonna make it? / I don't know unless we try / you could sit here scared to move / or we could take them by surprise

My stem bolts aren't angled like that. Stem bolts are important, so it might not be the best idea to apply such a long screw, through another (moveable) tube, to the correct torque.


It's probably no big deal, but why take a risk when a lighter, non-risky, 1-bolt option is available.

Nailed it.

I torque the titanium bolts on my stem every week before the races. One of them is always loose. I don't like loctite in this application. So, I'd have to buy longer titanium bolts, and longer bolts stretch more and would have to be torqued more often. It's just not a place where I'd want to make any modifications.

really? that shouldn't be the case, no matter what the material. the issue with Ti screws is galling (any time dissimilar materials are used this can be an issue), hence Ti prep. for the Ti fasteners that i use on road and mountain bikes (stem, shifter clamps, disc rotors, derailleur connections, even shock mounting bolts) i never have a problem with them loosening. it would be of great concern to me if one bolt was loose every week. just want you to be safe.

I use teflon anti-seize.
