This out front mount is the best bang for your buck out there. It's more sturdy and has a more reassuring click than the stem mount that comes with Garmin Edge computers. Just make sure you have a Torx wrench to attach it to your bars!
It's really useful having your Edge where you can read it best - out front of the center of your handlebars. The SRAM mount is more solid than the other choices for a less expensive price. It took about 30 seconds to put on the bike.
This works very well and positions the Garmin much better than on the handlebar. I had problems slippage when hitting bumps. The handlebar surface is smooth so was difficult to tighten the screw enough to prevent the Garmin from tipping down every time I hit a bump. I added some electrical tape between this mount and the handlebar, problem solved. Hence the 4 stars, otherwise great product and great price. Especially compare to the metal ones for about $40
The extended mount is what Garmin should have given you. Finally you can see you speed without taking your attention away from your ride - generally no big deal, but a big help when packed together at the start of an organized ride or in heavy traffic. The SRAM mount is light, simple, and inexpensive. Better than the k-bar or what Garmin finally came out with from what I have seen.
This mount is superior to the mounting system provided with the Garmin 500 and is the most economically priced one out there. It puts your Garmin in a place that is easier to see. Also, it requires less handlebar real estate than the Garmin supplied mount. You will need a Torx 25 to mount it.
I like how this mount positions my Garmin computer out in front of my bars, as opposed to mounting the computer on my stem. I do a lot of climbing and this mount actually saves some stress on my neck and back by not having to bend my neck as far down to look at my computer while riding. The Garmin attaches to this mount very solidly, even better than the stem mount that came wiht my Garmin. I think this is a nice, inexpensive upgrade that makes my riding more comfortable. Easy to adjust and does not feellook cheap at all.
I like this mount quite a bit, but I feel like the Garmin Barfly is of better quality. This one's price just can't be beat, and my road bike that I was putting this on has other SRAM components so I'm happy to keep up the matching.
This is another good product from SRAM. Works well. There is a more positive click in when the Garmin Edge 500 is centered which is much better than the Bar Fly. It's also about 10 mm longer than the Bar Fly, which I like but is strictly a personal preference.
This was the best value of all the Garmin mounts I reviewed. Easy to install and locks the Garmin in a perfect location. The material appears to be of high quality and locks the garmin in with no vibration. Best purchase I made for my new bike.
I bought this for my road bike so I could leave the original (rubber band) mount on my commuter. Works with my Garmin Edge 200 as advertised - nice snug fit with a satisfying click when you twist the computer into the mount. Only ridden about 200 miles with it so far but it has been perfectly stable. Locationorientation is fine for me, I can read the screen in bright sun without issue. I'm very satisfied with the quality despite the fact that this is one of the least expensive out front mounts.
