Hey there, I'm so glad that you opened this thread!
You see, I'm working on my first bigger project right now and it is the Garmin mount. I wanted to show this project in my introduction thread however this thread is already opened so I'll simply reveal the whole thing in here
My grandfather owns a company that produces blow- and injection-moulded products, mainly "road furniture"... So me, being a cyclist, wanted to start my own project that would be in relation to the sport I like so much...
So the initial idea was this handlebar mount for Garmin computers... There are a few companies that offer these mounts though none of the products are great... so I designed my own, keeping in mind the things which were wrong with products that are already on the market (by Sram, Garmin, Barfly, K-edge, etc....)
So, this is a raw model of what I'm up to (one of the first) ... I've been developing it for quite some time, therefore there are some minor changes on the actual current model however I'll keep you updated in the future
And this is picture of the first prototype
Just some facts: It is going to weight sub 15g ( the plastic body is going to weight around thick 10g plus the bolt and nut .. I reckon it's going to be something around 13-ish alltogether )..
It is going to be available in colours, it'll have this nice minimalistic shape, that puts the computer in line with the stem yet it will be robust enough to support the computer firmly.
Please share your thoughts, if there is anything
you would make different about it please tell and say it LOUD, because I'm now in pre-production phase of the project where anything can be changed. I'm planning to put it on market before the end of May, until then I'll keep you updated in my introduction thread
