I emailed Morton with measurements, CAAD template has been made and he is scheduled to make a customer mount for me for the SLR bar late December/early January. Once received I will verify everything fits right on the bike and then Morton should be good to produce more.

I thought this would bother me, but its not the end of the world.
Steve, is your bike Di2 and if so, is Morton making a mount that is also capable of holding the Di2 front junction box?
If not, you can mount it like I did on my Wilier.

Yes my Propel is Di2. I currently removed strap and just used strong dbl side tape and mounted junction box to bottom of stem. Definitely open to a more elegant and secure solution.
What mount did you end up going with? It looks solid and is not offset that much to really notice.

It's Morton's mount for the FSA Plasma bar that's on the Giant.
Check post #7, look closely how I mounted the junction box on the Wilier. Although double stick tape will work just fine, I've had good luck shimming the mount a tad and cutting the supplied strap then "sandwiching" it between the bar and mount. If you want better pics, I'll take some.
As far the bike is concerned, I've got chips galore on the the frame from pebbles shot up by my teammates in group rides. Unreal how easily these frames chip!

Hi,

FETHA has just started making GARMIN mounts to suit the GIANT integrated bar and stem.

CNC machined, Anodised in various colours and suit the 500, 510,800 and 810 models.
They have a plastic insert so it does not wear out your Garmin unit.

Send them an email and they will get back to you.

They're no good for the Giant bars unfortunately as they're not offset. As you'll see Tillquist version it's offset to allow for the location of the mounting holes. If only it could be a simple solution!
