I'm looking for a new Stem. Really like the new Shimano Pro Vibe Di2 stem's aesthetic and -10 degree angle. However it doesn't seem to be compatible with any stem front cap or stem bolts computer mount which is required for my set-up (no clamping space on the bar).
Then i found this picture. However, i can't find the information on K-edge website. Anyone know what mount is this? Any alternative computer mount options for this stem?

F3 FormMount should work. Got them on two of my own bikes, works fine.

No chance of that F3 mount working due to the backwards facing stem bolts.

OP, that set up looks ace, must be a new product from K-Edge, you can see how it mounts at the bottom in another picture. Might have to send 'em an email to see when it'll be available.

Sent an E-mail to K-Edge.
They said this version is exclusive for Team Sky. However they will release a solution for this bar and this stem "very soon".

They allow manufacturers to beta test equipments on pro teams for sometime before they release to general public. The mass produced version can be a bit different from test version though.

I'd rather question that rule to Continental Pro limited tires more than this case. That one is clearly limited to pros even in the name of it.

Yes, I needed to invest in some new longer PB Swiss Tools hex bit for my Stahlwille Torque wrench, but those backward facing stem bolts give it a really clean look.
- I've switched to the Pro Vibe stem from a Ritchey WCS 4-AXIS stem;
- Available in 1.25 steerer-tube-clamp for Canyon and Giant headsets/bikes;
- Available in a -17 degree option (not all brands offer this aggressive angle);
- Excellent price-point and the DI2 integration can be cool;

My complete review can be found here: https://www.remo-knops.com/6953/vibe-st ... -bikegear/

I've sent the K-Edge team also an e-mail and I'm certainly looking forward to their reply. Hopefully confirming that this computer mount will hit general availability soon.

Well here are some news about a K-Edge mount specifically for Pro Vibe components. Maybe not quite what you were looking for though, as it's simply a variation of the regular mount but with a narrower clamp in order to git the Pro Vibe stem and aero handlebar…

That's indeed not the Christiaan Knees setup we've seen at Le Tour 2017. That was way cleaner .... but let's see what news comes out of Eurobike

Disappointing.
In the text: "The insides had to be sculpted to fit the non-round section that curves into the flat section"
so it must match the bar's curve?

That means it only fit a single Stem and Handle-bar combo together?

hope that is false. I really need to use the Pro Vibe Di2 stem with my Enve bar.

Seems unlikely that mount will be released at all now. If they were going to release it, there would be no reason at all for the mount in the BikeRumor article.

Agree :) :(

I ride a lot with my hands near the stem on endurance rides. The business case to bring the Knees' setup to the market might not be strong enough (volumes vs costs). However if it would get out, I would buy it immediately. :)

I've been wondering if they perhaps don't want to release that particulare mount due to the way it clamps into the stem and the possibility of someone not tightening their stem correctly because of it.
