I love it. I'd take two, one to install and one to admire. :thumbup:

Looks promising? Is it angled so the Garmin gets to sit parallel to the ground?

Nice. Sell me one?

Is the plastic part just the standard mount with the tabs trimmed off?

I would throw out my Deda Zero 100 Servizio Corse stem and buy a 3T stem just to be able to use that mount. Very nice work!!!

What would be the price range if one would buy one (Version 2)? Shipping within Denmark.

That looks great! The only that would concern me is that the ring seems very thin for a machined part, especially where it meets the middle part. I would be worried about fatigue failure at this point.

Looks great! Want one for a Deda SC Zero 100 stem pretty please!

However, one thing to consider with the machined mount is in a crash, if force was applied to the computer pushing down on the front, that with an AL mount the weak part would I assume become the computer base itself. Where as the original mount the weak part is the mount (and cheaper to replace).

However, its a killer looking bit of kit.
Seriously, make a Deda one and you can count on my ordering one.

That's a point, but I'm having trouble visualising a crash where the computer or mount would take a hit. It seems to me that it would only happen in quite an extreme case when breaking the mount is likely to be the least of your concerns.
