true but i can see ways it will/can get hit and its gonna put a strain on those bolts. Not sure i like the idea, saying that Oval held on arm rest and extensions the same way

Looks more and more promissing...

Have you thought about this:

I'd take one as well. Only thing for me is making sure the stem mounting isn't compromised by those extenders and the long bolts required. But looks really nice. I used to have the old Campy Ergobrain and liked the positioning. Your design looks good and functional.

What a shame. I think it would be perfect if it was parallel to the ground. Ok, it will be with a 73 degree headtube angle and the 17 degree stem it will, but with the 6 degree stem, which I also think you are using it will point 11 degree upwards.

One thing I have also "hated" about the Garmin Edge 500 and more about the 800 is the glare of the screen. You can nearly use the 800 as a mirror when you sit on you bike. It helps a lot to just tip the Garmin and you will get a much clearer vision of the screen. Ok, you can always buy a anti-glare protection screen for the Garmins but if it would be posible to place the garmin in front of the stem and have it tilted to be parallel to the ground I think you have made the perfect product - for 3T stem uses :lol:

It is probable that in the future I made ​​a -11 degrees maunt for 3T 6 degree stem. I've even thought about the idea.
