Any plans on one for an Extralite Roadstem OC mount? I'm really wanting to purchase one of these stems but the only thing stopping me is the lack of a Tilquist mount for it!

Dear Tillquist, Firstly I'd like to commend you on a beautiful product.

Please my I enquire if you will make a mount for the Look 695 C-Stem? If I'm not wrong the bolts are 30mm apart, whereas the closest you have in production is 28mm. Appreciate any inputs you might have for me.

It is rather difficult to produce mount for Garmin device.

The lock on the Garmin is not 100% the same from Edge to Edge device.

On Friday fit my son a Garmin Edge 200 and it goes even very tight in garmin own plastic mount.


Please could you tell us what to do so that our Garmin units fit into your mount? I am terrified of breaking the tabs on my Garmin.

I have your Mount24 with the white plastic insert and a year old Garmin Edge 500.

No worries about stiff twist. Mine was the way too stiff for first month or so. Do not modify anything! The twist will be smooth over time. For time being just be careful and twist slow.

The tabs won't break by needing extra force to twist.... They break if u twist when pushing down or lifting up on the garmin instead of just purely rotating it.

A dab of dry lube makes a big difference.

^ This.

Much nicer after a squirt of silicone lube and a couple of inserts/removes. Thanks rijndael!

I actually have a mount for the Cinelli Ram style bar that I don't need anymore. I got it from Tillquist and loved it, but alas, no longer use that bar. It is the type that mounts with two bolts under the stem. Used on most bar/stem combos. PM me if interested.

Tillquist, I was wondering if you made a mount for the Edge 1000 that is compatible with the Giant Contact SLR stem? I don't see it on your website. In the case you were wondering which version of the stem, it's this one:
