Works fine... I broke 2 RWD mounts when going over bumps with my carbon ergonova bars, so go careful if your running carbon bars. Don't over tighten the tension nut... My first 510 got run over when the first RWD mount let go... My second was saved by the tether strap! I'm now running one of tilquists alloy mounts.. No probs now!

Wow, who'd have thunk it that what would seem to be a simple thing like getting the perfect mount would be so complicated? From browsing this and other threads, it seems there's tonnes of different options and it's hard to keep up on which ones are the latest, pros and cons of each, so I'd really appreciate some current advice.

I'm looking for a mount for my Garmin Edge 500 for my road bike (31.8mm FSA K-Force carbon monocoque bars) and my TT bike (3T Pro alloy aero bars). On the road bike, I'd like the Garmin positioned a little in front of the stem and on the TT bike, I guess in between the aero bars would be ideal?

Which option is best for these positions and is also light and reliable (I'd rather pay a few quid extra and not have to worry about it possibly falling off and destroying my Garmin)? Thanks!

Just got my 510 and at first it seems to fit perfectly on the original RWD mount...but the 510 sits so close to my 3T ARX LTD stem that any bump i hit makes the two rub together and gives you a annoyingly loud vibration sound.

Looks like I'm in the market for a new mount.

What's the best???

It took an awful lot of time that they came up with this.

The problem (as I see it) with the mounts that involve the stem itself, either bolted to the faceplate or on the faceplate, is that while they may be beautiful piece of craftsmanship they are also subject to the angle of the stem & headtube. With a mount that utilizes the handlebar and is free to rotate, such as the RWD one, you can adjust the angle not only give a better viewing angle for you (and we're all different!), it may also be a little bit more aero heading into the win(d).

So if you've got your stem angled up, which some people do, then the Garmin's angle is affected as well, and it presents a larger surface area into the wind.

I see your point but the angle of the faceplate on most stems is 90deg to the horizontal... Therefor the garmin should be in an ideal viewing position if your bike position is setup appropriately...

I run tillquists mount on both my 3T -17 and -6 degree stems and both are in the identical (ideal) viewing positions...
