Yes! i'm a big fan of his design, i think it'll be a lot stronger than my current setup but I'll have to use mine to see.



Are you drilling the mount yourself from a solid piece of aluminum?

I used a cnc machine if that's what you mean. The finish is quite rough I'll admit.

A pop quiz OP. Aside from hood shape, why are Campagnolo Ultrashift hoods vastly more comfortable than stock DA9001 hoods or the reduced size CF hoods you are creating?

Hint: a condition you create with your new hood design is directionally opposite of both Campy and lessor degree stock DA hoods.

Without detracting from the hoods, the Garmin mount is really impressive. Love the DIY work ethic

Your levers are Sram Force? Is the doubletap in alluminium?

Sorry for the bad photo, I just use some sticky cloth tape. Takes a few seconds to wrap and is way lighter than normal hoods just a few grms of tape. it works well , no issues at all.
Cost of a roll of tape is less than £5. That is going to do way more hoods than you would need.
I have used this tape before and it does not leave a sticky mess. I have wrapped my bars with it.
Easy peasy light weight no fuss solution for ww hoods
