Took my TT bike out yesterday and noticed that I couldn't see anything on my Garmin as it was attached to the stem. Any good ideas/products that are suited for the Edge for a TT bike?

I made one of block of balsa wood wrapped with carbon cloth. Attached to to bars using zip ties. Even simpler to use piece of pvc tube ziptied between the bars.

Currently I am working with another solution to move computer (currently using Edge 500) even further to be able to use torpedo mount bottle between the hands.

I had the same issue when I had my Garmin mounted on my stem. Bought one of these and cut it down. My hands block the air and I can easily see it by glancing down.

Pardon the crappy picture.

Also what works surprisingly well is 2 piece of electrical tape wrapped around the extensions and then the garmin is placed between them. Idea is very similar to juanmoretime's solution but this way the garmin is laying right in between your extensions and you can move it even further forward without worry it will hit your arms.

It is a poor mans solution but worked surprisingly well. I found I could use the same tape for weeks and it would still hold. Since the tape is cradling the garmin from both top and bottom I never feared it falling out. Don't have a picture to show right this second.

Top of steerer tube and two zip ties. Not so pretty, but works great.

Exactly what I do, too.

Couple of wraps of electrical tape has to be lighter than a mount as well. ;)

This topic was recently covered in the UK TT forum, some more suggestions there:

I used the same idea (independantly) as post 18 from the above link. Worked fine in my first race yesterday. Able to see it easily and no movement whatsoever. Was cut really tight in the first place which helped.

I use a K-Edge, fully extended, tilted down just a little bit, so I can look down and view it. I will try to post a photo later.

At last year's Interbike, K-Edge announced a new version for TT bikes. I sent them an e-mail, and was told that the product would be made available in March, due to manufacturing constraints with their current lineup. Considering we're in April, and I haven't seen anything, and the regular mount still has a 10-day backlog on their website, I wouldn't hold my breath on that. However, the current model works well if it fits your bullhorn.

I've just got a Raceware TT mount. Really nicely made and puts the garmin where you need it.

I use the Barfly aerobar mount on my TT bike. It's plastic, but still holds the Garmin securely.
