The SRAM's $20 compared to the overpriced counterparts.

Price/weight combination makes it so unbeatable. I could never think of anything to complain about it.

Yeah, the price is right. But most people want one which makes the Garmin sit lower. To make it flush with the stem.

@valant

Is it not more elegant if the join around the bars is only visible from underneath: so that viewed from the rider's perspective there is a single sweep of plastic that holds up the garmin. By way of differentiation from all the other products, I would also think about a mount that was as elegant as possible, even if this meant that it had to be fitted before shifters and tape. Without a firm differentiator I would say that you are going to be one of many.

I would strongly advise NOT making a mount that needs shifters and tape to be removed. No one is going to buy that when all of the alternatives are easy to fit.

The perfect out front mount exists if the best elements from all of the currently available choices were combined into a single unit.

For me, that would be:

    Top of Garmin screen level with top of handlebar
    Dedicated mounts for 500/510 and 800/810 - so unit sits close to stem face plate
    Mounting hardware should be underneath, out of sight
    No removal of tape / levers to install
    Maximum price of $25 / £20

I like the fact that you can tuck and center the k-edge, but not the weight. I've still kept using mine though.

Me too. But I would advise even less to go to the market with no differentiation over existing products, some from established companies.

all of these mounts are understandably focused on ease of installation/removal, but what about an option that mounts using a stem faceplate - surely that would be a neat solution, and only slightly more effort to fit?

That exists already, but it limited to specific stems

Here's the Tillquist project on his webpage. Not sure if he's taking orders... was designed to work with a 3T stem.

I just bought one not sure what he has in stock.

It's an amazing piece of work he has made and looks brilliant.

the problem with the k-edge (besides it's weight) is the fact that it's too tight and taking it on and off shaves some of the plastic off an already dubious mount. you can literally see plastic shavings come off the garmin as you attach it the first few times.

Definitely the cleanest looking / most discreet mounting option
