Anyone know which out front mount (Garmin) will work with an Enve aero carbon bar? I use a Pro stem so the Enve mount is out of the question. There's not a lot of room from the stem clamp to the part where the handlebar begins to flare.
how about stem bolt mounts?
one of these should work

Good ideas. On the Pro stem the faceplate bolts face the other direction. Any other ideas?

Look at that. Just looked here last week and these weren't posted. Thanks for the heads-up.

I just received two mounts from Tillquist, for my Ritchey WCS 4-axis stem (the shorter one for edge 500). They are light, sexy, and awesome. Very happy customer.

I tried the Fetha mounts first (because they are local to me, Melbourne, Oz) but then realised that their product for Ritchey 4-axis stem is 9mm, not 14mm (not sure why). They were very pleasant and no issues with refund. I'm sorry to say (for them) that Tillquists product is far superior in every way. Even the bolts he sent were lighter and looked nicer.

(Have had my computer on my stem for years... hated the aesthetic of a single arm of plastic... but the bolt-on option is awesome)
It's ALL about the bike.

Finally something to match carbonworks cages!
16g is fairly respectable

a tad pricey for a pair of carbon tubes though

I have just ordered a pair- hopefully they’re as good as the cages

Followed up with k-Edge on the Garmin/Pro mounts. They confirmed they have absolutely no distribution rights; they are only the manufacturer. Shimano is the sole distributor.

I ordered two of them also. Anxious to see how they fit/work. (I had the F3 FormMount, and although very clever and nicely made, didn't suit me very well.)

yeah, same here. the Form3 is nice, but the ends didn't quite fit properly. not sure if it was thoroughly tested on many stems.
also, i had one pop off on the B2VT ride. it was a rough road but the center bolt just came right off. had to search for the Garmin in the rough, but ended up finding it and the center bolt was still attached. loose tolerance i think.

I've decided to come into the 21st century and finally get a Garmin 520 in the sale and with discount on top.

I've been searching for an out front mount compatible with my AX Lightness Rigid stem. I assume I'd have to go custom? The AX bars have flat tops so I guess the only option may be to mount it round the stem using the standard mount? I'd rather have an on the bar option as a minimum though.

Thought I should add, the bolts are supposed to go through the other way round to most stems. The bar is upside down in my pic, but it's the only one I had on Imgur.

Should I try and make something from aluminium or is there a viable option out there?

My thoughts for a custom one would be mounting where the small aluminium flap goes underneath the bolt heads (in it's place). It could then come down and out front. Alternatively it could attach to the stem bolts via a couple of nuts, but think this would be an inferior design.
