Thanks Rich. As Kode says the mount system is also compatible with the thm stem. I found a Bikeradar video with the guy from thm saying so. It looks like the back of the face plate has a recessed section which I guess helps?kode54 wrote: ↑Tue Aug 13, 2019 3:13 pmThe THM says on their installation guide that the Barfly works in a similar fashion. It uses this same mount.

Those stems have a slot in the middle of the faceplate.TurboTommy wrote: ↑Mon Aug 05, 2019 2:54 pmThanks WW I see what you’re saying. I didn’t really understand how the barfly mount works to be honest. But now I see it relies on a small plate being bolted through the gap in the faceplate. I see what you’re saying about you not being able to supply that part.
The issue with the thm stem is obviously that the bolts that fix the plate to stem are not pointing straight forward. And that seems to be compounded by the fact that the bolts are attached to the stem rather than being screwed into the stem. So the reverse of the normal system.
Buying the barfly just for the hardware seems annoying to me. I’m hoping I can find a better solution. Thanks for your help. Your mounts look great for what it’s worth.
On a side note which mount is that in your picture rich? It looks much shorter than the ones I’ve been looking at.
