Hi,
I'm running a standard Sram Garmin out front mount, but would really like to get a mount that mounts directly on the stem,

I'm on a Ritchey C220 stem hence the bolts are tilted which makes it difficult to find a mount that fits,

any suggestions?

Regards
Mads

(Nevermind, didn't read close enough and suggested a C260 mount…)

Hi MayhemSWE and Georidepaul,
thank you for suggestions but as you mention not applicable....I'm looking into the australian Fetha mount, which appears to be suitable, as it appaerently pivots both upwards and downwards....I've written them and awaits answer and will post back here,

I'm still open for suggestions :-)

The fetha won't work easily. It is drilled for 5mm bolts and you have 4mm bolts on the ritchey. The ritchey bolts are also convex on the backside, so you'll need convex washers to fill the space on the faceplate so the mount has a flat surface. Then you need to find a long m4 bolt with a large head and ideally a shim for inside the mount bolt space to take up the extra width. Ie. Brass Tube 5mm outside diameter 4mm internal diameter. Lastly as thr bolts face each other the mount (if mounted on the lower bolts) may interfere with tightening the upper bolts.

Hi Nifty,
doesn't sound all that great :-)

Guess my options are down to sticking with the current setup or swapping out the Ritchey for a 'normal' stem....

Thanks all for the ideas and insights,

Anyone else interested in something like this? It can be made fairly easily. I have a C220 myself.

Not gonna be very pretty, but… Ritchey have a C220 GoPro mount which potentially could be combined with a something like a Trek/Bontrager Blendr computer mount.
