Noted the bolts are not pointing straight forward, what garmin mounts are you using for Tibia?
I am using an older version of this Bar Fly direct mount stem with my Tibia:

https://barflybike.com/collections/road ... ace-direct

Even though it is not listed as a compatible stem on the Bar Fly site, the instructions that came with the Tibia notes that it is compatible with this mount and it has worked fine. I was not crazy about it at first because it's not very light (can't remember the weight off the top of my head, but it was heavier than my K-Edge race mount) and it is designed to accomodate the larger computers, so there is a gap between the stem and my Edge 820/Wahoo Bolt. It has grown on me, as it keeps the handlebar clean (I use the Di2 climbing shifters next to the stem) and Bar Fly provides both a Garmin and Wahoo mount that can be easily switched out.

Well, it’s kind of fun to take things off to weigh them. Looks like 42.5 grams.

Like I said, dislike the gap from the stem to computer for the smaller computers, but have gotten used to it and probably looks fine with the larger Garmins.

The Enve version is all metal. I hope this is lighter.

It seems a bit heavy for that stem. Kind of counterproductive. I even think a bar mounted version would be a better option. That is if weight alone is the desired prio 1.
I have F3 mount, with an addition of 2 ti-bolts (35mm * 2)

Which weight less (still not light)
