Hi guys.

As the title says. Contemplating this stem but I don’t want one unless I can get it to work with a bolt on mount. Anyone found a solution?

It should work with Brafly Race Direct mount and other compatible mounts (such as the one for the Venge and other 3d printed versions).

Thanks. I’ve looked at that barfly mount but it doesn’t look a good fit with the wahoo bolt that I use.

User @WheresWaldo from this forum has some 3d printed parts that should work better with your Bolt, such as this one: http://shpws.me/OQxZ

This is his thread: viewtopic.php?p=1120276#p1120276

The barfly mount works perfectly with my Wahoo Elemnt, so can't see why it wouldn't work with the Bolt.

Thanks Andre I’ll check that out

Ross I just think the gap between stem and computer looks excessive to me. The bolt is obviously smaller than the elemnt.

I'm also interested in what you find. Perhaps it ends with a bar-mounted version?

I don’t think I’d settle for a bar mounted version to be honest. I just think I’m a bit past that now having gotten used to how much cleaner the mounts look when they’re fixed to the stem.

It probably sounds a little vein but I think that’s a deal breaker for me. I’ll definitely report back if I find a solution. From what I understand the barfly mount mentioned above is recommended by thm. So hopefully I can find something similar but with a shorter mount.

I also noted THMs manual says bar fly mount. I wonder what suits MCFK (anybody)?

Just for future reference in case anyone else is trying to find a mount that’s thm tibia compatible. I’ve done a little bit of searching and it seems the barfly type system is the only one that works with the stem. There are various companies offering after market mounts that are based on the barfly system, but you need the mounting hardware from the barfly first to be able to use them. As no one else can replicate it by the looks of it.

I’ve decided I want the thm bars and stem. So I’m going down the route of buying the barfly mount and then probably buying an after market mount to get the length of mount that I ultimately want.

Why wouldn't THM just make one? I'm screwed as I have four Tibia's.
