I don't get why I've never seen another person with these even though I've been running them for about three years now. They're almost universal, solid, cheap, and easy to install. There are like no downsides, y'all sleepin on it. If it wasn't obvious, you can change the angle and the bolt width, which makes it compatible with almost every stem out there. I've put it a Pro Vibe Sprint and it could have gone wider, but it probably wouldn't fit a narrower bolt width stem like a first gen Zipp SCSL or 3T ARX II, but thats sorta about it. Everything else is either uglier, heavier, more expensive, has less features, or is incompatible with other stems. No one paid me to put this up nor am I associated in any way with Fouriers, theres just too many threads out there asking the same question when everyone should just buy this thing and solve world hunger.

I mean. It's heavy, and expensive compared to others out there. I just picked up one that looks similar, but it's half the price ($18) and weighs less, including a GoPro mount that's removable. It's not universal (Tarmac stem), it it's adjustable on the stem. So it's lighter and cheaper and adjustable. Not sure you found the holy grail.

Moot argument since your mount isn't universal, which sort of is the whole point of this post.

Lol, okay, either is yours. You even said that yourself.

It's heavier and more expensive than a lot of others. And the swivel to change the angle just adds another point of failure. Lots of downsides.I have a 3D printed one that is half the price and a third the weight (this is weightweenies you know). So better in every way.

I don't think its quite fair to compare compatibility with 4 stems vs 99% of the stems on the market. Your posts aren't contributing to the conversation, but congratulations on the ability to type.

That mount look nice.
It certainly has its niche.

-There are many universal bolt width carbon fiber mount from China, they weight less and cost less ( Example) . But they aren't angle adjustable. So, if your stem have suitable bolt angle, it's better than this thing.
-If you know bolt pitch of your stem, you can order Raceware mount which is stiffer and weight less. You can also ask them to alter the angle before print it. But each unit only fit a specific bolt pitch.

So, what left for this mount to be the best option:
1) you don't care much about weight
2) you need angle adjustability
3) you plan to reuse this same mount on more than one stem type

There, if all of these 3 conditions fit you, it's (one of) the best option.

Hahahaha, you're too funny. You made a very bold claim saying that this was the "BEST" computer mount and even compared it to solving world hunger, even if it was a joke. So you gotta expect some feedback. And like Hexsense said, it has a few cool features if you need them, but hardly near the best mount out there, and not even the cheapest or lightest. But what do I know, my only ability is how to type.

Not B E S T at all.
Doesn't work for wahoo.
Heavy
The pivots aren't tensioned so if you push the unit it will tilt unless you support it when pushing buttons.
Go pro mount isn't detachable
Looks too bulky

So in conclusion. It's a mount and there are lots of them out there 😜

Apart from......not being universal, solid, cheap, or easy to install.
Have you really not used any other sorts of computer mount? Or ridden much on bad pavement?

I was given one of these as a gift. It looks like it was made as a school project - sooooo much glue on it.

Absolutely not worth the money.
