Tillquist, how best do I order one of your FSA Plasma Garmin mounts?

Email him :) He just got back from holiday and emailed me last night so should be pretty responsive!

How do I find his email for a FSA Plasma Garmin mount?

He hasn't responded to my PM's which I knew would happen.

He said something about disabling his PMs because he got too many. Here is his website, his email should be there. http://tillquist.dk/

I bought a mount from him a couple months ago. He always responded to my email the next day.

Thanks for the Zipp mount, Morten! Nifty little thing!

Looks great I hope mine arrives this week.

First I could not understand why there is a gap but notice you run the Edge 200.

Is the 3T different than a Ritchey stem or similar? It seems most stems have very similar bolt size and pattern. I'm really interested in this because, although my step is flipped and thus the angle isn't optimal for a Garmin mount, it is the best solution available for 26 mm bars, I think.

Ugh, agree there. There's only one other option for 26.0, unless you count shims. Sucks for those of us with quills.

So can I use the FSA version, for example, this Performance Forte (which I'm presently using):

It seems like I should.

Also, if I could I'd bend it to compensate for an upward slope on my stem, but that doesn't look like a good idea.

I do not know how the profile is between the bolts, but the mount machined for the Zipp stem follows the contour between the bolts very very closely. At best, you may have to grind the mount so there is clearence between the mount and stem cap, at worst, it will not work. As for bending, not certain the type of aluminum is suitable for that.

One thing for certain, I liked the mount so much, I bought a new stem, and a new Garmin. Once I received the mount, I have no regrets what so ever.

Rules state that after posting such a nice pic, you also have to show us your (steel?) bike :wink:

Indeed, the mount is gorgeous.

Separation on the bolts of the Forte stem appears to be close to 25 mm according to my measurement.
