here's mine

it's the aspiretechvelo [china] mount.. very sturdy alloy piece. i chopped down the carbon shorter and used a barend plug to replug the carbon bar. weighs 64 grams with 2 garmin rubber bands and the garmin female piece. u could probably tune it with ti bolts and stuff.

here's the position. i like it because u can angle the arm and stuff to get the top of the edge 500 level with ur stem , aesthetic win i think.... anyways.

Hmm, no idea. Try emailing woody@abovecategorycycling.com as he's the designer of the mount.

Nick, with the 800 out front you may need someone with a flag running in front of you..... It,d be ahead of the wheel :shock:

Heres mine I CNCed today. Ive made another one with a slot down the middle which is lighter for the wider bolt holes on my 3t team stem on my summer bike.

Thanks nathan.

My only worry is if an 800 could fit. Otherwise is nice and clean.

Tidy work! Love the way you've shaped it. Was it aluminium you used? Easy to machine, and did you do the bend in the metal yourself?

I was using the FSA mount but the carbon piece kept coming loose, especially on dirt roads, even after cranking the bolt pretty hard. I just took it off because I didn't want to chance losing the computer, but I suppose lock-tite or something might do the trick. I really like the stem bolt mount idea...

Oooh...I'm liking the Quarq Garmin mount. It looks as if the computer will sit lower than on the Bar Fly, which is what I would prefer.
Might have to wait months before it's available though...

Well... Maybe not as low.
I'd post a pic, but WW don't make that easy to do for some reason.
