Are there any good products to mount a Garmin 800 to Aero bars on a TT bike? I found one product but it's not wide enough.

There's a thread on this here:
http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=99896&hilit=garmin+srm+mount

It started as an enquiry about 500 mounts, but applies equally to the 800.

Personally I use these. They're brilliant:

In some cases you can use the Bar Fly and mount to the basebar and have the unit sit between the aero extensions. Or create a small bridge between the aero extensions and mount the barfly to this.

I purchased a NOB Aerobar mount. If you look at it the mount is pretty small. I rigged it with some electrical tape for my last race but am looking for a cleaner and more reliable option.

I have a Barfly on my road bike and love it. No way to apply on my TT bike because the stem is integrated and not round.

Race Ware Direct is CAD 3d printing bar mounts. I just got one of his TT mounts, I'm sure he could make something to your specifications, with little problems!

Want some pictures of mine?

Hi,

We would love to help you with a TT mount for your Garmin, let us know the bar diameter and centre to centre measurement you need between the head unit and the bars and lets see what we can do for you.

The thing is a perfect fit for 22-23mm bars (what my tt bar measured at).
