Check the faceplate on the extralite stem. If there is a flat area where the bolts mount ie doesn't go straight into a curve you could use a fetha mount. But due to the conical base of the extralite bolts would need convex washers, long ti m4 bolts ( i woild recommend torx for ti in this size head) and ideally a shim for the bolt hole to take it from 5mm id to 4mm id ( essentially cut a thin brass tube to length). If keen i have links to washers and bolts as i used the same for my homemade mcfk mount.

On a lark I bought a $2 (shipped) unbranded bar mount out front garmin mount from Ebay. Surprisingly, it is very good and feels very sturdy - even has a brass insert for the screw and it weighs just 16g. I've loaded it up with a small phone and extended battery hanging under and it refused to budge.

Hi does anyone know of an out front computer mount that would fit onto the bolts of the Extralite Hyperstem? If not what is the lightest handlebar mount?
Why not the little plastic ring mount that comes with a Garmin? Seems the lightest and you already own it. Why the love for the out front mounts? They look geeky to me.
In all seriousness.. it's easier to glance at while in a riding position. Also looks sleeker not being on top of the stem, almost hidden by the bars. More aero and I actually usually grab the stem to push the bike around..😄

Hi I appreciate it, but I already bought the Raceware. And ppl seemed to think that stem is a bit delicate in the clamping area/bolts.

Outfront is the way to go. On the stem I would have to look down and back if i was in my drops. With the outfront I juat have to glance down. The raceware is the way to go.
