A new K-edge mount for your Garmin GPS to place it out in front of your bar.
I must admit, as soon as I saw an ad for this product, I knew where it was coming from.
When you’re speeding downhill, hunched down low in an aerodynamic position, it’s impossible to see a Garmin mounted to the stem. At least not without lifting your head up and looking down, taking your eyes off the road. A dangerous thing to be doing downhill at 60kph+!
This mount places the device out in front of the stem so that it’s in your natural line of sight, allowing you to maintain your concentration where it should be – on the road – but still be able to safely glance at your chosen metrics.
K-edge and Garmin both produce a mount which does the same thing.
The K-edge version is slightly more expensive than the Garmin model but looks more robust, and is more adjustable.
I’ve got the K-edge version of the GoPro camera mount, and it’s rock solid.
Coincidentally, I’d been preparing this post and one of the guys in my club turned up on the Sunday ride with his new K-edge mount for his Garmin 500.
After stopping for a coffee and a bacon butty, we filmed this little clip so you can see what it’s all about.
