I was thinking about buying the Garmin Edge 500 but I have oversize handlebars and have struggled in the past to get lights etc that can be mounted on them. My current Cat Eye is attached with cable ties so wasn't a problem.

Does anyone know what the mount is like that comes with the Garmin and will it fit on oversize bars?

    It attaches with 2 rubber o-rings. It'll be fine on either your bars or on your stem.
    More problems but still living....

    Yup plenty of o-rings in differing sizes supplied too. Mounted on my Road and MTB stems effortlessly and securely.
  • 31.8mm easy, although mines on the stem which is even fatter (or phatter if you're feeling gangsta).

    It can attach to quite wide stems, so your handlebars will be fine.

    And to add, the mounting is secure enough for mountain biking, so it's a system that works well. You just need to be sure you have enough space to rotate the unit into place.
