i have a set of profile carbon ram bars and want to fit my garmin out front..

im looking for a mount that fits on the steerer and giver a bar under my bars, so i can then mount a garmin mount to it.

hoping then it will poke out from under my bars

something like this

but that one is about 4 weeks delivery away and the bar section is oval and not oversize.

had a search but not really sure what to search for so cant find one.

can you guys help

    do the bars have any fittings for a computer mount?

    cinelli ram integrated have two mounting bolts under the 'stem' area, i use the srm mount drilled to match these

    if your bars are similar there's the cinelli checkpoint mount that can be used to fit a standard bar mount...

    That would work maybe but censored me $89

    Mine don't have any holes drilled and I don't like the idea of drilling them in case it weakens them, that's why I was looking at the option of a stem spacer type one,

    Have you looked at Raceware? They have a Edge style Garmin mount that fits the Giant Propel aero bars and may therefore fit the profile of the Ram bars

    yep seen them but i woul have to dril the bars and am worried that would possibly weaken them,, that would be ideal though if it would work,

    I use one of these for my light with it mounted at the bottom of the stem clamp, no reason why you couldn't use it at the top of the stem clamp

    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    Can't see how that would work on intergrated bars though

    Didn't read that bit. Gaffe tape? :lol:

    tbh if the bars have no mounting holes i'd just use the basic mount attached to the 'stem' using the rubber rings

    a garmin isn't heavy, but with that steerer mount plus the garmin mount extending out even further, the thing is going to be at the end of a relatively long lever, on rougher road surfaces it'll be vibrating up and down like crazy

    THey have two - one fits Propel stem/bar combo which would need drilling but they also have one for Propel bars. Same as K-edge but piece that wraps around the bar is eliptical rather than circular. Might be too far off centre though with yours.
