Standard Garmin mount, the one that extends out from handlebars, got pinched recently. Luckily I took the Garmin inside with me at the time.
I just used the other fit in the Garmin box with the rubberbands in the mean time.
Looking online and can see a K-Edge XL mounts along with many other forms of mounts.
Does anyone use the K-Edge mount? Do they go alright?
I cant see why pay more for something that does the same job as the Garmin standard hardened plastic ones at this point.
Alloy V Plastic really?
Just curious at peoples thoughts.
K-Edge $10-15 more
I have an alloy K Edge. It's great. Better than Garmin (which I recently got) because it allows the unit to sit flush with the stem not above it as it extends out in front. It's also a much sleeker design.
The design is the first thing I noticed, for what its worth more aero too
Old K-edge were crap for killing the back mounts on your edge 500, I had to
file the sharp edges of the k-edge adaptor to make stop chewing out the plastic locking
mounts on back of my 500...was a known issue that peeps would modify themselves
with a file.
current versions have all been fixed I hear..ie...buy new...not second hand one
they were keen to steal a bar mount
I use one of the K-Edge Garmin/GoPro combo mounts - it is solid and holds up the GoPro handily. Even when I throw on the massive after market battery so I get decent life out of the GoPro. Means one less mount on the handlebars as well, so there is a little more space after all of the mounts and lights are thrown on.
