    Barfly like Garmin mount for aero bars?

    I have aero bars that are not round where a Barfly normally mounts.

    What have others done to get the Garmin out in front instead of falling back to the rubber band Garmin mount?

    Perhaps if you told us what bars you have, someone might be able to help you?

    Barfly like Garmin mount for aero bars?

    Raceware makes garmin mounts of several kinds, including TT aero bar specific ones

    They are expensive though

    Not crazy about the aesthetics of that custom mount.

    I'd rather find a mount with a flexible clamp end to shape to the odd aero portion to side of stem.

    It is unclear from Raceware's site whether any of their clamps have flexible material.

    you could always call or email them...what a concept, eh? when you have weird/non standard parts you can't be picky.

    I emailed them on the first post re: Raceware. What a concept, eh?

    I can be picky until I find what I like. What a concept, eh?
