    TT and Tri guys with quarter turn garmins..

    where/how/what do you use to mount your garmin?

    i looked up mounts but haven't seen anything that really jumped out at me.

    i want to put it as close to my bar ends as possible so i dont have to stick my aero helmet fin straight up in the air to glance at my current power, etc. i'm thinking out in front of me on the aero bars is the perfect place.

    suggestions? i've seen a couple really ugly solutions but hoping for something a little more elegant.

    thanks!

    Here is a site that has a few suggestions, scroll down from the OP which shows a sweet setup on a road bike.

    Those are some pretty good ideas! I have to admit I dont like mine on the stem on the TT bike as you have to look down to read it.

    That mount will add a good deal of clean air drag.

    You are note supposed to read your computer during a TT. If you feel a need to read it, it means you should hammer harder.

    That's not true. Unless you want suboptimal pacing over a 40k TT.

    Exactly. Besides, when you put it in a good location, it's no biggie to glance at your power from time to time. Given that you're riding alone it's really not a big deal.

    I have used my computer on many TT's including the 2 I have won. It gives me good info where I might be able to hammer it harder.

    I've read my computer on all the triathlons that I've lost.

    IIRC the picture posted from ST is a homemade contraption made from a spoke.

    yep, it is, but a local bike shop here does these..did mine and it looks absolutely incredible. no more sticking my tt helmet into the wind to glance at my wattage.

    state 40k tt is a week from saturday. i cant tell you how helpful this is already in training..i can watch my intervals while continuing to face forward...helping get more comfortable in this position so when i do the race it will feel more natural.

    i cant imagine it adds that much drag. i'll try & post a pic shortly.
