On race day we hope our bike performs as a single unit, a well-oiled machine that is more than the sum of its many, many parts. Some of those “little parts” can be go-fast bits such as ceramic jockey wheels, some are pure vanity like personalised stickers or anodised bolts to match your colour schemes. Others lie somewhere in the middle.
The RaceWare Direct Garmin TT bar mount is such an item. Depending on your setup and situation this bar mount could be an essential bit of kit or a neat little customising tool.
Regardless of your reason for using this little problem solver the weight penalty is negligible, tipping the scales at only 8 grams including the hardware, well the one screw anyway.
The mount is specifically oriented to be fitted to your aero extensions and place your Garmin centrally between your bars in a position that gives you better access and visibility with minimum hassle and weight.
RaceWare Direct are a UK 3D printing company specialising in light weight funky little problem solvers that don’t require runs of thousands of units to be worth doing. Being 3D printed also means there is no excess material contributing to the mounts light weight. The mount is made from a nylon material which, unlike some mounts which comtain metal parts, is kind to your Garmin’s mounting tabs.
With the number of small mounts and fixings on bike these days it is becoming pretty important to have a decent set of small hex keys, 2mm, 2.5mm and 3mm were seldom used items in the home mechanics tool kit, these days they get a pretty regular workout. The mount is a one minute job to fit. With the screw removed the nylon is flexible enough to be placed around the TT extension easily then fixed off with the screw provided.
The RaceWare Direct Garmin TT mount is $57.00 incl. postage and has just become available locally from Full Beam Australia.
