Great mount for my Garmin Edge 530
I am now to mountain / gravel biking and needed a mount for my Garmin Edge 530. I looked at several models and this one stuck out for its carbon fiber appearance and ease of mounting. I attached it to my handle bars so it rides center of the bike - on an angle that doesn't require me to look straight down. I ride with it every time and have even endured a few wrecks. The mount and the GPS unit have both survived. I just took it on a 57+ mile gravel ride in Michigan's U.P. (the Crusher) and it served its purpose perfectly. Following the race I purchased one for a buddy who rode with me.
Bought one a couple of months ago, and loved it so much I bought two more to fit to other bikes! I use a garmin Edge 20, and the stock mount was O, but had problems reading the display while the computer was mounted on my handlebars, due to the polarized lenses in my sunglasses. This mount allowed me to move the computer ahead of the hbars, and adjust the angle for better viewing. Holds well, a bit tricky to mount on 25.4mm mountain bike hbars, but with a bit of Yankee ingenuity, I was able to make it work. On 31.8mm road hbars, fits great with no shim, and holds fast. Looks cool, too!
Securely mounts the Garmin / Great viewing position
I lost my last bike computer due to a mounting system just like the Garmin's. I even replaced the elastic bands with more secure zip ties. It worked for a good while but on a recent ride the computer was where it was supposed to be, a bit later not. This mount is cheaper than Garmin's optional one but of really good quality and provides a secure mount for the computer. Because of the size of the computer placing it out front with this mount actually puts it in exactly the right spot.
This is an affordable alternative to the Garmin brand name mount. It mounts easily. I purchase a couple, so I can have a mount on each bike instead of moving the mounts around. It came with two rubber collars of different thicknesses to customize the fit to the handlebar. Neither actually worked for me, but my bike is "vintage" - nothing fits it. I have a couple of those promotional giveaway rubber jar openers that I cut up to shim everything - and they worked with this mount, too.

Price vs functionality peg the scale on this purchase. I like this mount better than the original Garmin unit from perspective of stiffness and appearance. This was one of those not so typical purchases that way exceeded my expectations.
Sturdy, Light Weight, Looks Great
I bought this when I bough my Garmin Edge 520 Plus. Turned out that the Garmin came with an extension mount, so I returned this. However, before I did, I compared it to the Garmin and found it to be lighter and a bit more compact. The Garmin clicked perfectly into place. I would certainly buy this if I was looking for an extension mount. Just wasn't worth spending the extra money to buy what I got for free with the device.
Very easy to install
Shipped quickly. Very easy to install. In fact, I initially installed this upside down (so I was not able to put my Garmin into the holder. It was my fault as I never read the directions prior to installation.). When I went out for a ride and the initial use of this item, I discovered my mistake and was able to remove and properly install in less than 5 minutes. It has held my Garmin very securely; no movement during my rides. Would definitely recommend this product.
Sleek look at a great price
Great! Shorter arm than the original one that came with the Garmin device, the styling and shorter arm gives it a sleek look. Holds device firmly and is less expensive than a second Garmin mount! Perfect!
Does as intended
A well made device to securely hold a Garmin device. It was easy to install and works as intended. Well made and at a reasonable price. Fast shipping.
I am extremely satisfied with the Garmin bike mount I purchased from your company. No more needing to adjust the position of my Garmin because of rough trails or bumps. My Garmin remains in the perfect position to be read while I am riding down mountain trails regardless of how rough the riding is. Thanks KOM for a great product.
