New K-Edge Garmin Edge Computer Mount Adds Adjustability, Machined Alloy Construction

K-Edge Garmin Edge GPS cycling computer mount with adjustable length for Edge 200 500 800

At this point in the game, if you’re going to bring a new Garmin GPS cycling computer mount to the market, it should probably do something different than the recent introductions from Bar Fly, Quarq and 3T.

Uncreatively named “Computer Mount for Garmin Edge”, K-Edge does get creative where it counts. It’s the first we’ve seen to offer adjustable positioning, letting you mount either the Edge 200, 500 or 800 snug to the front of your stem despite the different sizes. It’s 100% machined from 6061 T6 alloy with a sliding arm design. It positions the computer directly in front of the stem, with the screen just below the top level of the stem.

Claimed weight is 30g, verified on our own scale, it’s made in the USA and has a lifetime guarantee.

Unlike the others, it’s 100% metal. No plastic anywhere. The lock tabs are plenty firm, lest you worry about them bending too often and breaking. Turning the computer into the mount requires a noticeably firmer twist than with the stock Garmin mounts.

The bottom bolt tightens the sliding mount into position. Loosen it to adjust fore/aft computer placement. It’s slotted so it won’t rotate. You’ll need to leave about 1.5mm between the handlebar clamp and the stem so it can slide on.

There’s about half an inch of useable adjustment. Having the screen out in front a bit makes it quicker and easier to read when riding (you don’t have bring your eyes so far downward). One could argue that it’s slightly more aero, too.

Not a bad price when you consider the Barfly is 40 bucks and is plastic.

I’ve heard they vibrate excessively. I guess the aluminum is too thin.

just a thought plastic on plastic= both have a little ware, metal on plastic = metal no ware plastic alot of ware??? just a thought

while the adjustability is cool, and the lower position seems better than the barfly, the clamp on this one is much less svelte

Ronnie, I went on a short ride for the first time yesterday and had no vibration or movement from anything. It actually feels more snug and tight than the stock mount with the rubber bands.

do they fit a 35mm bar?

The Barfly really does the trick, but ma n are they over priced. This at $10 more does it and being CNC’d is so clean and sano. Nice job K-Edge.

No stinking vibration here mates. What are you thinking with these garantuan hex bolts…Come on now.

You should probably learn to spell “wear”

Star buck - 07/25/12 - 2:34am

Actually if you check the commodities market you will find that high end plastics are roughly the same price if not more than aluminum. Image is everything…….but hey I hope that aluminum is plastic handlebar friendly.

Star buck:

Manufacturing Method: Machining is expensive. Injection molding is cheap.

Jim - 08/16/12 - 4:56pm

Got one…..love it! For an extra $10. over the Barfly….well worth it Imho.
