To this point, Bar Fly has been focusing mostly on computer mounts for the road. To make the computer easier to see, Bar Flys (Flies?) put the computer out in front of the bar – not so good for mountain biking. In order to protect the computer and address issues like the stock mount moving around while using the buttons, short stems, number plates, etc. the Bar Fly MTB will put the Garmin behind the faceplate for safe keeping.
More details and another “spy shot” after the break.
Even though the mount is designed for MTB, it can obviously be used for CX, road, or anything that could use a little extra protection of the Garmin. The MTB will use the same engagement mechanism as their new 2.0 mount with a more tactile click on Garmin Edge 200/500/510/800/810 computers. Positioning of the computer should be better for riders using short, rise, and -17° stems a better viewing angle due to the adjustability.
Like the rest of their mounts, it is made from Delrin, is carbon bar safe, won’t damage your Garmin’s wings, and includes their Buy one and you’re done warranty. If it breaks for any reason, they’ll replace it for life. Pricing for the MTB will be set at $24.95 and they should be available on July 15th.
