    Garmin Edge ....what's the best mount

    Just bought a new Garmin Edge 200 and was curious what kind of mount everyone uses, the stock mount with the rubber bands don't seem very secure.

    The stock mount is fine. I use two O-rings.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    it's bulletproof, I dont what kind of riding you are doing but I have a mount on my FS and HT - the garmin goes on and off for every ride - must used for over 500 miles now - no problem what-so-ever.
    Now if you are downhill runs, then IDK... but then who the hell uses a garmin for DH runs?

    The stock Garmin mount is great. I have taken a bunch of crashes with it on, no problem.

    That mount is totally fine. I wish the 305 had the same. An o ring will outlast zipties in a vibration situation. I am always worried about mine!

    Stock mount with black o-rings. On my hard-tail. And my full-sus. And my tri bike. And my roadie. And my other roadie. Multiple mounts all work great with just the one single G500.

    I was looking at the k-Edge , a little pricey but it might be worth it. I like the fact that it puts the Garmin out in front of the bars where I think it would be easier to read (especially out of the saddle)

    2nd generation K-edge, plastic insert seems like a good idea .

    Bar Fly 2.0 works great with all Garmins big and small.
