Are you running a Garmin/Barfly setup on your CB?

    Anyone running a Garmin 500/510/800 etc. and using a Barfly/SRAM style bracket on your Cruzbike?

    If so, could you post a photo or two of how you have it arranged? I'm curious about fitment and viewing angle, esp on Silvio or Vendetta bikes.

    Take a look at the 2nd video on this thread. The Barfly with Garmin 500.

    Thanks Rick. On close

    Thanks Rick. On close inspection, I don't think there's enough room for a Barfly bracket between the boom and the flare on my carbon 'Ivan' bars. I'll have to cut and weld. :(

    Nope, no space on mine

    Nope, no space on mine either. And also the ultra wide Cruzbike handlebar clamp means that my Garmin clamp can't be centered which is kinda irritating. So I am sticking with the original Garmin quarter turn mount for now.

    I mounted my Garmin Edge 605

    I mounted my Garmin Edge 605 to the left of the clamp on my Silvio. Originally, I wanted to center the unit, but that was more of a need for symmetry over anything else. It's certainly not a problem, since it's still directly in my view.

    I took the boom and 'ivan'

    I took the boom and 'ivan' carbon bars to work today and robbed the sram (just like a barfly) mount off my bosses bike to test fit. Though not perfect as there is a small gap around the right side clamping surface due to the shape of the carbon bars, it will certainly work with a longer bolt. I've ordered one, so I'll be the test dummy.
