K-Edge is the way to go if you want an out front mount. Others try and to duplicate but this is the only way to go. Its nice as I can run both my Garmin 820 and my Cyliq without any cable interference.
-Easy to mount
-Garmi (820) literally clicks in place
-Video from my GoPro Hero3 was more stable using the K-Edge compared to an OEM GoPro handlebar mount
-With a NiteRider Lumina GoPro adapter, I was able to mount a light to the K-Edge as well.
-Still a bit pricey
-The socket cap screw for the GoPro interface is worthless. To tighten the GoPro in a stable position, the head got stripped, resulting in me having to use an extractor bit to remove the screw.
-Use a Thumbscrew in lieu of the socket cap screw. Although it may not be aesthetically pleasing, it will make for adjusting and swapping a lot easier.
I have other Garmin mounts. I wish I'd purchased the K-Edge first. It is light, beautifully made, and the GoPro mount makes it easy to add a camera or front light where you want it. Installation was a snap with the mount fitting on my 32.8 Pro bars perfectly. Its position accommodates my Garmin Edge 820, holds it well clear of the stem, and makes it easy to read, in or out of the saddle.
Made from 6061t6 aluminum alloy! Very sturdy! Black anodized finished! Taken all these in consideration, this is well price!I got this mount so I could 'clean up' the cockpit of my road bike, combining my Garmin Virb mount and bike computer mount. The length is long enough to clear all my cables, and not get into the way of them while I turn my handlebars. The weight is nice and low, while keeping it super stiff, so the video I take is nice and stable. The hinged design makes it easy to mount... my older one I have on my cyclocross was not hinged so I had to take out two screws to mount, this one only takes one. The quarter turn computer mount is nice and sold and doesn't allow my Garmin 1000 to wiggle while riding. The camera mount below comes with a screw and is compatible with GoPro cameras and Garmin.
The K-Edge combo mount for Garmin and Go-Pro has provided exactly what I was looking for a rock-solid mount for my Garmin GPS unit coupled with a way to mount my Go Pro in a secure, vibration-free manner.
The Garmin mount is easy to use (turn and lock in) and very secure - zero issues with the Garmin becoming loose even when traveling over rough terrain. The Go Pro mount is unobtrusive, and very secure - - no concerns with the unit working lose, falling off, etc. It holds the Go Pro very firmly, with no shakingbouncing whatsoever so the images captured are as clear as possible.
Overall, an excellent product.
