Keep it secure.

A secure place for your valuable cycling computer on your mountain bike is difficult to find. Until now, the best place has most likely, and unfortunately, been in your jersey pocket. Tate Lab's Bar Fly MTB 3.0 Mount changes that. The latest in its series of aftermarket cycling computer mounts is designed for off-road and all-terrain applications -- mountain bike, cyclocross, DH and enduro.

Designed with the same detail as its road and time-trial Bar Fly, Tate Labs' MTB 3.0 utilizes its signature 1/8th turn positive engagement technology to secure your computer. The mount clamps directly to the handlebars, placing your computer screen level no matter which stem you choose. In addition, it positions the device directly in the center of the handlebar for easier viewing. The MTB Bar Fly 3.0 accommodates virtually any stem -- negative rise and shorties included -- riders uses to refine their positions.

The 3.0 is manufactured in the USA out of Delrin, which is a stiff thermoplastic used in applications where durability is an absolute must. It has no screws to lose, and 'zero risk of over-clamping and crushing lightweight carbon bars.'

The Tate Labs Bar Fly MTN 3.0 has a 31.8mm handlebar clamp and is compatible with the Garmin Edge 200/500 and 510/800/810. It is available in Black.

I thought I had written a review on this, but I guess I hadn't...

I had been using one of these with a Garmin 500 for about a year on my MTB with no real complaints, and then I upgraded to a Garmin 510. As soon as I put the 510 in, I noticed that it didn't fit as snugly, but I thought maybe the Bar Fly was just a little worn. I bought a second MTB, and another Bar Fly for that bike, but the 510 still didn't fit as snugly as the 500 did. Not a dealbreaker, but puzzling.

Fast forward a bit.. One of my Bar Flies broke at the tabs just removing my Garmin 510 (clockwise as recommended) and then when I went to replace it with my older Bar Fly from my other bike, that one broke taking it off of the handlebars. I removed the bolt and slid the Bar Fly down to the narrowest part of the bars and opened it just wide enough to remove it, but it snapped. That Bar Fly was at least a year old, but the one that broke at the tabs was only a few months old. Overall, I am very disappointed.

I was at my LBS last week and they are now stocking the SRAM Garmin mount with positive feedback from users. Priced $5 less than the Bar Fly, and looking to be just a bit nicer in terms of design and construction, I went for one. The Garmin 510 fits snugly, although time will be the test. I attached a photo of the SRAM mount. I posted a photo of the failed Bar Flies separately on this item page.

I'm going to have to update my review. One of my Barflies (on the left) broke at the tabs just removing my Garmin (clockwise as recommended) and then when I went to replace it with my older Barfly from my other bike, that one broke taking it off of the handlebars. I removed the bolt and slid the Barfly down to the narrowest part of the bars and opened it just wide enough to remove it, but it snapped. That Barfly (on the right) was at least a year old, but the one on the left was only a few months old. Overall, I am very disappointed.

I used this all season and never once did my gps fall off.

Functional but not strong

I run a K-Edge adjustable steer tube mount on my trail bike and I bought one of these Bar Flys to run on my DH bike as it has a direct mount stem and not much room to try to make a steer tube mount work. I love my Garmin and am a huge data geek. On my first ride with this mounted to my M9, I had a low speed OTB. My Bar Fly was set up so the Garmin was behind the bars, above the stem. I went out the front of the bike after the bike stopped going forward (ain't inertia great?) and grazed the Bar Fly with my thigh as I exited the bike. The Garmin popped out and the Bar Fly snapped clean in two between the Garmin end and the handlebar clamp. Thankfully, my Garmin was tethered to the bar or it might not have survived without a scratch as it did. All I could do was pocket my Garmin, finish my run, and remove and toss the handlebar half of the Fly once back to my tools at the bottom. Spend a little more and go K-Edge.

Has taken a pounding...

Been running this for almost six months now. Very happy. It will loosen up a bit with hard MTB use, so just torque it down every few months.

The factory Garmin o-ring mount works okay. Although, after many dirty rides, the o-rings begin to exhibit some wear, stretch thin, and shift around when you play with the Garmin atop the stem. The great thing about the Bar Fly mount, is that your Garmin stays fixed once you torque down the allen screw, mounting the unit to your handlebars. Due to its plastic construction, carbon bars will not get marred or damaged from over-tightening. The design is simple, yet functional. The molded plastic part doesn't break the bank, and will last many years (probably outliving your bike). If not, there is a lifetime crash replacement guaranteed!! All you have to do is pay for shipping. How great is that?! I'm a happy camper!

I recently replaced my stem and bars, and my Edge 500 will no longer fit using the standard Garmin mount on my stem.

I do not want to mount the Garmin on my bars, and most of the other mounts for the Garmin put it out in front of the stem, which I do not like, so I am considering one of these. I was having trouble picturing what it would look like, so I found this pic. I hope it helps anyone else who might be having the same difficulty.

Big Papa, thanks for the image. I am about to buy a new garmin because mine got damaged last night when I crashed during a race. I was using a mount that put the computer in front of the bars and in a crash that is one of the things guaranteed to hit. My garmin popped off, shearing the tabs that make up it's retention system. Bye Bye Garmin. I will be purchasing one of these to go with a new 510.
