I am looking to mount my Garmin to the top tube because I am not to keen on having it stick on the handlebar and my stem is too short.

I found the following and it it looks awesome ...

... unfortunately it is currently out of stock and eventually it will ship from the UK.

Does anyone know of similar mounts? I scoured eBay but was only able to find the adhesive male part.

I'd appreciate it if anyone has any leads, otherwise I will try to sugru one of these to my toptube.

Thanks!

I was able (through google) to find an STL file of the male part and printed a couple of copies to use to glue to the back of phone cases. If you have access to a 3-d printer you may be able to find a file with the female part to print. Of course, you'd have to attach it to the bike somehow but that shouldn't be too hard.

This part https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2540442 looks like it is made to strap on with velcro or nylon strapping.

Getting flat adhesive mounting plates to stick to curved tubes is a bit dicey

as far as the adhesive goes, get a roll of the foam core 3M VHB tape. I think it's the same stuff that go-pro uses on their adhesive mounts. the foam core will help somewhat with curved surfaces. If you're 3d printing a mount anyway, just make it match the frame tube shape.

Thanks all! Looks like the models from thingiverse can be ordered on demand so i'll have a look around that site.
