    Center mounted computer

    Are there any computers out there that are center mounted (mounted directly over the stem like the ciclomaster computers in the 90s)?

    The Sigma I used to have could mount at 90 degrees sideways so you could mount it to the stem.

    It would be pretty easy to make a little mount to give a 90 degree twist. If I get time tomorrow I'll throw something together and post it on Thingiverse.

    Knog's NERDs have the most clever and versatile mounting system, in that the silicone case/strap combo holds a separate computer piece, and so depending on bar or stem mounting, all you have to do is pop out the computer, reorient it in the case, and put it back on. Mounting is by strap and hook, so no tools required.

    thanks guys, glad to see there are more options. i also found the quadlock mount system for when i want to mount my phone to my stem for location tracking/reporting.

    here's a pic of the ciclomaster i had (this was posted on retrobike). notice the handlebar mount on both sides of the stem; this was very convenient during racing. when the course switched to the alpine, i simply rotated the computer forward so i wouldn't have to look at it (looking at a computer during climbing distracted/discouraged me). man i miss this kind of mount. stem mounts are here to stay i guess.

    Oh, I get what you're looking for now...

    Aside from offset bar mounts like Barfly and K-Edge for Garmin GPS units, I don't know of any ciclocomputer that has a mount that allows in-line mounting with the centerline of the stem.

    There are, however, handlebar extenders that allow that kind of centerline mounting, e.g. FSA's Control Center.

    All current Cateye computers that I know of can mount on the stem or handlebar, they designed their mounts to be fastened in either direction. I'm using their Stealth 50 GPS model.
