    Computer postion

    I just got new bars I'm getting them set up and I'm wondering where people put their computers. I usually have mine on the bars but I'm thinking of mounting it on my stem. What do you think?

    on my road bike, i put the comp at the crest of the aero bars.

    otherwise I try for the stem. I used to ride with it on the handlebars, but i get more hand room with it on the stem and i can use both hands to play with it (instead of only my right).

    doesn't really matter.

    I have mine mounted on the stem. My bicycle is a cyclocross bike, so the extra brake handles tie up more space on the bar. I have gotten to like it located there though.

    I wish I had a mount for the stem, since I'm really all about symmetry, but since I'm using an Enduro 8, I don't really have any other options.

    you put it where you can see it and are most comfortable.

    I only have a mount for my bars...so I guess I'm used to that. The next comp I'm looking at has a stem mount though. I guess I really don't have a preference.

    well I had mine mounted to the bars & centered. But with my new bike, the bars are much smaller in diameter and I havent found something to use as a bushing yet. theres prob bout a 1/8-1/8" gap all around. was trying to find an older inner tube, but musta pitched those awhile ago before I found all the useful things to do with them.

    Depends on the computer. If its a Garmin, kind of long, then there's very little choice, the stem.

    Both



    (That pic was taken within a week of getting the Garmin. I've since ditched the small computer)
