Where do you mount your Garmin with Aero Bars?

I'm thinking of adding on clip-on aero bars and starting to train for a tri. It seems as if the bars clip on where my Garmin currently is mounted, leaving only the stem for mounting - which is not a place I prefer.

Where are you all mounting your cycle computers?

Powertap display on the left aerobar, Edge 305 on the right. I often don't use the Edge in workouts in familiar or flat terrain, and I usually don't use it in Sprint and Olympic races.

on my Soloist I have a pair of Easton Aeroforce Carbon clip-ons, and some VisionTech on the Lucero. The computer mounts for each are just in front of the handlebar or basebar (i.e. back towards the stem), allowing me to mount an Aerodrink bottle on the aerobars as well, just in front of the mounts.

Pics? I've got similar mounting issues using my new Syntace clip-ons on my touring bike (I need those extra hand positions, dang it!)...I know this is not a triathlon specific post, but I'm interested regardless.

Thanks

OK; I'll dig out the camera and post a few.

I don't have any pics (aero bars no longer on my bike) but I had the Syntace C2's and got the computer mount, which was a short piece that went kind of in between the bars parallel to the handlebars. It was meant to mount a bike computer and worked nicely for the Garmin. Put it right where you wanted to view it, but far enough forward that your head didn't block it's view of the sky.

Thank you. So it sits sort of under your forearm but a tad towrd the middle? You can see it all right?

Interesting.

Yes;since my forearms are along the outside edges of the aerobars, they don't obscure either device. The aero-drink bottle also doesn't block the Edge's view of the GPS satellites. It took a bit of fiddling to finally arrive at this arrangement. Ideally I'd like to put a dual-chamber / dual-straw PodiumQuest drink system up front so I can have access to both plain water and energy drink without leaving the aero position but that's going to take more fiddling.

Mine's on the stem. It's not ideal, but I just don't watch it as often, and the satellites can still reach it. I also don't use it for races, just for training.
