My shifter cable hits my k-edge front mount...Annoying clicking whole ride..

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

The right shifter cable rests on my Garmin thats sitting on the k-edge front mount. As I ride, it rattles and hits it back and forth making a ton of noise.

Whats a good solution on fixing this. I have some in mind but they might not be aas crafty as some of you bf.net masters.

Suggestions, go!
