Tate Labs the bike computer mount company, hasn’t rested on its laurels this past year, and from feedback of their Bar Fly 1.0 and 1.1 models, they designed the impressive new Bar Fly 2.0. The made in the USA 2.0 mount, which is meant for the Garmin Edge bike computers, has been lowered to be more inline with the stem, and has dual position slots for more flexibility, and the bottom can be integrated with the Shimano Di2 and Campagnolo EPS modules. The 2.0 comes in Classic Black, Blue, White, and Hi-Viz Yellow, weighs 22 grams, retails for $24.99 and comes with their “Buy one you’re done” lifetime warranty and crash replacement policy.
The simple one bolt design of the clamp makes it easy to take on and off, so you can easily swap it between bikes. The mount is made of Delrin plastic, so the clamp section is safe for carbon bars, and of utmost importance, the main computer interface is friendly to the plastic wings on the back of the Edge units. Even with the one bolt setup and full plastic body, the mount offered a secure and stable platform for the Edge computers.
Small and large format comparison
The two-position slot makes both the smaller format Edge 200 and 500, and larger format Edge 510, 800 and 810 fit closer to the stem. In addition, the new model also has a lower mounting position, so it drops it down inline with the stem.
I have been testing the 2.0 on various bikes, handlebars and stems, and it’s easy to install the one bolt clamp, just undo the bolt, bend open the clamp, and pop it over the bars and align, and torque it down. I installed my Garmin Edge 800 in the upper slot position, and the interface gave a nice crisp click into its lock. The Edge never popped out of position, unless I somehow hit hard myself, otherwise it was stable as a rock, offering an excellent viewpoint for usage.
Not much to bitch about other than it was offset when using with stems that have a wide face plate, so that the computer wouldn’t be perfectly centered.
The Tate Labs Bar Fly 2.0 is a superb mount for the Garmin Edge GPS computers, offering an easy to use one bolt clamp, two-position interface for small and large-format Edge computers, and a lowered location to be more inline with the stem. It utilizes Derlin plastic construction, which is friendly to handlebars and the rear Edge computer wings. The decent $24.99 price and no question asked replacement policy, make for a great product.
