Promount Billet offers CNCed Garmin and GoPro mounts

Aluminium mounts from Australia are available worldwide

Australian brand Promount Billet (PMB) is offering billet aluminium mounts for Garmin Edge computers and GoPro cameras.

We’ve shown you loads of alternative Garmin mounts over the past couple of years, but we’ve not featured PMB options before.

“All of PMB’s mounts start as a solid piece of aluminium, they are then precision CNC machined into the finished shape,” says the manufacturer. “It is through this manufacturing process the mounts get their strength.”

This is the PMB Enduro Garmin Mount that replaces your headset top cap. It weighs just 11g, and bear in mind that you’ll be ditching your original top cap too, so the net gain is virtually nothing. The bit the computer pushes into is a machined acetal insert.

It’ll take a Garmin Edge 500, 510, 800 or 810, as well as a Forerunner with a Garmin quick release kit. It’s priced at AU$39.95 (about £22 at today’s exchange rate).

The only real negative we can see is that it might position your computer too far back on the bike. If that’s an issue, PMB do a Stem Mount (AU$44.95, about £25).

This one is designed to fit a bike with a stem length greater than 80mm and angle of 6° or less.

There’s also an out-front Aero Mount (above and main pic, AU$54.95, about £30) that’ll fit any bike with a 31.8mm-diameter handlebar.

If you’re after a GoPro mount, PMB offer handlebar, out-front, under-seat and frame options ranging in price from AU$39.95 to AU$44.95 (about £22 to £25). These all suit the GoPro Hero, Hero2, Hero3 and Hero3+ cameras.

PMB offer a lifetime replacement warranty on all aluminium parts covering manufacturing and material defects, and charge a flat rate of AU$20 (about £11) for worldwide postage.

Interesting stuff.

Is the actual mount metal (the bit the Garmin clips in to)?

Reason I ask is that I've tried the Garmin one, plus Sram, K Edge and Superstar versions. The metal mount K Edge is a lovely bit of kit but it does rip up the back of the Garmin. (hence why it's no longer on any of my bikes)

More than happy to describe pros and cons of the others if anyone is looking for one BTW.

That third image has...unfortunate positioning of the text. My eyes just can't read that as 'OUNT'.

Never had a problem with the first gen k-edge tearing up
the back of my edge 800 .... and the later versions have a
plastic insert which is even better Smile
Like the top cap version - should work quite well on the mtb.

still on the 3rd switch-back of Bwlch !

K-Edge just switched to using a plastic insert so as to avoid the damage to the Garmin, as recounted by Super Domestique

Best out front mount in my opinion is the Tate Labs Barfly 2.0. Even has a crash warranty on it so you'll only ever have to buy once. I have 2 of them. Black and yellow.

Yes I spotted that. It did make me think I wasn't the only one. Especially if, like me, you swap it around different bikes a fair bit.

Minor irritation, but I'd like an out-front mount that mounted on the LH side of the bar and put the Garmin in front of the stem.

The reason for this is that I want to mount my front light on the RH side so the beam can't be "blocked" by the Garmin .

If I found one I'd buy one. Anyone know of any?
