A thought just struck me (one of the few and far between smiley2.gif).

 

 

 

Brighter Lights is now casting premoulded plastic parts for fork lockouts etc, perhaps he can make a Uitenhage version of Garmin's notorious plastic clip.

You're lucky ... I was quoted R250 from another shop. I'm still looking for a cheaper one (or two or three). Hope some pop up on the hub again - there have been some here before.

lets see...

 

4x 305 units = 8 Bike mounts

Less 4 broken

Less 3 currently on bikes

= one spare (not for sale, just in case)

 

they beak easily and all in the same place!

looks like the edge 500's will be much better.

The ones from mallot jaune seem stronger than the standard ones that come with the garmin, i bought and fitted them to my bikes last year and had none broken yet.
