Tate Labs debuts new Garmin, Cat Eye mounts

Lower-profile Bar Fly 2.0 offers two positions for all Garmin Edge units

Tate Labs has a new, lower-profile Bar Fly 2.0 Garmin mount that works with all the new and existing Garmin cycling computers. The California company also released a Bar Fly for Cat Eye, which works with all that company's computers, including the new Stealth 50 GPS.

The Bar Fly 2.0 puts the top of Garmin computers flush with the stem (lower than the current Bar Fly), but it also allows you to set both a smaller Garmin or a larger Garmin close to the stem without having to adjust the mount itself, thanks to a two-slot system.

Di2 compatibility? Check

The Bar Fly 2.0 is also compatible with Shimano's Di2 and Campagnolo's EPS electronic systems, both of which have a junction box that typically mounts under the stem.

Both Bar Fly mounts attach with a single bolt.

The $25 (£16) Bar Fly 2.0 unit is made in the US, and will be available by the end of the month.

The Bar Fly for Cat Eye is $20 (£13) and is available now.
