Got a hand-me-down Garmin Edge 500 from my wife when we upgraded her to the Edge 520. I like out-front mounts for my computers, makes it a little easier to glance down and see it, but I've also been discovering that isn't the best idea for a MTB. Trying to clear a technical section, I stuffed the front wheel and went OTB. Picked up the bike, and discovered the Garmin laying on the ground. Picked that up and threw it in my jersey. Later discovered the mounting ears were both sheared clear off. Damn. Searched for a Garmin mount only to find out my tensionmeter buddy had posted one. Cool! Didn't need the extra wide bit at the bottom so I sunk the part into the print bed until it was just the mount itself, printed that out and super-glued it on. Photo shows it in my bench vise (being held by my print of vise jaws giving the super glue time to do its thing. Mounted up nicely on the bars, will give it a good test tomorrow.
Thanks for sharing this design!

Printed at 0.2mm at 250C to make sure layer adhesion was optimal. Realized after the fact that I could have sunk the part in the print bed until I didn't need to print supports for the ears, I could have just printed that part and glued it on and added about 2mm less to the new height of the Garmin. Oh well. If this doesn't hold so well, then I think I'll probably do that and add a pair of small screws tapped into the back of the Garmin itself.
