WishBone: Light and Secure
Wishbone is a lightweight handlebar forward mount for your
Garmin Edge 500, 200 and 800. A forward
mount positions your Garmin’s display within the critical “normal forward field
of view” and reduces the distraction of rotating your head down to see your ride
Wishbone is the lightest and most
secure of the ogee handlebar mounts at 12 grams and is suitable for mountain or
road bike use. The mount is secured via
two arms with two 3m flathead screws and nuts.
If used with the optional # 16 o-rings inserts, it can be repositioned
with one hand and without tools.
WishBone fits all
31.8 mm diameter handlebars.
Small Parts Not Included
You will need to purchase separately, two 3m x 12mm or 3m x 14mm flat head stainless steel screws and nuts, along with two #16 o-rings. All hardware is specified in standard sizes and available at most local hardware stores.
Assembly of Small Parts
Once you receive the WishBone printed part it is important
to inspect all attachment features on the part.
You may want to use a toothpick to clear out any residual “build material”
(which will look like dust) that might have made it past the Shapeways technicians. Because of the precision and small size of
the attachment features, it is necessary that all surfaces be clear of unwanted
material for proper function of the part.
Important: Before you insert the nuts into the part, as illustrated in Image A1 and A2, you may need to clear out any loose or packed-in build material from the cavity that captures the nut.This can be done with a toothpick.Once inserted into capture feature the nut should
align with the screw hole on either side. If the nut and screw holes are not aligned you can remove the nut (with
a toothpick) and inspect the feature for any loose debris that might be
interfering with proper alignment.
Also inspect the quarter turn mount feature (where the
Garmin locks on) for any residual build material. Typically this is not a problem, but there
may be unwanted material packed-in around the locating features (protrusions left
and right), accessible from opposite the mounting side (see Image B1).
