Jibers, no hole in the crown that I can see!  ???

Fear not, I had the same dilemma on BJ the Fixie.  I solved the problem with ONE OF THESE.  Works very well  :thumbsup:

What it looks like in real life...


Fabulous! looks just the job so thanks for that.
Only thing is that it will get in the way of my Wahoooooooooo out front mount, but I see that you have some clever solution to that, too. So, what else do I need to buy?  :thumbsup:

There is also a mount that hangs below the bars - one of our household bikes has this with an IQ-X

Now that is a dangerous question to ask in a cycling forum!  ;D
Enjoying a quiet year

My Wahoo is mounted on the stem cap like this...



Using ONE OF THESE.

My Elemnt Roam came with a bar mount so you could mount it thus (yes I know the picture shows a Garmin but the effect is the same)...



I prefer the bar mount as mounting the Wahoooooooo on the stem cap makes it a little bit too far back so you have to look down further but this is a minor point.

That's very neat, which bracket is it?

Great, that looks goo, too - thank you for that.

True!
Thanks for the pics, OD and yes, I like the one jibers has too.

I can't remember the name of the bracket now, I think I've posted it before on YACF a few times... I'll see if I can find the details.  It's a headset spacer replacement job - works well, I was worried it would not carry the weight and snap but it's been fine with the IQX on it.

Right I think it was this: https://www.sjscycles.co.uk/lighting-spares/additive-spacer-one-light-holder/

Though I have just seen this which might be worth a look

I recon you could machine something up that suits in a lunch break :)

Pretty sure that's the one I posted the link to - but for Dave's bike it is hanging from the handlebar (damn Bob Jackson frame with no fixing hole on the fork crown)

Thanks, I like the spacer one. And I am too lazy these days to work through lunch breaks for stuff I can buy unless its silly money and very easy to make.  :hand:

You are right, I missed that.

I like that a lot, very neat! 

Nick if you manage to machine something similar can I have one too?
I might put this down as a long term project and if I ever get around to doing it, I'll make your one first!
