Long Stem GPS Mount

If you have a gps with one of those belt clips similar to the cell phone ones, you can do this mounting in 15 minutes. It will be helpful to grind down the sides of the belt clip so that they fit between ridges on the stem for the bolts. Then use one zip tie to around the the fat tube portion of the stem. Another zip tie goes over the tube, then over the bars and then back around again. This ensures that it won't shift in place. You could add another ziptie going the opposite direction just to be sure.

Then find yourself a piece of foam rubber for cushion and a small bungee cord to hold everything in place and voila!

I was surfing around looking at different types of blogs like Blogspot, Wordpress or maybe Squarespace and trying to decide which is the best way to go. Wordpress blogs of course let you customize your layout to an amazing degree. I am curious how you decided on the theme you are using and what made you decide to go this direction. If you wouldn't mind taking a look at my youth motorcycle helmet site and giving me your opinion I would appreciate it. What do you think about the layout and colors? What about the wide sized theme?

Nice, this would definitely be more protected than a handlebar mount. Nice Mcgyver!
