Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I run a K-Edge adjustable steer tube mount on my trail bike and I bought one of these Bar Flys to run on my DH bike as it has a direct mount stem and not much room to try to make a steer tube mount work. I love my Garmin and am a huge data geek. On my first ride with this mounted to my M9, I had a low speed OTB. My Bar Fly was set up so the Garmin was behind the bars, above the stem. I went out the front of the bike after the bike stopped going forward (ain't inertia great?) and grazed the Bar Fly with my thigh as I exited the bike. The Garmin popped out and the Bar Fly snapped clean in two between the Garmin end and the handlebar clamp. Thankfully, my Garmin was tethered to the bar or it might not have survived without a scratch as it did. All I could do was pocket my Garmin, finish my run, and remove and toss the handlebar half of the Fly once back to my tools at the bottom. Spend a little more and go K-Edge.
