Has anyone seen/got a solid mount for this type of g.p.s?
The one that came with it pivots in the middle and is held together with one 6mm bolt! No good for racing! I cant flush mount it either due to lack of space!

Already tryed it and broke it!

The last one i had made in ally. Quite a simple job but it didnt have the "knurled" edges so the g.p.s would slowly fall forward!

Stick a couple of rubber washers made from innertube in there. It'll always have a wee bit of spring but it won't pivot.
