I recently purchased a Garmin Edge 500 Cycling GPS and wanted an “out-front” mount.  Garmin’s own out-front mount mount was an incredible $40; for just a piece of plastic.  Good thing for free enterprise and other vendors.  SRAM makes one called the QuickView Computer Mount 31.8.  This is a much cheaper option at only $17 – shipped.  It works great, as you can watch in various YouTube videos.  The only problem with the SRAM piece of plastic is that it uses a Torx® T25 screw instead of a standard hex screw.  I was worried that out on the road, the mount would come loose from the tapered part of my handle bars and become useless.  Since it uses that T25 screw, I would have no way of tightening it out on the road as a T25 bit isn’t what I usually carry.  I actually have the Topeak Hexus II Multi-Tool and it doesn’t come with Torx® bits.  Reviews online universally pan this Torx® screw…  I wanted to replace this useless Torx® screw with something more conventional.  Fortunately for me, my local Ace Hardware had the exact part I needed!

Also, some footage of the peloton and race caravan coming through downtown Santa Rosa before heading out to the coast (coming back from Windsor) on YouTube.

I attended the 2011 Levi’s Gran Fondo and festival in Santa Rosa, California today.  It was amazing with 7,500 riders converging on Stony Point Road and West College Avenue for an 8:00AM mass start.  Also in attendance, besides Levi Leipheimer included Patrick Dempsey, Scott Nydam, Ethan Suplee, Odessa Gunn, and many more!

Check out the video clip montage below (1080p):

And check out some photos here.

Two videos I produced from the Levi Leipheimer’s King Ridge Gran Fondo 2010 featuring Patrick Dempsey!

This ride took place on October 9, 2010 in Santa Rosa, California.

I recorded a short video of the start of Levi Leipheimer’s King Ridge Gran Fondo start and morning staging.

Levi just retweeted it!
