Mounting a Garmin Edge 130 for Charging
As I know that Bacchettas are popular for long-distance/time riding, I thought I'd post this on the forum. I have a Garmin Edge 130, and occasionally have trouble with the battery life lasting as long as my ride does (particularly with the newly-developed lousy life in cold weather bug :( ). I have a sufficient external battery to use with it - the problem that I have run into is finding a place to mount the computer so that a) I can charge it (i.e. a position where the charger slot is accessible by a cord), and b) it is viewable/usable while charging - not in my pocket or so far away that I can't readily see it. Generally, I have it mounted on my Corsa with the factory mount just above the shifter/grip for my right hand, which is perfect for normal use, but lousy for charging as the charging slot is blocked by the handlebar.
I have looked into using alternate (right-angle) cables, and considered purchasing a standard aero mount and just mounting it straight up on the front of the handlebar, but I thought before spending any money I'd see if anyone else had a similar problem and had already defeated it.
Thanks in advance,
