VeloClub is CyclingTips’ membership program which brings us closer to our members, and connects likeminded cycling enthusiasts.
We’re extremely excited to be featuring local Melbourne brand Fetha Custom Component’s latest product, a 3D-printed titanium Garmin mount, in the CyclingTips Emporium.
We’ve been working with Zimbabwean-born engineer Jamie Riedy of Fetha for a while now, showcasing his range of elegant solutions for mounting your Garmin to almost any handlebar/stem setup. They’re one of the cleanest setups we’ve seen and so when Jamie came to us and said he had an idea to make them even better we were all ears.
Introducing the first (that we know of) 3D Printed Titanium Garmin Mount, proudly designed and developed in Melbourne. To make this project a reality, Jamie collaborated with Australian university, RMIT, allowing him access to world-leading technology and an extremely talented engineering student, Ben (now working ongoing with Jamie).
We’re amazed at the thought that’s gone into these mounts and how light and robust they are. To fully explain the design and development process we spoke to Jamie, Ben and David from RMIT and put together the short video above. Warning: video contains a high degree of tech.
The aim of all the Fetha mounts is to be as inconspicuous as possible when your Garmin unit is in position. To ensure the exact fit, each mount is custom made to suit your particular stem and Garmin.
