How to fix a broken mount on your Garmin Edge GPS

The GPS bike computers from Garmin have become hugely popular for cyclists tracking their mileage, routes, and other statistics. An all-too common problem, however, is when the little tabs on the mounting plate get broken due to a crash, a mishap on a bike rack, or something to that effect.

All is not lost, however, if this happens. Your $300+ accessory can be saved with a product called the Dog Ears GPS mounting plate. It's made of aluminum, so it's tough enough to take more bumps and bounces compared to the original Garmin mounting plate.

Tom in the Century Cycles store in Medina recently had to opportunity to try one of these out. With the help of Chris on the video camera and editing, we present to you their how-to guide for fixing the broken mount on your Garmin Edge GPS:

Thanks for coming to Fattyshack II!

Thanks to everyone who came to Peninsula for Fattyshack II on February 6, 2016! Although the weather didn't cooperate to provide us enough snow to ride on Brandywine Country Club, we had about 25 people who enjoyed a group fat bike ride on the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail and the Summit Metro Parks Bike & Hike Trail.

Thanks to Surly Bikes and Pearl Izumi for providing the awesome prizes for our raffle drawing!

We'll keep our fingers crossed so that we can return to ride the golf course for Fattyshack III in 2017.

Now in stock: Feedback Sports Omnium Portable Bicycle Trainer

Brand new from Feedback Sports, the Omnium Portable Bicycle Trainer is perfect for indoor training or pre-race warm-up, whether you're at home, at cycling classes, or traveling.
Your bicycle mounts via the front fork, so there's no need for a separate front wheel stabilizer block. The adjustable-height fork mount works with all of the major fork standards out there today: standard quick-release, 12mm thru-axle, 15mm thru-axle, and 15x110mm Boost thru-axle, and is upgrade-able to accommodate any future front axle standards.

The length is adjustable to fit almost any length of single-person bicycle. Your rear wheel rests on two durable aluminum resistance rollers that are greased and sealed for years of maintenance-free operation.

Best of all, the unit folds down compactly to fit in the included heavy canvas carrying case. It even fits in the overhead bin of airplanes!
The Feedback Sports Omnium Portable Bicycle Trainer is now in stock in all three Century Cycles stores!

ALERT: Fattyshack II Event Changes!

Century Cycles and Brandywine Country Club were looking forward to riding fat bikes on the golf course again, but it looks like the weather is not going to cooperate. We'll keep our fingers crossed for snow to bring Fattyshack back in 2017!

Instead, we'll do a fat bike group ride of about 16 miles on the Towpath Trail and Bike & Hike Trail (the same loop we did for the Global Fat Bike Day Ride in December). If you'd like to rent a fat bike for the group ride, call us at 330-657-2209 to make a reservation. The ride will start at 12:00pm (noon) and take about 2 hours.

Then, we'll have FREE fat bike demo rides on the Towpath Trail, starting from the store from 2:00-4:00pm.

Date: Saturday, February 6, 2016
Location: Century Cycles, 1621 Main Street, Peninsula, Ohio 44264
