Garmin Varia saddle mount

I use Topeak saddle bags and these block a Varia mounted on the seat post. After a lot of time looking for a solution I found the Varia compatible clamps that are designed to attach to the saddle rails. Others have bolted these to the end of the Topeak saddle bag and then attached a Varia.

I tried 4 different versions and some were too large and another from Tucson could not be tightened and keep the Varia from quickly floppying down during a ride. I eventually found the Fanasch mounts for the Varia that are sold on Alibaba for $11.82 with free shipping and no sales tax. The bracket is 65mm wide and so a good fit for most seat rails and also for use with a saddle bag to be able to mount a Varia and adjust the angle.

There's a fairly long-winded discussion of different attacks (including mine) that others have made on the "Varia on saddlebag" here: https://www.bikeforums.net/electroni...addlebags.html
