Cycling Weekly Verdict

A great little mount which is lightweight and easy to fit. The over-the-stem position isn't for everyone but it is versatile, taking the bar shape and diameter out of the equation as well as stem length. Currently, this is a Garmin-only item, but Wahoo compatibility is promised in the future.

The F3 FormMount OTS computer mount arrived with me alongside the brand's key road offering: the F3 FormMount. The latter is designed to use the stem faceplate bolts to offer a tidy solution for mounting computers, lights and cameras. However, in many cases, bikes I'm testing use an integrated stem/bar combo, so the faceplate-mounted FormMount has been limited in its use case, whilst the OTS has become my go-to.
