In the four years since Tate Labs created it, the Bar Fly mount has morphed into ever more versatile shapes, expanding into brands and models beyond its original Garmin-exclusive capability to include players like Joule and Cateye. The Bar Fly 2.0 SLi BAM E-Box Bundle represents the shorter, squatter relative of the original Bar Fly, designed to mount slimmer models than the hyper-intelligent miniature tablets its sibling was made for.
This version includes the BAM action camera mount, a discreet fin that attaches to the mount to allow you to take ride footage without dealing with helmet mounts. The gear your mounting is delicate, so you want it to be secure, but you also don't want to sacrifice aerodynamics in the name of gadget protection. Tate Labs assures us that the entire system was put through wind tunnel testing to make sure that strength doesn't come at the expense of aerodynamic efficiency.

Cleaner electronic shifting setup
This Barfly has provisions to mount either your Shimano Di2 front A junction or the Campagnolo interface under it, which cleans up your installation a bunch. The mount, however, is too short to mount a 520 or 820 because of the button locations. It might not work for a 1000 either.
