This really shouldn't be so difficult, but--- I've got a Garmin VIRB XE that I want to mount to a cage tube, 1.5" diameter. I ordered the Garmin bike/large tube mount that was listed as fitting up to 1.5" tube. In reality the max size it will fit is about 1.43". Further searching has not made anything clearer. I'm certain someone has one of these cameras mounted in their car to a 1.5" tube. What mount do I need to get ?!? Thanks in advance!

I used the GoPro mount. https://www.amazon.com/GoPro-GRBM30-Rol ... lbar+mount

You can get copies of it for under $10.

Appreciate the tip Jason. Wasn't sure if there was interchangeability, found one like you said for about 7 bucks.

I have the same mount for the cage. Works great!
