Newton 31.7 stem and computer mount problemmike mcmahon

I have a vague recollection of this topic having been covered, but I couldn't track it down in archives. Does anyone have suggestions on mounting a computer on a 31.7 mm handlebar? I tried Sigma and the rubber band wouldn't stretch far enough. I tried Cateye and the bracket spread too far to allow the bolt to span the gap between the two ends. I also tried to zip-tie the two ends of the Catey bracket, but that caused the mount to bend, making removal of the computer impossible. Any suggestions?

I got frustrated and ended up stretching the snot out of the rubber band on the Sigma computer and got it to work. It's not the perfect fit, but it's sticking so far.
