Mobile Phone Bike Mounts – 511 Contra Costa

Mobile Phone Bike Mounts

A couple days ago we posted about nifty mobile phone apps for commuters and bike enthusiasts. GPS maps, speed and heart rate stats, music… all great and awesome, but how are you supposed to handle all of that while still using two hands to ride your bike? Here are a couple of mobile phone bike mounts that’ll solve your problems. Unfortunately, most of the bike mounts out there are still only compatible with the iPhone. Users with other phones might have to do a bit of manual modifications!
TIP: Be very careful on your first ride out with these mounts! Make sure everything has been attached and fitted properly, and even then, there’s no guarantee that your phone will be 100% protected from falling out and breaking. Just use your smarts and be careful!

  1. Why are all the example mounts listed as "Compatible with iPhone" when you can't even play ingress on an iPhone? (well, without violating the TOS). I'd expect to see generic, clamp style mounts and mounts for the Galaxy S3, S3, HTC One, Nexus 4, etc. Kinda weird to recommend iPhone mounts.
    Oh well.
