Default iPhone Mount

Well I finally came up with a great iPhone mount setup.

The case is from Wahoofitness it for a mountain bike and the handle bar mount is from Adaptiv Technologies

http://www.adaptivtechnologies.com/gear/adaptiv-mounts

the case is waterproof and dust proof http://www.wahoofitness.com/Products...for-iPhone.asp

Then I used a direct wire in micro USB charger from eBay for 20$

I had it swiveled inside the bars but it was just kinda in your face so I swiveled it outside and its perfect.

Man its great!!!

Good looking mount.
Not trying to pick on you or any one.
Have we lost our riding fun. I don't have a i phone or gps and ride to see whats over the next hill or around that curve in the road.
I was so lost this spring on a cloudy day I did know east from west. With no sun a rider can get turned around. It turns out I was in another state. I was having a great time and had to spend a night on the road. Its a shame there is no excitement with all these gadgets. I do have a compass in the bags now just in case.

I agree 100%, dont take the adventure out of the ride. My issue is I do get to ride for work, during work, . And its great! But when I ride for fun, the phone is always off so I can leave the cage and work behind. Not to mention usually the areas I pleasure ride in there is no cell service

I have my phone mounted for one reason, the GPS. I live in the sticks and 99% of the time am riding local so have no need for phone or GPS and it stays in the bag. However, if I have the need to go to the city and on the beltway, I want my GPS as I'm not familiar enough with the areas due to not going very often. When I do go, I don't have time to get lost and figure it out.

I think the fun is the challenge of mounting the phone. Seeing how it can be done. After that its off to something else. Nice job.

I used a similiar mount that they use for mountain bikes. I got it at TJ Maxx for $5. It works great for my music, but I couldn't see the screnn for sh**. Tried to use the navigation in the mtns of Helen at the SE Victory rally and got lost as sh**. Best day of riding in a long time. Wife says where are we? I said who cares!

LOL Sorry Okie, maybe the batteries dont hold a charge as good as they should *WINK* WINK* Riding should be therapy to shut out the world and chatter in it.

I use the Sena and it works great with music from the iPhone. I have the Sena Victory Dongle I just havent gotten around to installing it yet. I went for it once and got lost in the instructions so I bailed as it was a riding day.
