iphone bike mount. Ideas?
I am trying to brainstorm a way to mount my iphone to my handlebars. It would need to be something small and compact, but also allow the iphone to swivel between portrait and landscape.
Now before you go saying "why would you mount an expensive camera to your bike" the idea for me is stictly for indoor training.
Where I have my trainer setup I don't have a TV. I also could setup a table and my laptop, but I would have to dismantle it every time since it would block the patch to the washer and dryer.
I have digitized all my videos, including bike training to iphone format. So it got me thinking that the iphone mounted to my bike would be a great compact video setup. The added advantage is that it would also work when travelling so I could hook it to an exercise bike.
I have found a few bike mounts, but most don't look like they swivel. I also think a small arm to get the iphone higher would make for easier viewing. I am just stumped as to what things I could use. I figured with the innovative mounts I have seen people here create for various items someone might have some ideas to get me spurred into action.
