Bicycle Phone Holder

My one just popped through the post this morning, and I have to say I highly recommend it!

Looks ok.
I have this one. It sort of keeps the phone dry if I'm caught in the rain. Notice I said "sort of".

A back pocket is more secure.

So is a backpack, and keeps the phone dry.

I just use one of those leather phone holders that go on your belt. If I know I am expecting a call I clip it to a derailler or brake cable. If I am on tour, it goes in my handlebar bag. Otherwise my jersey pocket.

That's my choice. I quite often clip it to the back of the handle bar bag. I also run Pandora and can listen to music on the ride

Since I use a small "flip phone" it fits in my pocket nicely. Besides, I don't talk on a damn cellphone when I drive or ride.

Is the basic idea that it takes too long to get it out of your pocket and answer it (that is, you miss calls)?

I ride with a bluetooth headset and keep my phones safely in a pannier. (I commute year-round in Seattle rain, have to carry two phones, work and personal -- keeping a phone in a jersey pocket is an invitation to a dead phone.)

Rad! That would look great next to my Starbucks coffee cup holder on my handlebars!

Why would anyone want to talk on the phone while cycling? One of the reasons I ride is to get away from phones, computers, etc. etc. The last thing I want to do is to have calls interupt my ride.

If I carry a cell phone, it is in my handlebar bag, it is turned off, and it is only used for emergency purposes.

When your phone is on your bike. It's not a phone, but a GPS equipped cycle computer

Be careful, my friend's phone fell out of his holder. Make sure it is secure.

I tried a bluetooth ear piece (use one while driving) but gave up on it. It blocked too much hearing for me.

I normally don't answer the phone while riding, unless I am on call and I recognize the number as an emergency call. I have voicemail for a reason.

Yep, that's the idea! If I want to talk to anyone while I drive or ride I'll pull off the road and call them! I carry a phone for my use not to get bothered by someone else.

As I see it way , way to many people have been turned into phone slaves by the stinking rude cell phone.

I strapped my flip phone to my bars with an O-ring used for a Sigma bike computer. Worked great!
