Phone (iPhone) mount

Hey all,

Looking to mount my iPhone on my bars / stem somewhere so that I don't have to replace my broken cyclocomputer - I'd rather just use an app on my phone, plus it's handy to be able to see...

Noted!

Ordered a new (cheap) fork for my IRO yesterday... I want to mount a brake on it as my commute kinda scares me with the big downhills and potential for ice/snow fun and no brake. Yay!

If you think 20mph with a 42:18 ratio is uncomfortable then you were right. You can't spin. 110rpm should not be a hardship, ride your bike more and use a lower gear to develop your spin. Your normal...

I use the regular ones that the stores sell or some my Mum has brought from the UK. I guess for an Xmas gift you'd probably want something that isn't all "Sobey's: Eat Fresh" or whatever... Great...

I have to lock up outside at my new place, but fortunately they have a rack right outside the main entrance which is also manned by security.
