need to mount my iPhone 6S w/case on handlebar-need recommendation
 
Hey guys,

I need to mount my iPhone 6S with case on my handlebar. What are some quality mounting solutions?
Thanks!

Check out the quad lock...I'm using it and really like it!

Unfortunately the Quad Lock requires me to use their case and not my own. I use an iPro Lens case which allows me to attach lenses to the case. I really don't want to replace the really tight fitting case every time I go biking.

Looks like you might have to get creative. Maybe use another manufacturer's mount and use the threaded mount on the side of the iPro case to secure the case to the other mount.

Lifeproof has a stick-on mount for the back of their cases and a handlebar mount the is compatible with the stick on mount. You may or may not be comfortable with that set up. There is a video on the Lifeproof website of a road bike using the system with no issues. Check out the Lifeproof site for ideas.

I personally did not trust the adhesive mount so I used some Lifeproof products to build my own Iphone 6 mount. I already had the original Lifeproof 4s handlebar mount and my Iphone 6 is in a Lifeproof case. I purchased an Iphone 6 belt clip mount on sale then took the 4s handlebar mount apart, modified it, and fastened it to the back of the 6 belt clip mount. I then used a single #6 sheet metal screw to keep the two parts from pivoting. If you have used a Lifeproof belt clip you will understand the reason for the screw. It worked so well I made another one for my wife's bike !

There are two benefits to the mount. I can use my bike-apps, and I know where my phone is when I am riding !

Check out the bike mount cases at Alt Gear They have some nice handlebar mounted cases that will work with the iPhone 6 (with or without a case). I have been using their Zixtro Flash mount with my iPhone 5c with a third party case on it and it works just fine.

I use this. Actually, I use two of these; one for my 5s, and one for my auxiliary power supply.

They are very secure and being rubber, they absorb a lot of road shock. I got them at Academy Sports. About $18 each.

^^This is probably your best bet if you want to use the case you already have. My mother has one of these and it seems to work just fine. It would not work too well for me with a short stem on most of my bikes with wide handlebars.

I use a Paul Comp Stem Cap with a Lifeproof bike mount attached.

I have this on both of my bikes. Works great.

Not if you use the stick on universal adaptor mating piece to your case. Done that before, works great. Quad lock is the best bike mount out there.

I use this, which allows me to use my existing case. No problems so far, but I've only had it a couple months.
