Phone Holder/Mount for Phone in already Living in Shock/Rubberized Case

I was thinking it would be an easy search, but of course it was not. Can anyone suggest a solid handlebar mount / holder for my iphone that will be staying in its rubberized shock proof case? I own and love my Topeak Ride Case, but it's a bit inconvenient in terms of actually using the phone and is only used for planned long excursions with possible weather changes.

Seeking one for everyday use where I simply stick the phone in there, as is....

Preferably made of aluminum with no rubber securing straps or fasteners that will deteriorate and break with continual use.

Thanks in advance!

This is what I use on my bike and they have it for the iPhone and Samsung. It comes with a rubber cover to protect against rain. Love it.

Thx. That looks nice, but it appears to be a case in & of itself, with its smart attaching ramp on the back. I need a mount where I simply place my phone, already in a rubberized case onto the mount. It is 1/2" thick and most aluminum clamp type mounts can not accommodate this thickness...

Search for [universal mounts]. Some grip the phone with a silicone harness (ex), others use a glued universal adapter (ex) to fit a quarter-turn handlebar mount. (I do not use such system so can't vouch for their reliability. I own a Quadlock bundle which works well, so I assume that their universal adapter is a reasonable solution, although it'll add a rather large hump on the back. Depending on your circumstances, you may want to purchase a small bumper for everyday use and switch to you case during outdoor activities)

I have the Ram X grip with handlebar mount that I use all the time and not just for my Iphone, but also other gadgets on occasion. I also have the dedicated Ram Iphone cradle that I never use because I keep my phone in a protective case so it doesn't fit in the cradle. I got the cradle before I found the case and since the case protects it from everything except theft, I don't take it out of the case. I also have a Ram cradle for my GPS and I put them on opposite sides of the head post. It looks cluttered with the light up there too, but hey, I like my gadgets. I've never had anything come out of the X grip even on rough trails. When I patrolled in the forest I used that mount for my service radio and that's why I got one when I retired.

I'm kinda in the same boat, I have an iPhone X and a Trek with a Blendr stem mount, was hoping I could find something to work with my existing rubberized phone case and the Trek mount. I really don't want a mount that will tilt on a 10 mile ride from road shock that's why I think something that snaps into the Blendr mount would be great. I can't post pix of the mount yet (noobie), but its pretty simple, slide and lock. I do like the quarter-turn bayonet style mounts.
