Droid 2 Bike mount?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Droid 2 Bike mount?

So I posted this same question in the Electronics forum, but maybe this is a better place, cuz i didnt get any answers.

Is there a reliable phone mount for the droid 2 that could attatch to the stem or handlebars? I use mapmyride and i want to be able to keep my phone out of my pocket if possible. its getting kinda annoying bouncing around in there.
thanx

Your phone bounces in your pocket? I only ever put my iphone in my jersey pocket and I haven't had any issues.

This is looking like your best bet:

Just make sure you keep your phone inside a plastic bag while in your jersey to protect from sweat. - Friend's advice, his phone died from it

well, i just started cycling during last school year, so i dont have a jersey and a pair of bibs/shorts yet. i dont want anyone i know seeing me in tights when im not in the pool. so i just put my phone in my basketball short pockets, and it flops around a little. I guess a jersey would be the best solution. where can i get an inexpensive jersey? like under 30 if possible. just to see if i like it os if i dont, im not out too much money.

I just got a padded waterproof handlebar mount for my HTC Sensation on ebay - there were plenty to choose from....I'd suggest having a look there.
