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

Recommend Iphone mount for bike

I had started a thread about a month ago asking if anyone actually used the mounts for their bike. I was surprised by the number that did.

Rather than dredge up the old thread, I just wanted a recommendation. When I search on Amazon, I am overwhelmed by the number of choices. Some of the reviews state that X product doesn't fit road bikes or Y product is flimsy. Therefore, I am turning to bikeforums.net for advice.

I have a Motobecane road bike and an Iphone 4. Can you suggest a good mount for my Iphone por favor?

I was just about to start a thread about this. I was searching the internet for a good iPhone mount earlier today and came up with these:
Arkon Handlebar Mount for Most Smartphones
GoRide iPhone bike mount

and this list article on CNet.

I don't know about you but I have the 3GS and some of these only work with the 3GS, but I'm hesitant to use these although they have some pretty good reviews, there are some horror stories about the phone falling off at 30 mph and getting destroyed.

I'm a fan of RAM mounts. They are great -have one for an older 3G/3Gs model. RAM is a respected company in mounts for handlebars even for off-road motorcycle use which tend to be even more abusive than bicycles. The RAM 3G/3Gs mount that I had fit my Moto Droid even after I got rid of the iPuke.

Which model would you recommend?

This is the one I have. But it doesn't fit the 4. If I had the 4 I'd buy the RAM iPhone 4 version here. I like it. I've got my phone holder tucked away down deep on a section of bar that is part of my decalleur rack.
