ASK RIDE…Where can I buy a road bike mount for my iphone 3 and which one would you suggest to be the best?

Where can I buy a road bike mount for my  iphone 3 in Australia (preferably Melbourne) and which one would you suggest to be the best? ie shockproof, waterproof

Cheers Paul

Paul,

After a bit of searching it seems as though the BioLogic iPhone Mount is the best option. It has a 360 degree pivot allowing you to set your iPhone display as you wish, has a waterproof and shock resistant case, and has openings for the camera, headphones and charge cable.

You can view the product through Dahon’s website here:

We found these for sale at St Kilda Cycles  – http://ht.ly/3vTGf

I would, however, offer this advice. A computer can be a distraction when riding. I have seen many cyclists too busy looking at their numbers to notice the red light in front of them or the car pulling out from the kerb (I suspect the iPhone would be worse). As for protecting the phone…well, I would suggest the safest place is at home if you are really worried about it. You can pick up a cheap ‘training phone’ for $30 and not have to worry about the rain, sweat or potential damage from a crash. But of course, all of this is up to you.

Hope this helps. John
