Unusual mounting system

Posted26 November 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
Bought this for an iPhone 4. Turns out it is a really snug fit with the iPhone ensconced in a thick casing. An iPhone 5 would fit without a casing. And the plug will not fit if you wanted to run a charging cable into the housing. For that sort of application, the Minoura holder works better. However, this holder has the advantage of being waterproof while the Minoura requires a ziplock bag for waterproofing.
And if you're hoping to transfer the holder from one bicycle to another in a hurry, this is not the product to get. The clamping system works well, but it is semi-permanent. It relies on a band of stainless steel that you have to bend over a collar. It is likely that you can only bend it several times before it snaps.
For these reasons, 4 stars instead of 5. Otherwise a well made product.

Yes, finally!

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight
Suits my Galaxy S2 perfectly. It feels securely attached to the stem when mounted, and detaches easily. The phone's touchscreen can be operated while in use and not a drop of water entered the casing during a heavy rain trip. One negative that is really not important is that it svivels a bit too easy making it a bit 'unstable' when operating it, specially since you need to apply a bit more pressure when using the touch-screen when the phone is in the casing - but of course you're not operating the phone while riding anyway... ;)

Very quick and easy to attach/detach from bike.

Posted02 June 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight
A good size for a Sony Xperia Acro S with just enough room to remove the phone from the case. Mount is secure, even on a carbon top tube. The snap fit and easy pinch to remove action is super fast.
All phone features can be used while in the case except the camera which is rear facing.
Water didn't look like entering during a recent ride in rain.
