Introduction: Bicycle Phone Mount
I was trying to "catch em all" but I was too slow and I decided to use my bicycle. I realized it will be hard to use my phone. So It took me 15min to make my mobile phone mount for my bicycle....for free ;)
You will need :
a bike bottle cage
2 large elastics
some adhesive (electrical adhesive)
Something to strap the bottle cage to the handle bar (like a cable tie)
A metal saw
Step 1: STEP 1 : Cut an Bend the Bottle Cage
You need to cut the the circular part with the metal saw. It will free the left and right side ande form 2 little rod.
After cut, you can bend by hand the rods to fit the phone dimensions.
The mobile phone wont move left or right thanks to rods. You can add some adhesive on the rods to protect your phone.
Step 2: STEP 2 : Mounting
My bottle cage was strap to the bicylce with a metallic collar, thus i could reuse it to fix it on the handlebar.
If you don't have the collar you can use plastic tie
Step 3: STEP 3 : Installation of the Mobile Phone
You must add the 2nd elastic on the upper part of the phone to avoid vibrations.
I have made 3 sessions with my new device and there is no problem to use the mobile phone. Use the sound cause you won't feel the vibrations of the phone.
Be carefull on the road.
Take in account the risk of mobile falling, i am not responsible.
15 min - almost Free - usefull
