Bicycle touring with an iPhone.
About a month ago I started to seriously look for a new handlebar mount for my iPhone. I bought one last year, but it was too heavy and clunky. A bicycle is not a car or even a motorcycle, it needs something strong, but as small and light as possible.
I already had a GoPro type of handlebar mount that I had bought in Germany last year, but I was missing the part that held the phone, either on that mount or a tripod.
After searching every phone and camera shop in Chiang Mai and Bangkok, I finally narrowed it down to a cheap four armed claw type device and a very slick small clamp with a tripod mount from Manfrotto, an Italian tripod and lighting stand company, that is familiar to all serious photographers.
The final mount that I am now using was made out of the iPhone tripod clamp from Manfrotto, a GoPro type mount adapter from Rollie (German camera manufacturer), and a well designed Velcro and plastic handlebar mount made by SP, that I also bought in Germany.
