I purchased this item based on the glowing 4/5 star reviews. It seemed that compared to other similar products, this one secured the iPhone tightly onto the bike. However, on my 2nd ride out the cradle flies off the bike and my iPhone bounces down the road. Also in my panic I fall off my bike causing injury to my hand. Thanks to this poorly made device my new shiny iPhone now has a smashed screen and scratches all over it. To say the least, I am not impressed.
Maybe it is my naivety that I went ahead and used the iPhone for this sort of activity, but it has taught me one heck of a lesson.
When I received the item I attached the bracket to my bike and although it looked rather ugly it certainly was sturdy. I then popped my iPhone in the cradle, again all nice a snug...so far so good. Then I slid the cradle onto the bracket. Instantly I was a bit concerned at the ease the cradle came out of the bracket as it didn't click into place as I would expect. However, as it needed a push to come out I (again naively) decided to gave it a chance.
At the end of my first short ride (1.5 miles) I was a bit worried about it, so the next day cycling to work took some glue with me so I could secure the cradle to the bracket. Oooops to late. Half way on my 1.5 mile ride to work it pops out of the cradle going over a bump and bounces down the road. Luckily it was a quiet road, but this didn't stop my iPhone becoming no more than an expensive brick.
Whether mine was faulty or there is an obvious design flaw in the product, I cannot recommend this device to anybody. If you do still decided to buy it, I would suggest super gluing the cradle to the bracket at the first chance you get.
A very unhappy customer.
