Unlike other phone-holding products available for your bike, RAM's offering is moulded specifically to the shape of the iPhone. As a result, it feels extremely secure - the phone clips into place and is held there from all sides, so there's no way it's going to jump free. Despite using zip-ties to attach the socket to the handlebars rather than a screwing mechanism, it manages to stay in place without sliding around, thanks to the adhesive rubber backing provided. Some damping of road vibration even takes place, thanks to the ball-and-socket style in which the mount itself attaches to its socket, while keeping the mount held securely - you have to rotate it to almost 90 degrees to remove it.

All in all, I'd recommend this, and I say this as someone who tried a competing product and didn't trust it!

Does exactly what it was meant to. Hold the iPhone in place on a bike.

The phone snaps in and is heald very secure. Having bumped up and down many kerbs this wasnt going anywhere!

Only down side is that this leaves the iphone open to the elements do not use if it is raining, even a little.

You can remove the iphone and the case together with a simple push and turn motion.

Main down side would be that once the fixing bracket is on the bike using the cable ties you would need to replace them if you wanted to move the whole thing to a new bike.

Over all worth getting, works great on google maps as a satnav at a fraction of the cost when used with a 3g iphone.

Fits OK to be stem. Not a perfect fit but very secure. When the phone is attached it is very secure. Removing the phone requires a little knack. You need to rock the case back when twisting it to unlatch it. This wasn't obvious to me and took a day of frustration before I figured it out. Other than that, its pretty good case. The tabs protect the case front when lying face down. Minus 1 star only because you need to use a zip-lock bag for rain protection.

I bough this initially for my motorcycle, which has a handlebar similar to a bicycle. It fits great. Very rigid and does cope with the speeds of a motorbike on any type of road (road that is, not dirt track). It also allows you to charge the iphone as the plastic enclosure doesn't hide the connector.
You install it in 5 minutes and it's extremely easy and a durable system to attach it to. I use it everyday and whenever I park the bike take it on and off. Had it for over a month now and no signs of premature wear and tear.
My helmet has bluetooth integrated in it so it allows me to see who is calling me. Ideal.

This is very simple to fit and works!! I have only used on the road but occasionally it has been on fairly bumpy surfaces. There is a fair bit of vibration when riding but it doesn't seem to affect function of the phone and it stays well positioned with no chance of becoming detached.

Have only been for a couple of road rides about 20 miles in total, but my iPhone 3G stayed put. Vibrated a bit (straight road bike no suspension) but google map was readable and felt safe. Very happy!

Verified Purchase
I bought this RAM EZ-ON/OFF bicycle handlebar mount for Apple iphone 3G in summer 2011.
It took me a couple of months to get round to fixing it on the bike.
Easy to fix- just two narrow zip ties (would cost less than pennies to buy). Didn't seem very secure. I have used zip ties plenty of times on bikes etc. and I know they're tough- but they can pull out...I was not overly sure that I wanted to risk my iphone falling off.
The iphone sits in a casing with a big, four-pronged 'knobble' on the back. This knobble is pressed into a hole on the mount against the pressure of a spring, and twisted into place.
I didn't need to worry about the zip ties failing: On the third use, the plastic knobs on the four-pronged knobble sheared off as I used mild force to insert it into the mount.

I had not kept the packaging/receipt and had it a few months before use. I didn't ask for my money back- but don't waste yours.
This really is a rubbish piece of 'kit'. Badly designed, even without the shearing, and clearly not worth the asking price.
Phone vibrated a lot on the bike too.

This is a good simple mount that fits an iPhone 4 well.
It comes with various bits of plastic/rubber for fitting on tapered handlebars.
Usefully I found that it was adjustable to fit on the handlebar stem keeping the mount totally central to the bike.
This is a visually tidy and physically secure place to mount.
NOTE: This is definitely not a weather proof mount, look elsewhere for that. But for a cheap fair weather bit of kit it is great.
