5.0 out of 5 stars Solid bit of kit, 14 Feb. 2012
By 
This review is from: Bicycle Cycle Bike Mount with Hard Tough Waterproof Case for the Apple iPhone 4 / 4G, Black & White Editions (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I got this for an upcoming cycle ride from London to Paris but I will also use it when walking the hills at home. It's a solid bit of kit and provides great protection for the iPhone. Only a direct hit on the screen itself is likely to cause any damage.
All the ports are accessible with snug rubber fittings to allow you to plug in your power lead or accessory without compromising the unit's waterproof features.

The touch-screen works very well but you do have to be a little firmer of touch around the edges of the screen. Visibility is also good, although I had to get the angle right when setting it up on the bike to stop too much reflection off the sky or surrounding scenery.

Fitting to the bike frame was easy and I can see how some others might have struggled with the clip. On first fitting, you have to really push hard until you get an audible click - and you'll feel it too - to fit the mounting plate to the back of the waterproof/shockproof case. Once it's on properly, it's not coming off but it doesn't need to as there is a quick release button underneath allowing instant release from the handlebars or whatever else you have it mounted on.

It also comes with a detachable lanyard (I also fit this to my bike frame as an extra safety-belt should the clip ever fail. Unlikely but better safe than sorry) which you can use if you want to roam the hills or valleys with your phone round your neck.

All in all, I love this unit. I do have a very small gripe that there is only enough space inside the box for the iPhone and a standard Apple power cable for charging on the go. I have a generic power cable on a flexi-retractor which I would prefer to use but it's just a bit too big. You will also have problems with external battery chargers that want to plug directly into the iPhone - you just don't have that sort of access. So long as you can use the standard Apple power/usb cable to connect to your external power source, you won't have an issue.

Hope this helps.
