What if any phone mount do you guys use? I took my bike to Atascadero over the weekend to ride before a weeding. Was a pain in the arse to stuff my phone in my bib and pull it out to check maps etc.

Bunch of $10 elastic bar mounts on eBay and Amazon that look intriguing. I don’t need anything super pricey.

REI has on closeout a Topeak Ridecase mount for Iphone 6/6s. Regular $90 setup for $27.

It's a weatherproof case and two mounts; stem cap mount and a bar mount.

The instructions say NOT to use the stem cap mount with carbon fork/steerers. Can someone explain why? Something to do with the compression plug?

Seems fine to me, I just mounted it. It's much cleaner than mounting it on the bar non-centered.

I may actually return it and order this one from amazon. Same design but this way I can have a case with sticky clip solely for my bike. The topeak case it not one I'd want in my pocket at work.

I recently snagged a $13-on-sale-@-REI Timbuktu top tube bento box with a top window pocket for i6 - kinda clunky, some storage, more bulk than your approach

think I'll look that new REI sale up......

They are probably being overly conservative. So that if someone over tightens the shit out of it and cracks the carbon steer they don't get sued.

Picked this up yesterday. SMP Drakon

Was riding an old forte that started causing pain around the 20 mile mark. Tried a stubby 'tri' type saddle new from performance bike and around the 20 mile mark it was discomfort.

Hoping this SMP will help that. Read the setting it up takes time to find the sweet spot with angle of nose.

Hey Dubbs,

If you don't like that saddle I invested in a Selle Anatomica X2 saddle, I bought one used off FB classifieds and loved it so much I bought another for my race bike. Expensive but worth it, and I heard about it from this thread.

Am I a BARFer if I haven't lived in the Yay Area in 12 years or ridden a motorcycle in over two years?
