Mount for iPhone 7+

Quad Lock, Rockform, others?

What to you all like?

I think I prefer a bar vs stem cap mount but a little curious.

Quadlock works very for its intended purpose. I use it with my iphone 6 when riding rollers indoors (trainerroad) and when I need directions when riding in a new area (ridewithgps).

So the 7+ is a big piece of kit and should probably not be mounted out front. Somewhere on the stem or TT would be safest. Not sure what is out there that approved mounting out front. I know I've seen a few 3d printed cases on shapeways, but most of them state for indoor riding only.

I'm also curious if you are mounting it portrait or in landscape orientation?

FWIW, QuadLock addresses all these issues. It is a great case in addition to the mounting options.

Quadlock

I’ve used others, this is the best and easy to install. You can mount on the bars, stem. Very good product

I would do it portrait on the stem or bars depending on which one I bought.

Right over the stem seems perfect. The Rockform seems to push further out but I don't know if that's really a problem.

Thanks
