Coolhandluke has a good set up. It attaches to the handle bar, but I don't know the brand.

My brother used this one (or one like it) and liked it well enough. There are variations out there for different devices, I think his was specifically sized for his iPhone 4.

Use the ram mounts... you can get it for a couple bucks cheaper if you purchase it through amazon. That's what I used for my 250 and using now for my 600...

Are you looking to install it on the handlebars or the fork stem?

First link will be cut and inserted into the bike's fork stem... the other two connect to each other and you connect them to the ball on the fork stem connection

RAM Mount- the way to go

I have a Ram "Finger" Mount like the one below; for my iPhone 5, bought it as part of a kit from CycleGear.




I have it mounted like this:

http://www.rammount.com/Portals/0/Sk...adazumo367.jpg

Using this ball-and-bolt kit




If you can find a bolt to mount it to like I did, or some kind of stem mount, I would go with that over a handlebar u-bolt mount. I had one of those- left marks on my bars after I took it off. Either way, though, the RAM Mount has always felt very secure.

Another option. I didn't have room on my handle bars either so I made a mount out of two Go Pro mounts and a waterproof Otterbox.

Basically this is all you need.

1.



2.



3.




The only other thing you'll need is about a 25mm cap screw. Since you're putting a mount on the bike and a mount on the phone you're gonna have to put two 3 prong ends together instead of the 2 into 3. The plastic screw thing that comes with the mount isn't quite long enough to go 3 into 3 so you just need a slightly longer cap screw to make it work.

And this.



If you bought a Go Pro, everything would be in the box to do this. I see tons of guys put a mount in that spot anyway to get a shot of the speedo. Take the phone off and boom, you can still put your Go Pro there.
