Quad Lock Universal - Smartphone Bike Mount £19.99 ubyk

8
Cheapest on sale atm, reduced to £19.99, combined with an 'old' Sony smartphone and Strava it's a pretty unbeatable match. Had been using a Bike Citizens Finn for the last year which I'd give 7/10, th…

Is it cheaper elsewhere or are the cold votes because someone using a bike might use it and therefore a lower class of citizen?

I'm interested in this - not see the quadlock before so thanks OP and replies - you all get likes which mean internet points!


​In my experience of discussing this topic here and elsewhere, I'd say that a number of the cold votes will come from the Garmin brigade. These poor fools have been seduced/brainwashed in to believing that only a Garmin can be used on a bike as a computer. The problem with this point of view is that it's utter nonsense and with each new upgrade to the Garmin line it becomes more so. As Garmin try to squeeze even more features and functions into their computers, they fail to sufficiently increase the performance of the hardware and the usability decreases. Adding mapping makes sense, but mapping on small, low res screens makes little sense if you can't read the details on the map. Touchscreens are great but a touch screen that is so slow and unresponsive that using it is as much fun as having your nads massaged with sandpaper is an unacceptably rubbish feature on a 300+ quid piece of hardware.

The new Garmin's problem are that they are trying to provide smartphone functionality on feature phone internals, limited by a cycling computer form factor. Worse still, many of these new features require you to have your smartphone with you and connected to the Garmin for the Garmin to fully function. This is idiotic! But Garmin lovers refuse to accept this. I have a draw full of bike computers that no longer get used except for when I race, but for training, touring and just fun riding I use a smartphone (Sony Z3 bought used for £100 just to use on the bike) and a quadlock mount. By far the best solution if you want mapping, Strava etc plus you can take pictures, shoot video, post a status update.........

Just people down voting probably because they dont really know anything about it or comparing it to a cheaper holder that only has one application.

Ive had this for a few years, use it on my MTB and used it on my motorbike from UK to Dijon -France ,also in my car ( adapter sold separately). I also have a wall adapter to use it in the bathroom again it simply twists and clicks into place.
Its very stable otherwise I wouldnt trust using it with my Z3. Its quick and easy to install and disconnect the phone with a twist.
I believe Quad lock also do a version similar to the Garmin handlebar mount.
Its showing £17.99 now, usually £25 on Amazon.

just buy one that grips all four corners like this one:https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01FUKU1OE/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
far more secure and cheaper. admittedly its more obtrusive but i prefer the security of the corner clamps. like the idea of cling film but I've had my Z2 for two years now and it's very waterproof (and mud proof)
This product is not really in the same class as a Quad Lock (weight, aero, build quality). I also have a Sony smartphone running Strava stuck to a Quad Lock, it's been perfect for 2 seasons.

Thanks for the feedback.

Good price but not sure how this performs... anyone know?

There's not much out there because it is new. For reference, the Smart Lunars usually get good reviews and are plenty bright enough to be noticed on city commutes, not to light up the road though. The next cheapest 700 lumens (USB) lights from Moon, Cateye or Lezyne would be over £70.

At about 200-ish lumens, more than likely :)
