I’m a MTBer but long distances on and off road.My problem is... I can’t see what this does over strava and an iPhone on a quad lock mount?I’m not voting cold just because I don’t understand the deal but can anyone explain how these are better?


If someone needs a bike computer this is a great deal. Benefit over your set up is no need to worry about needing a waterproof phone incase caught in the rain. No need to spend almost the same price as this on Quadlock kit and it gives an all in one solution to give navigation and track your ride for Strava.

Also not running down your phone battery with GPS and screen always on.

I'm tempted by this. Wonder if I can also apply my Cycling UK discount to bring it down another £10?

Not expensive at all and very useful. This is a good price, my Wahoo Roam is 300 quid and i don't regret a penny of it
Not useful to you doesn't mean not useful to others

You can pre load cycling route before leaving so acts as navigation.

Ah ok - thanks.

You can do that on Strava in a limited sense but admittedly it’s pretty hard work. Also looking at the other images on Halfords the screen is perhaps clearer in the sun and has better battery life than a phone?

Same here but i only ride on the road. I have lots of different routes varying from 40 to 100 miles I never get lost so Strava is great for me, I also now subscribe to ( been in it for years but can't give up the segments ect). Apart from telling me my speed don't see the point but that's just me.

I’m always a bit worried about the vulnerability of my iPhone XS on the handlebars if I come off so keep it safe and sound in my back-pack. I guess these are a lot more forgiving in an accident than my phone and the worst case is I’m £99 out of pocket if it’s destroyed. Apart from a cheap Cateye - which is useless and I don’t use now btw I don’t have a bike computer but want one. Shall I go for a good bracket and use my phone or go for a dedicated? The trouble with the dedicated ones is the price. Any advice is also appreciated.

The quad lock price is a fair point - because I ALWAYS have a quad lock case, and bought the kit literally years ago I ignored that aspect completely.

Someone also mentioned that crash cost - again very good point - nearly had a car turn across me the other day and my biggest concern was the grands worth of phone on the front!

You will get 10% discount on this, or 15% with the owners club cards.

I use Quadlock but it isn’t cheap, the the phone case may not be to your taste (I love it though). It won’t move off the bars once on, but it doesn’t do a lot for vulnerability I admit (the rubber case is strong but that’s it)

Thanks for everyone’s comments. I don’t see its a fit for me, but I see why these devices have value so cheers all.
Edited by: "HistoricDealer" 6th Jun
Agreed. I've got a Mate 20 X 5G and feel it's just too big to have on a Quadlock and like you I would be going to protect my phone not myself in a crash 😝.

Needs to see how to apply the discount as Cycling UK is a voucher you are meant to show when you buy in store.

For navigation , Edge 530 is much better. Unfortunately it's over twice the price but features full mapping rather than the "breadcrumb" navigation on this one. Also has Trailforks integration which is useful for mtb

Your iPhone GPS data is no where near as accurate as a Garmin either.

You need to buy in store to use it I think (at least with owners club cards). They are still accepting at the store though - my local is basically now a counter service though. You don’t have to click and collect - just tell staff what you want and they go get it.

(They will also price match the website, and allow the card)

Good points.
I had my iPhone and quad lock originally, but found when weather was cold my phone battery would die very quickly. In the end bought a Wahoo bolt and it does so much. Navigation, distance, average mph, gradient, heart rate, cadence and everything in between with endless configuration. If u want all that stuff it’s waaay better than the phone and a quad lock.
Mapmywalk great App... It's free and you can choose any sport you want and logs everything, been using it for 4 years.

Save your money get this app !!!

You're going to get better and more accurate stats from this and Garmin connect (loadsa features and it's free/included), this supports GPS and Galileo for tracking and a barometric altimeter for elevation, plus other sensors like temp, as well giving you the ability to pair external (ANT+ and BT) sensors such at heart rate monitor, speed, cadence, power meter, lights/radar and also record your power from an indoor turbo trainer (won't control it tho, you'll need a mid range for that). Battery life and weatherproof-ness are also a bonus

Does this add more if one already has a Garmin vivoactive 3 with a cadence and speed sensor apart from navigation and battery life?
once youve bought out front mount , you may as well spen nother 100 on 530

i just have , i think itll prove worth it


you cant really compare it with sticking your expensive iphone up front on a ( 50 quids worth ) mount

no strava or powermeter compatibity, if you even wanted to
Edited by: "logohigh" 6th Jun
Battery life not especially great in this once connected to a HRM + cadence. Barely 4 hours. I changed to the 530 which is much better.

Smartphone + Strava is cheap but can't connect a HR strap.
My way of looking at the issue of mobile vs bike gps comp is the length of your ride- if you do 2 hour ride the mobile is sufficient, if you go longer I would get gps bike computer as I don't want to be left without battery on my mobile in the middle of nowhere. As for the cost of the mobile- you can use older mobile and use your sim card or tether from your expensive mobile. I used mobiles and watches up to now but decided to treat myself with the 530 but UPS stole it (they delivered empty open box)

It’s a bit like having a phone with a camera that’s ok, or a separate dedicated camera, loose analogy, but kinda works.
Real_mac06/06/2020 17:11

When I do all day rides, my phone battery would be dead in half a day, my GPS unit lasts all day and then some. It also has full worldwide mapping loaded on it without need for an internet connection, hugely helpful abroad
So an iPhone can't come close to doing the same thing

you just need to look at strava segments / rides / map in satellite view recorded on an iPhone vs Garmin and you’ll see.

ive also seen people using their phone to get better times on strava as the gps is less accurate.
The 530 can occasionally be had for £172.
Does this do maps? Even if just basic was looking at this.

Mention This since this could nearly happened to me , ups dumped my 530 on someone’s doorstep 5 away from me , no sig -nothing

If it wasn’t for young bloke in that residences honesty I’d be same position

It even showed up as Signed for by someone Delivered, email to me
Edited by: "logohigh1" 6th Jun
I went for a 20 mile road bike ride today using my iPhone 11 on my quad lock mount (with strava on and tracking my gps) and also my garmin vivoactive 3 (I’m more of a runner than cyclist) again tracking my gps. The difference in gps loss was 0.01 of a mile over 20 miles, which could have been the difference of me hitting start on my watch after hitting start on my iPhone. So those people worried about accuracy of phone gps - nothing to worry about imo
I’ve done 60 mile rides with a quad lock and an iPhone 11 Pro no problems. However, I have recently upgraded to a Garmin swift 530 predominantly because I can use the navigation features to explore new routes. Still carry my phone, but the Garmin is less cumbersome on the handlebar mount, has more features easily displayed for riding, and lasts ages before needing a recharge. I love it tbh. Gone are the days of mounting my phone on the bars.
Forgive my ignorance but can you upload .gpx files to this and then simply cycle the route, thanks in advance.
Do you need a smartphone to access your precise journey details when you return home? I'm thinking of this for my brother but he only has very old phone.

Same here, left it outside the door without even ringing the bell and email was sent stating that has been handover to someone called Amore! I was raging but UPS won't deal with me, they deal with the sender Garmin. It's been 2 weeks now and I'm still waiting on Garmin and UPS to finish their 'investigation`. I'm still hopeful that Garmin will send me another one. Thanks for sharing your experience
Edited by: "AndLaz" 7th Jun
My main concern here would be that it isn't actually waterproof but merely splashproof. Given the crazy nature of UK weather, and it is only getting worse, seems like a deal breaker to me unless you're an extreme fair-weather poppet
