Default Bike mount for Nexus 4

Hello all,

I just wanted to share the Bike mount I am currently usingg for my Nexus 4.

In fact, I use the one for Galxy SIII, that I slightly modified for the power button.

The phone fits perfectly and the whole package is quite easy to install and remove.

This is soooo much cheaper. I'm going to test fit my N4 this weekend at the store.

I saw a review saying the s2 won't fit. I hope it fits your nexus 4! Let us know. This is awesome!

Cheaper but nowhere near as cool, I have this and it fits my Nexus 4 and the slim case perfectly:

It was able to fit my old Galaxy Nexus, too, but the Galaxy Nexus was always harder to slide back out.

Its actually really cool in my opinion if it would fit. You could squish your sandwich behind your phone! But seriously, timbuk2 has great construction. Take a closer look at the materials and construction. Its pretty sweet in comparison.

Update on the Timbuk2 Goody Box... It's a no go. I finally got to see one today, and to my surprise is a lot smaller than I expected. You might get an iPhone 5 in there, but A Nexus even without any case is just too tight.

A second problem with it is that the flap at the top doesn't cover the opening to the phone pouch... So it's not at all waterproof.

Hope this comes soon enough to save someone an order...

Yeah. I was awaiting your response before ordering and from other reviews, figured it wouldn't fit. I think I could make something similar when I get some hobby time, so thanks for sharing!
