To be completely honest, since its still early on in this phone's life... The "best" ones would be the universal pouches that strap on to your bars or stem, much like this guy right here http://www.amazon.com/ChargerCity-Mo...+s5+bike+mount... Give it some time and better stuff will come out.

I am waiting for some myself since I used my GS3 with Endomodo and Strava constantly.

Keep an eye out on RokForm (www.rokform.com). I used their cases on my S3 and S4 and have the bike mounts installed on all 3 of my bikes. Looking forward to getting their case for my S5!

Edit: Just preordered!

Don't listen to the silly universal ones..

You want the best mount?? I'll tell you what the best mount is!!

It's a case.. That's right.. After riding 150 miles a week for many years and having all sorts of cycle computers, I wanted something CLEAN!! I bought a two piece case, like an otterbox (I forget the brand) and simply mounted the plastic to a typical ring clamp on my bike. I drilled/glues into the clamp so it was secured as could be!

When it was time for ride time, I would simply slide the rubber case (the second piece) around my phone than secured that into the mounted plastic case (The first piece)

It was 100000x better looking, it was actually USEFUL as you could use it while riding, it was also extremely secure! and could never come out without the proper bending and normal way you would take a phone out.








This was mounted so I could adjust on the fly, I used one of the garmin computer clamps I had laying around that would twist sideways and up and down. so when I got going I can adjust the phone so its angled with the wind and won't be a mud flap

Check out Kraken A.M.S cases. They have a variety of Mount attachments. I used one with my Nexus for 2500+ highway miles on my motorcycle.
