My reply is similar to another post I just made to your question in http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=51184760 thread. This bike mount in your link above doesn't look as universal to fit your phone with any case on it. Sorry, I can't read German, so not sure if that case if form fitted for a naked S4 mini which obviously wouldn't be a good idea either.

In my opinion, when it comes to smartphone bike mounts, you want to be sure they have universal fit and can accept your phone with a rugged case. Imagine going downhill and falling down. Beside the point you need a protections you phone will need an extra protection too, not just relying on bike mount itself. That's why those Arkon SMWPCS534 and SMWPCS532 mounts in the link I provide above look like they will do a job!

Hm. Your point about a second protection might not be bad. But on the other hand, I dont want my phone to be lose inside the case.
If the case is made for my S4 Mini (naked) I know it will fit perfectly.
But thanks again for your recommendations, I will check them out.

Carbon Rom for S4 Mini

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...642488&page=26

Its my first carbon rom and i like it a lot. Although not all features have been ported to KK, yet. There are also some issues with BLN unfortunately.
But I tend to stay on that rom for a long while and things will hopefully work out.
