Default Just a little mod to attach artemis to handlebar of bicycle

I think this is a cool mod i've made up using one of these -

And one of these

http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/710-52...QQcmdZViewItem

a couple of M3x15, and nuts and washers, (replace the bottle allen key bolts) and 1 M4X10 (replace the handlebar clamp to bottlemount), all counter sunk and i created one of these:-

(It wasnt designed to be waterproof etc, just perfect for a sunday afternoon ride, with the help of the phones GPS)

Nice. Got some more pics of how you mounted the case to the mount? I've been looking for something like this when i go riding at trails I don't really know well.

Hi,

If you want a waterproof case get one of these.

Cable tied to stem, keeps phone dry and protects from over enthusastic rider/lack of skill issues :)



and



Do a search for Boxit waterproof case. You can also get a proper bike mount for it but I prefer the cable tie method.

Regards

Here is a closer look at the underside, ive cut a corner away to fit an external GPS aerial, and the damage next to that is just where i screwed an M3 allen bolt throgh where you screw in the belt clip and it has pinched and twisted the flat bolt thread that had been glued there
