Dahon iPhone Bike Mount Prepares for Launch
Image via BikeRadar
Folding bicycle company Dahon is behind a new bike mount for the iPhone or iPod.
The BioLogic Bike Mount, which is expected to sell for $59, will be on display this week at the Interbike show in Las Vegas.
But what happens in Vegas won't stay in Vegas as the Dahon iPhone bike mount will officially go on sale in January, according to Wired's Gadget Lab.
Waterproof? Check. Shockproof? Check. Bike mounted? Check. Dahon’s BioLogic iPhone case puts your iPhone up front on the handlebars, right where you need it, and gives it enough protection that you don’t need to worry about it getting rained on or shaken to death.
The mount allows a 360º swivel, and the front membrane transmits your touches so the iPhone can still be used on the go.
Legitimate uses: GPS and mapping, cycle-computer applications and music. Bad ideas: in-ride movies and Monkey Ball.

I wouldn't go through mud since there's a hole for the camera.
But nice concept.
Edit: Looks like I was wrong about the hole...

Exactly what I've been looking for! I may have to pick one up.
Though, I wonder if it will fit an iPhone with a case on it...

Sweet. Would like to know how the handlebar mount works exactly. Would like to use this on my Vespa scooter.

Great idea. I bet, soon their will be an app for wireless Cyclecomputing. Too bad for me I'm not a software developer.

That's epic. Too bad there isn't a GPS for the iPod touch.Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!
