A Better Bike Mount For Your Smartphone?

A few days ago, an email dropped into our box from Daniel, who said he’d just finished designing a new product that might be useful for bike touring.

It’s called the Handleband, and it’s an adaptable smartphone mount for bicycles. It lets you use your phone as a bike-light, ride tracker, navigation tool, and front-facing camera. It’s also a bottle opener.

The idea struck a chord with us. We’ve tried a couple smartphone mounts for our bikes but none were particularly impressive. Maybe the Handleband will fill that gap.

Check out Daniel’s Kickstarter campaign to get the Handleband off the ground.

    I was pretty impressed with the Quad Lock that I saw on a friend’s bike at the weekend.

    The Handleband looks pretty good too. I hope the Kickstarter works out for him.

    My question: how easy is it to get an good deal on an international package for your smartphone? My impression is that data can be really expensive if used outside the country where the phone is registered. GPS too. Am I wildly out of date?

      I think it depends very much on what ‘international’ is for you. Some countries have very good pay-as-you-go packages available; others not so much. It’s a bit out of date now, but the best overview (as an indication of what’s possible) that I’ve seen is here:
