Bicycle Phone Mounts and Bikes: How to Get the Best Possible Bang for Your Buck

A bike phone mount and bicycle shorts are among the top options to bring to your next outing, according to the bike phone mounts and bicycle phones group. 

“Bicycle phone mounts are great for long rides where you don’t need to carry a phone or laptop or a bike phone,” said John Boulton, director of communications at BikeRiding, a nonprofit bicycle riding organization.

“You can get the best of both worlds.” 

“If you’re looking for a bike that will keep your phone out of the way, it’s the bike mounts that you should get,” said Joe Tarnopolsky, an expert on bicycle accessories. 

The group said it has reviewed nearly 40,000 devices and has reviewed more than 5,000 bicycle phones to come up with its best picks for your next ride. 

Among the best are the new RideCycle 5R2S, which has a 5-inch screen and weighs just 2.3 pounds.

The device has an NFC chip that allows it to connect to any phone or other connected device, making it ideal for those who want to keep their phones off their heads while riding. 

One of the best-reviewed bikes is the Bikeset 4.5S, a 4-inch, 3-pound bike phone with a 3.5-inch touchscreen that is available with a battery pack for a whopping $149.

The phone features a 12-megapixel camera and accelerometer, Bluetooth, NFC, GPS, and a built-in camera. 

Bikeset also has a Bikesport 8-inch bike phone, a 3-inch display that can be mounted on the back of a bike and uses Bluetooth for Wi-Fi connectivity. 

Other top picks are the BikeGear 9.5, which weighs 1.2 pounds and has a 3D camera and a battery that can last up to 8 hours. 

And for those looking for something smaller, the  Bikeshark 9.0 has a 2-inch 1080p screen that can fit in your pocket or purse. 

Finally, the Bikeshark 10.0 is a 2.5 pound bike phone that comes with a 16GB microSD card that can hold up to 16GB of data.

It has a built in GPS, accelerometer and proximity sensor, Bluetooth 4.0, and Wi-FI connectivity.

Bikesheark has also launched a new version of its Bikeshop, which it calls the BIKEShop 8.0. 

For those looking to use the Bic Camera on a bike, the latest version of the BIC Camera with Bic Pro features a 3MP front camera, 1.5MP rear camera, and Bluetooth 4 support. 

Another option is the  BikeGear 7.0 that has a 16MP camera and is available in a black or silver finish. 

A Bikesharp 2.0 offers a 1.9MP rear-facing camera, a 13MP front-facing shooter, Bluetooth 5 and Wi.

Fi connectivity, and can be purchased with a 6-pack of 12 packs. 

Also for those wanting a bike with an all-glass screen, the new Bicyclocam has a 13-megapixels camera that can shoot 720p video at 30fps. 

While some of these options have been reviewed by other groups, BicyclePhoneMats is the only organization to review all of the devices on offer, so you can get an accurate estimate of what you should consider before buying. 

There are a number of other products on the market for those seeking a bike mount and bike shorts that aren’t as popular. 

Some of the top bikes are the Birocco, a 12-inch device with a 1,600mAh battery that will set you back $299.

The Bic, a bike helmet mount and the MotoRide are both available in both black and silver finishes. 

If you want something a bit more versatile, the MotoRide 8.5 comes with an NFC card that allows you to connect it to your phone and other compatible devices. 

These are just a few of the products that BikePhoneMates has reviewed and has recommended.
