The Bike Geek: Quad Lock for Samsung S5

If you recall, on my battle of the fitness bands post I declared the Moov as most cycling friendly fitness band. The reason it bested the other bands was that the app was really good, but that left me with another issue: I needed a phone mount for my bike.

Deciding which phone mount was no easy choice, there are plenty of mounts out there ranging from $9.99 to over $100 bucks. So what made me go with a Quad Lock case system? My buddy Rocky had one and he involuntarily crash tested it and the phone fared better than his knee.

I paid $40.00 for the Quad lock or the equivalent of my monthly beer allowance (good thing I’m trying to lose weight). The Quad Lock system consists of a very nice phone cover:

and the actual Quad Lock:

This combination makes the phone very easy to mount and it feels very secure.

I’m pretty satisfied with the Quad Lock, this setup will replace my aging Garmin 305 but I do have one concern: my phone’s battery life.

Here are more shots of the Quad Lock system:

So what is coming next week? Another gadget? A bike? Nope, just my very blunt and honest opinion of Electrified bicycles.
