Quad Lock produces some of the strongest and most streamlined smartphone mounts on the market. Their Universal Fit Bike Mount Kit makes using a smartphone to navigate, track fitness, or view notifications while riding a simple and secure process. The low-profile Universal Adapter comes backed with a strong, weather-resistant VHB™ adhesive made by 3M®, which will stick to most flat / hard non-porous surfaces such as the back of a phone or protective case. With the adapter installed, the device can then be securely attached to Quad Lock's included Bike Mount on a stem, handlebar, or top tube with removable O-rings or a more permanent zip tie attachment. Just set the phone at a 45° angle and twist to secure it in either portrait or landscape orientations.
The phone is coupled into the rock solid Quad Lock system until the user pulls down on the blue collar while simultaneously turning the device to release it, thereby preventing any accidental ejections no matter how rough the terrain. Off the bike, the Quad Lock Adapter is slim enough to still fit into a pocket, and the universal design means it is compatible with any of Quad Lock's other mount options, such as those for running or driving.
Note from the manufacturer: The Universal Adapter will adhere to most flat / hard non-porous surfaces. It will not adhere to curved surfaces or silicon, TPU, rubber / rubberized, or heavily textured materials. It will not adhere to the Lifeproof IP5 FRE case but does adhere to the Lifeproof NUUD series cases.
Phone specific bike mount kits are available separately for various iPhone models and the Samsung Galaxy S5.

I road bike, but I like the case I already invested in for my phone. Luckily, I have a solid flat backing to stick this to. It's fantastically secure.
