    Bike attachment that fits DX?

    Ok, so I have really been into cycling lately and thought I could use a bike attachment for the phone since any "distance tracker" apps don't work with the phone in my pocket ffor obvious reasons.

    Wondering if anyone out there can suggest one for me.

    Thanks

    Beamed from my DroidX

    Duct tape! Jk but you could try mounting one of the car mounts if you have flat spot on your bike. You could also use an arm band and tighten it to the handlebars

    Not sure about the ran mounts fitting the DX... All it shows is the og droid and it says nothing other than "fits the motorola droid phones."

    anyone have first hand experience with these and the DX?

    Really looking for one that screw clamps to the bars....may be making one for myself from one of the 5 cases I have..lol

    Yeah I saw those. I san just worried about it falling out of a "universal" holder us know. I was hoping for a DX specific one, but looks like that isn't going to happen

    The bike mount says it is universal, which means it is adjustable to fit your phone.


    @ the Amazon product, two of the reviews said the phone popped out of the holder because you have to secure it with your hand. The one guy apparently crashed his motorcycle when his droid flew out of the mount. The other said his droid popped out after the first bump he hit on his bike and the screen shattered. There are good reviews about it, but personally I would stay away from it.

    yeah i just dont want to chance it. maybe if there was a completely enclosed "universal" mount or something. just dont want to take the chance on a "clamp in place" holder with my $200 device.

    i am thinking, once i get some time, that i can somehow fashion a bike mount with my body glove with the belt clip attached and having that attach to the bars with a hose clamp. still worries me so if there is any doubt it wont hold on, it wont go for bike rides with me.

    This one will definitely hold the DX. It is one of my best sellers. It also fits the original Droid, Droid 2 and the new Droid X2. This is one of the best Motorola Droid X bike mounts available.

    I bought one of those Arkon for a car mount that I wouldn't have to remove my case. Big, clunky, cheap, functioned ok in the car, no way I'd use it on a bike. In the end I gave it away and just take the case off when I'm in the car
