    I got all 1" ball. The 1" ball u-bolt (came with 2 different size U's and a plastic insert), the 1" cup short bar, and x-grip with 1" ball.

    I set a reminder to take pics tonight so you can see mine. and I think I have the larger U bolt still sitting around too.

    You don't put some sort of protective case on it when you have it mounted? You crazy, son?
    Never used a case or screen protector on any phone. Never had a scratch....

    I haven't either. But if I was strapping it to a bike I DEFINITELY would. You hit a curb & it could easily get knocked out.

    Risky activity calls for risk prevention measures imo. But to each his own.

    Well.. been riding for several years, never had a phone come out. But... I am probably pushing my luck :o)

    Never got a scratch on a screen before too, but this one did! so now I at least have a screen protector.
    Here is my mount:

    Ok, thanks for those picture, Funky Cricket. Of course now I have two choices and I don't know which one to make. :)

    I could go with the strap model that nunyazz has with the 3/4" ball. Overall it's more compact, but with the 3/4" ball I don't know if they make car mounts and stuff for that size.

    The plus to Funky Cricket's system is that it could be more universal with other RAM products, and the U-Bolt seems more "solid." However it looks larger overall.

    Sometimes I hate choices.

    it does stick up some, but you can just unscrew the mount and move it to your car/bike/boat/spy jet helicoptor. the strap mount isn't easily removable. It "pops" into the socket and is supposed to stay there, that is why I spent a bit more money on the modular pieces. That and for trail riding I thought the u-bolt would be more sturdy for off road.

    I don't think my version is portable. If you need that, go with the larger version.

    I went with the Funky Cricket version. It was a little more $$$ but we'll see. It should be arriving today and I will test it out Thursday and Friday with several thousand of my closest friends on RAGBRAI... the greatest bike event around. :)

    You should really do it. This will be my 12th year. I don't go all week every year especially since kid #2 came along 4 years ago. The first time can be a little crazy when you realize you're on the road with 15,000+ other bikers. It's a blast though.

    keep us updated. I've been liking mine, but haven't been out as much as I've wanted, 95+ degrees makes it hard to bike when you are as out of shape as I am :P

    Will do. I have back to back 50+ mile days, should be a good test. I don't have a case and the 928 is slickish, so I'm a little worried about it sliding out, but I think I will be fine. I'm pretty excited to test it out.

    I was riding a potholed 2 track, it didn't budge, no case on mine. It seems a bit off center to not press the volume/power, but I haven't had one issue yet.

    No issues at all on my two days of riding. It rules. Like the others have said, because the buttons are all on one side you can't mount the phone centered on the grip. Even did some texting while riding.... haha.

    Thanks for the update! I like it cause I can turn it landscape if I want to take a video, I can easily change tracks or keep an eye on my tracking app to see speed and elevation and map (riding the woods and all, don't want to get lost!)
