US innovators F3 Cycling are crowdfunding on Kickstarter with a unique new take on the bike phone mount. Attaching to your stem cap, the mount then sits on your stem and uses powerful magnets to hold your phone in place, vertically or horizontal.
Described as the "bike phone mount to end all bike phone mounts" by F3 Cycling, they claim it can be stuck on your bike in under a minute and angled and adjusted to your preference. The design makes it universal, with four neodymium magnets creating a super-strong docking solution for your phone, with just a twist and lift required to remove. They do recommend that the case plate attaches best to plastic or metal phone cases rather than silicone or soft touch versions.
The magnetic technology appears on F3 Cycling's out-front mount solution, the Transform Form Mount, and they also produce a Garmin and Wahoo-compatible GPS mount claimed to fit almost any four bolt stem.
You can get a heavily discount Stem Cap Mount by backing F3 Cycling on Kickstarter, where you can reserve yourself one for $40 with a Super Earlybird discount. Check out F3 Cycling's website for more info.
After cobbling together a few hundred quid during his student days off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story), Jack bought his first road bike at the age of 20 and has been hooked ever since. He joined road.cc in 2017, having previously worked for 220 Triathlon magazine. Jack's preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking (the latter being another long story), and on Sunday afternoons he can often be found on an M5 service station indulging in his favourite post-race meal of 20 chicken nuggets, a sausage roll, caramel shortbread and a large strawberry milkshake.
