Best Bicycle Phone Holders
1. Tiakia Bike Phone Mount
The Tiakia bicycle phone mount is a universal fit for pretty well any brand of mobile phone that measures between 3.5” and 6.5”.
It's the cheapest bicycle phone holder on our list.
That will be wide enough to allow for a phone case in most instances. The mount is fitted with four corners to hold the phone securely in place over the roughest of bumps.
Installation doesn’t require any tools: simply secure the bolt to the bike handle by tightening the nut.
The mount is adjustable to different size handlebars and locks with a ratchet mechanism. And releasing your phone from the mount is just a matter of pressing the quick-release button on the rear of the mount.
The design mechanics of the phone mount mean that it is automatically locked to prevent loosening during riding over uneven terrain.
The mount won’t scratch the phone because the back support is a sponge cushion. The item arrives with 3 different thicknesses so you can choose the size which suits the size of your phone.
You just need to stick the cushion to the support substrate for shock absorption and scratch resistance. In addition, the corner supports are made from durable but soft nylon plus sturdy ABS engineering plastic.
The Tiakia phone mount is simple in its conception but quite effective in its application.
2. Grefay Bike Phone Mount

The mount is a universal fit for any phone measuring a width of between 3.5” and 6.5”. You can even use it for a GPS only device if the dimensions are right.
The mount is made from a combination of durable engineering ABS plastic for the main structure, a super tough but non-scratch nylon for the parts which secure the corners of the phone, and a soft cushioning rubber pad against which the back of the phone rests in the mount and provides shock absorption.
The design itself is a simple adjustable ring which attaches to the handlebar of the bike with a bolt, a firm adjustable back support for the phone to rest against, and four corners which hold the phone securely in place once the ring has been tightened. No tools are needed to install the mount.
