You already carry your iPhone everywhere you go. With that said, you can download any number of apps to track your ride or map your route. Now you have a solid way to utilize that tool.
It uses a machined aluminum mounting bracket and mounts in place of a standard top cap. The case is slim and will fit your everyday style. It also includes an optional slip cover to protect against some elements.
"Overall the RideCase is a really nice offering for Topeak and we can see why it won the 2012 RedDot Design Award. It''s a great case for everyday use and provides you with a new tool for your everyday riding. We recommend it for commuting, road and touring riding as it''ll provide a nice perch for your phone should you be using it to track your rides."

I wish it mentioned that this won't work on all headsets. I spent alot of time working on this before learning it wasn't compatible. That said, I purchased the handlebar mount and like the product, it is just pricey to buy it all to use it with a handlebar mount.
Great product for the price. The stem mount bolted right on in about five seconds and the phone snaps right into the holder/case. The mount and case slide/snap together and stay together on even the roughest roads. The angle adjustment is stiff enough to handle most bumping, but the weight of the phone will cause the mount to seek its lowest/flattest point during very rough terrain. No biggie.
The silicon cover is a good dust cover, as it finishes wrapping your phone in a pretty well sealed environment. Not river-proof, but good enough against a sudden couple of thundershowers I rode through. Still, I carry Topeak's other iPhone drybag and if I think it will be a very wet ride, can take off the silicone cover, slide the phone and back part of this holder right into the drybag and then click the drybag to the same stem mount. A good and workable system.
