I like night rides better as I'm more visible to cars with lights and all. I stand out. On the other hand, bugs are no fun. Regardless of when I ride, my rear light is always on.

Blendr iPhone Mount

I've searched but am coming up empty, so I'm throwing this out. Has anyone found a Blendr mount for an iPhone? I would love to have a Rokform or Quad Lock Blendr mount but they don't seem to exist.

Which is ridiculous. I never cared about what anyone thinks of my bike or how it's configured. I ride what I want and how it's comfortable for me.
