Bike / Phone Carrier

Today i designed a lightweight, aluminium built carrier for my HTC Touch 3G phone on top of my KTM mountain bike. It was quite easy to choose the size of my custom made carrier in order to exactly fit in front of my mountain bike. Most of the commercial carriers are designed for car appliance and so i decided to build one for a mountain bike. In combination with my Windows Mobile Mountain software it is possible to view the GPS calculated speed, position, direction and the traveled distance of the actual tour. Until now i carried my phone in my bagpack during a tour which lowered the GPS signal and i could not check the driving stats.
The mountain bike carrier is specifically designed for my HTC device but i am sure it is easy to modify it for other devices.
