Quadlock is the best system i've used so far - And i've tried a few!

It's not a cheap option though. You buy a pack which includes;

Phone case for your specific phone
The lock body
The mounting system

It's also compatible with RAM mount items.

I'd 100% say it's worth every penny. It's very well made, and very dependable.

See, i had an S8 with a RAM X-grip and hated it. Seemed like the grip points were specifically designed to press buttons on the phone.

Ram is a bit of mucking around and all the components disintegrate over time. It's more flexible, but I rarely have more than one phone at a time.

Quad lock by far for me. I've used both a couple times.

I use a RAM with my S20 Ultra, works great although I'm pushing the size limit on this thing it's almost fully open just to grab onto the phone with slim case. I always use the extra rubber net holder, with previous phones I didn't feel it was necessary but with this phone I definitely feel like I need it.

I like how adjustable it is you can really put it almost anywhere and adjust to the perfect viewing position. Plus you can put a bunch of other accessories on the base RAM mount system if you're into that.

If you search here, you should find my post about putting a Quadlock on my Bolt - photos showing the mounting position etc. It's a very good system.

I like the ram mount.  So far, no issues.  See my post here:

Quad lock. Best mount you can buy. Mine is around 4 years old. Itís small enough that you donít notice much. And strong enough that used to lift my bicycle from my mounted phone. (Before it was on my bicycle)

Further, though, the fork steam mount is the best in my opinion but apparently it won't work on a c-spec,  there's another thread here somewhere about it

If you replace the C-Spec's cap nut with an aluminum nut from a sport bike, I'm pretty sure the stem is hollow.

Hmm got this from another thread

Hmmm interesting. So the fork stem doesnít work with the Yamaha Bolt... and with the clip-on bars on the C-spec it doesnít look like a clamp will work either... any one with a C-spec have a RAM mount?? And what kind of mount did you use?

Can anyone confirm/deny? I'd prefer the stem mount as it's so clean (and vibrates less) - but not sure what to believe now!
