Here's an example. I mountain bike a lot and could definitely use the phone in case of emergences.

Smaller flip phone I could easily pad and safely put in my underseat tail pack with zero worries.

Where do I carry the iBrick type phones? Won't fit in my pack that's for sure. Put on my body and could easily damage it if I fall.

Grrrrr. Need an iPhone that the screen folds in half so it can be smaller.

Put it in your pocket and don't fall off your bicycle.
I put my phone in my pocket and ride a motorcycle which goes at much higher speeds then you can obtain on a bicycle and I don't worry about falling and damaging my phone. If I was worried about falling I'd be way more worried about myself than my phone and if I was that worried I'd drive a car.

No pockets. No fall is ideal but I 90% of the time I ride to race train so falling is somewhat par for the course in mtn biking. That's not me btw. Guess buying a larger seat pack might be the best option.

You don't think one of the newer phones would fit in that bag? The phones aren't really that big. How big is that bag under your seat?
As for the pockets don't worry, bob wears those spandex biker shorts all the time and he carrys his phone tucked into them near his crotch. Of course bob doesn't have much of a "package" down there so there's plenty of room.

You don't carry a camelbak or anything like that for water? I know my cousin's bag would easily have enough room in the top of it for any phone.

Actually, if you rode a lot you should probably have a bike pump, tube, some tools etc... All of that stuff would take up more room then a phone as well.

Also for riding if you got a hard case for the phone, you could mount it right in the middle of the handle bars. Then you could use it for a GPS or whatever else.

Not bad, looks a bit thicker but seems very decent.
