    Hey,
    I'm going somewhere that they don't allow phone in the facility and I kinda don't want to leave my phone at home as it is a long bike ride and I enjoy my music. Can you guys help me with any ideas as how I can hide my phone on my bike??? or any bags that I can use???

    The little bags that go on the top tube will work:

    If you mean how do you leave it *securely* when your bike is parked in a non-secure situation (like standard sidewalk or unguarded rack parking), I'm not really sure that there's a good answer to that. Tape it or affix it somehow on the underside of the saddle is my best suggestion.

    Usually, places that don't allow cell phones have some sort of check at security or the front desk. Have you asked?

    yes I did ask, they don't have such a check. Which is why I have asked for help on here.

    okay I guess I will have to improvise...

    nope they have metal detector. There is no possible way of taking it in the building.

    1) Wrap the phone in a dirty chain rag / sock
    2) Affix the package somehow and in an inconspicuous manner to the top of the seat rails
    3) Hope for the best

    Sigurd that sound like a good idea, maybe put my dirty laundry in the crate and some rags and maybe no one will even look.

    If your phone is small enough, maybe one of the little key-safe thingies the surfers use for their keys and IDs. They lock them to the tow hitch.
    I've seen some fairly big ones.

    Something like this: http://www.amazon.com/Master-Lock-5400D-Set-Your-Own-Combination/dp/B0002YP1VC/ref=pd_cp_hi_0

    When I hit the beach, I usually ditch my phone and wallet in bushes near by. If there are people around, I just sit down and take a sip out of my water bottle while ditching my gear with the other. Never had a problem.
