Need Some Accessories

Im looking for a holder that I mount to my handlebars and slip my smart phone which is already in a case into. I want it to have a clear side so I can read the phone screen while I ride.

Im also looking for some shoes. I ride with toe clipped pedals and gym shoes. Ive had some very close calls trying to get out of the clips before toppling over. Im looking for some shoes with firm soles and a semi smooth bottom. I frequently have to get off the bike and climb over fallen trees in the trail so I want a shoe that has some grip to it.

where are you guys getting your bike stuff at online? I was at performance bike shops site and it sucks.

I use clipless but I know a lot of guys that use flats wear 5-10 shoes.
mtbr.com is the pirate4x4 of mountain biking.

I've heard pricepoint.com is a good place to shop, I haven't had the opportunity to get anything there yet though. I ride in Salomon trail running shoes on flat pedals but I see a lot of guys wearing vans, samba's, or converse for the flat sole. MTBR seems to have product reviews for anything related to biking, just type the shit into google and you'll usually find it.

walmart skater shoes are a cheaper alternative to the 5-10 shoes

Performance or Nashbar are my usual sites. Performance has physical stores also, there might be one in your area.
