    I'm looking for a hard shell that completely encloses my Nexus S, so I can mount it on my bike handlebars, and it won't get wet or muddy in the rain, and it will withstand the odd drop.

    All the hard shells I've been able to find are open on the front, so that you can use the touch screen. I won't be touching it while cycling -- I'll just be viewing a map, and listening to the occasional voice prompt.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks for pointing these out. However, Otterbox doesn't list a model specifically for the Nexus S. Does anyone know which of their other cases would likely fit a Nexus S?

    Try out the Trident Cyclops series, I just got one (gonna post a review on it in the other thread in about 2 min.)

    Its a hard plastic shell (clamshell style) with a silicone ring around the outside to protect against falls and bumps. It also has a built-in screen shield, as well as a small one for the camera & flash (you add it if you want, very easy to put on). It unfortunately doesn't have any sort of holster or anything to clip it onto a belt, so its a "pocket only" case. They come in a few colors, the yellow don't look too bad, I got black tho :D

    It DOES have a lanyard loop though, just an FYI (not sure I'd want it hanging around when I was biking tho!)
