Is it just me or are things getting more than a little silly out there in bicycle gadget land?
Dave B emailed the following advert which he saw last week in a SkyMall catalogue on a domestic US flight.
As he rightly points out: “The mind boggles at the thought as to why a rear view camera with display is necessary on a bicycle, but there is obviously a market for it! Maybe for when you are backing up at the cafe? Or identifying repeat offending wheel suckers?”
I, for one, am quite glad I can’t see what’s going on behind me when I’m out riding. It would no doubt make for a far more stressful journey knowing just how close/fast/reckless the motorists behind me really are.
What next? Kitchen sink mounted on the top tube? There’s certainly not much room left on the bars.
