Mounted on a bike in Timbuk2’s booth at Interbike this year was something that created… a wide range of reactions. Like a triathlete’s “bento box,” the
Bag of Death Goody Bag sits atop the top tube and behind the stem. One-upping the bento box, the Goody Bag sports a touchscreen-compatible smart phone pocket and about the same capacity as Timbuk2’s large saddle bag.
All joking aside, it could be handy for those of us who use smartphone apps to map our rides- but bear in mind that it’ll sit almost between the rider’s knees- not somewhere you’ll want to be looking while riding. After relating near-death experiences from watching bicycle rear-view cameras rather than the road, our editor Tyler expressed keen interest in picking one up.
For everyone’s sake, please do not operate while vehicle is motion.
Oh, and no triathlete jokes in the comments.
