Because bikers need distractions too

The "iPod Bike Mount" looks perfect for watching video in traffic.

Why should car drivers be the only ones to enjoy watching video on the road ? As cyclists acquire more rights, they should also be able to distract themselves as effectively as their motorist counteparts.

The "iPhone Bike Mount" is supposedly designed to make it easier to control the device for music and phone controls on handlebars, but we fear that it might simply add to the growing list of eye-averting gadgetry that has made commuting a multi-tasking adventure for many afflicted with dangerously short attention spans. The bracket can rotate 360 degrees so the screen can be seen at any angle desired for optimal viewing of the iPhone, media player, or any other device that will fit in its adjustable arms. Just be ready with an excuse in case you get into an accident.
