THE SITUATION: Smartphones are filled with useful functions for cyclists. You can measure your speed and distance, track your route, get directions, even evaluate your level of fitness — all on a device you already own. But the issue for many cyclists is it’s difficult to get that information while you’re actually riding the bike.
A SOLUTION: Timbuk2’s Goody Box solves that problem by allowing cyclists to view a smartphone hands-free. The well-designed mini bag attaches snuggly on your top tube with hook and loop closures and features a see-through window to view the screen of your phone. The touch-screen friendly material allows you to interact with the phone, while still protecting it from the elements and the sweat dripping from your body.
THE DETAILS: The Goody Box fhas a compartment to store cash, car keys, or other small items that you want to take with you on the ride. It comes in black, gray, red and blue, and two sizes, small and medium, each weighing 0.3 pounds. For those following a new route, it’s an easy way to make sure you stay on target — no more taking the wrong turn while your phone is stuck in your jersey pocket.
