I do not make it a habit to visit Kickstarter, but I don't really need to because readers or those looking to raise funds send me Kickstarter links all of the time. One link that was sent to me a while back was the following project known as the "Bike Wrist." The problem was finding a way to attach a watch to your handlebars.
I am sure these dudes are really nice guys, but I can say that I would have been stunned if this project got funded. To me some of the stuff on Kickstarter makes no sense because there are obvious and easy solutions to "problems" people encounter.
The overall concept of attaching a watch to your bike baffles me since cyclometers are relatively cheap, added to the fact that people want to use their smartphones for everything these days. A simple search for "Smart Phone Bike Mount" yields over 6,000 hits. However, I do own a watch and thought I would give the one person, or maybe two out there, interested in putting their watch on their handlebars an easy solution. Step 1 -
Step 2 - Hocus Pocus 1 - 2- 3!
Anyone want to fund me? =)
I have been thinking about developing a soda habit and stealing this brilliant idea we posted last year and putting it on Kickstarter . . . just don't tell the owner of the blog Cycling Experiences -
