My bike is my second girlfriend. She’s celeste and she’s fast and I wouldn’t change anything about her. This is why I can’t have nice things. Especially mobile phone handlebar mounts. But wait a minute.. what If I use an elastic band to fasten my phone to my bike.
Stupid. Or is it? The Austrians behind Finn seem to think not.
Finn is a piece of rubber with 5 holes. Wrap it round your handlebars and poke in your phone and almost instantly you have a Facebook-enabled dashboard. It looks like the worst idea ever (sorry finn) but I did finger box it quite a bit and my phone just wouldn’t knock out.
Now – my cycle home passes through Tottenham Court Road in London. For London cyclists this is like the Alps. The potholes are basically mountains. And with no suspension and thin wheels I properly put Finn to the test.
However my preparations for what to do when my phone hit the concrete and smashed into a million pieces was in vain. My tears remained firmly in my face.
Better still – I could take off Finn when I got home to restore my bike to it’s original non-dorky self.
