Drop weight and save money!
Have you ever spent big dollars on a new bit of bike bling with the justification that it saves weight? Me too.
Do you carry more electronic goodies than is really necessary? Me too.
Are your jersey pockets bulging with stuff?
I possibly carry more than most people because, well it is my job. Camera, Phone, a couple of tubes, pump, the list goes on. Less is more, so I started looking around.
With the technology in phones nowadays, I could ditch the camera and use the phone, but I’d still have to fumble for it, so I had a look at putting it on the handle bars. After much researching I found a product called the Quad Lock. What sets Quad Lock apart from other similar products was its simple mechanical locking system and big lever to release the phone. A shock and waterproof phone case will protect the phone as best as possible out on the road.
To replace the computer, I have downloaded the most comprehensive app, Cyclometer GPS. It does everything that the computer did but on the phone.
So in one swoop I have dropped the camera and computer off the scales and out of my jersey pocket. Probably the best part of 500grams, and saved $1,000 not replacing the computer or the camera, bonus!
The best part is … you can too!
Quad Lock have come on board with VéloRoo and are offering a very generous 20% discount off all products when you order on line and use the code VéloRoo at the checkout! How cool is that!
