Many of us may well question the wisdom of attaching a phone worth hundreds of pounds to the handlebars of your bike. Some will undoubtedly suggest doing so and then riding your local trails is just asking for trouble, and yet the products to enable a constant sightline to your ‘life preserver’ do so exist. Whether you want to live monitor your Strava segments, navigate a route with a mapping app or just be able to Facetime home when you are getting close, theres a pretty wide selection of gadgets that will do the job. So we thought we’d have a look at four that dropped into the office recently and see how good they actually are.
