The Mounty: A Rubber Smart Phone Mount That Makes You Flexible

I get a lot of e-mail from people who make or sell smartphone mounts for bikes. They’d like to have their mounts reviewed. The first problem is, I don’t have a smartphone. I don’t want one.

This is supposed to be about bike trailers of a particular brand, that carry children, and happen to be on sale right now from my employer. I wasn’t sure how to approach this article until a few minutes ago when I saw a friend of mine post this on Facebook: This is an actual friend [...]
