Tech Tips: How to bling your bike

Three innovative gadgets to ease your bike ride to campus:

Coffee Cup Holder – With the help of a securable cup ring holder that attaches to your handlebar, you too can enjoy a cup of Joe while you race to your morning class. A lightweight aluminum coffee cup holder retails for about $13 at Felt Bicycles online store.

Universal Device Mount – Whether you want to track your bike speed or have access to Facebook while waiting for the light to turn green, you can do so with a universal gadget mount from Bracketron for about $40. Advertised to work on most devices, including GPS gadgets, iPhones and iPods, the touch screen is readily accessible through the clear cover on the weather-proof case. Alternative versions can be found on Amazon.com.

Umbrella Holder – Bike in safety with a mountable umbrella holder. It is designed to clamp onto your umbrella so you can go hands-free while you ride. Davis is known for its rainy autumn, so this umbrella may come in handy soon. The original Dutch version from DryBike sells for about $24, while cheaper versions can also be found online starting at $8.

So start the new school year by riding your bike in convenience and style with these neat gadgets.
