  • ironic hipster t-shirt not included

    hober says:
  • Only holder on curved handlebar is safe to use!

    rider says:
  • warning: not for use with actual hot coffee

    beNcode says:
  • Osom…!!!

    Lexico says:
  • thats amazing where can i buy this super hot stuff

    ding says:
  • what about those of us who chop and flop?

    tarynpaper says:
  • If the cup is HOT and FULL… it’s going on your hand over the first good bump.

    Buggar says:
  • I can’t imagine picture drink’n’drive.

    Spectator says:
  • good modern SENSELESS design – come on ask yourself the question: is it realy better than before?

  • That’s not a cup holder. THIS is a [url=]cup holder[/url].

    oh4ind says:
  • that has to be [url=]Chindogu[/url]

    HJ says:
  • This has made it to 22GLs weekly Design Wank posting:

    Lee Washington says:
  • In order not to swing out the coffee when you riding the bike, u’d better put the coffee in the middle of the handle instead of at the end…

    Climber says:

  • wow, people feel really strongly about coffee on bikes…

    tessar says:
  • SOMA’s Morning Rush did this first, and better:

    It uses the same mounting as Cateye’s bicycle lights.

    Brian says:
  • yo yall be fools. built my own coffee cup holder DIY styles back in the day, use it all the time. people cycle and drink coffee, especially iced coffee, so keep your pants on.

    sam bucca says:
  • it’s a poor decision to put the cup on the end of the handlebar since that is the spot with the most movement… attaching the cup closer to the stem like soma’s design makes much more sense. but i am always a fan of cycling being cooler than driving!

    nils says:
  • you’re all idiots.. arguing about health, and whether it’s useful. Tons of people drink all kinds of beverages while riding. I have a homemade one similar to this.

    atoll says:
  • I’d be down with purchasing it if it went into production. I would be worried about it getting stolen off my bike quickly. Can’t really tell if it has something which more permanently installs it, to deter from that.

    taciturnforsale says:
  • This has been all over the web, which is kind of funny. Everyone seemed to think it was a great idea when announced, but now is backtracking. High speeds and hot beverages don’t mix regardless of the cup holder.

    Even this “nearly” [url=]universal cup holder[/url] has it’s limits.
