The bike and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 come together to offer one intriguing set up
Before going any further, we already know what you’re all thinking, and we’re actually thinking the same exact thing. The question we should ask is why? Knowing all the perils surrounding distracted driving and all, you’d think that the same values and ideas should apply to bicyclers as well.

Despite that, if you happen to have the slight itch to somehow access your Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 while riding your bicycle, then you might want to know that there’s a solution for your burning desire – albeit, it might not pan out to be all that practical.

The bike and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 come together to offer one intriguing set up
The good people over at 14 Bike Co. have concocted this intricate add-on accessory that attaches a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 onto the triangular frame of a custom bike. Thinking about it more, it easily makes anyone wonder why in the world would someone actually want to use a tablet while riding a bike. Nevertheless, the company says that this getup will allow the Galaxy Tab 10.1 to be “easily used while on the move.”

Currently, there is no pricing being given to this carbon fiber Galaxy Tab 10.1 holder, but it’s going to be made available very soon. Still, if you happen to hear something crazy in the news about a biker and a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, and that they’ve somehow got themselves into an accident of some sort, we’d suspect that you wouldn’t be all that surprised.

You know what's going to happen right? Someone will be riding his bike & using the tablet at the same time & they will kill themselves. This looks like a bad idea all over. Imagine getting water on your tablet or just biting it real hard, there goes you one perfect Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.

This is clearly not designed as a accessory to allow you to use the tablet while riding the bike. Simply put, it is a great way to travel with your tablet by bicycle. As a cyclist in the Philadelphia area, I use my bike to get everywhere I go and almost never rely on my car. I will surely look into this accessory because it will allow me to keep my tablet seperate from all the other items I keep in my messenger bag that can knock around and damage my tablet.

Ok but why carry it like that? I am a biker also I do 18 miles on my bike every Monday, Wednesday, & Friday so I can keep fit. I would be scared that the tablet could get damaged or wet. Plus some people can't help themselves. I can see those people trying to get to their tablet while riding because it's too accessible. Whatever happened to carrying your stuff on a book bag or messenger bag like the way most bikers do anyway. To me it's safe & you don't have to worry about a car or truck lifting a rock & hitting your tablet. I don't know about you but I recently got my windshield cracked by a rock from a truck & yes I got hit in the face once too & had a small cut under my left eye while I was riding my bike.

OK i can see where you comming from with this but this is an accessory to carry the device and not use it... If a person is using it while driving the bike then its on them ! this accessories porpose is so that it can hold the item while riding your bicycle.. its not that bad of an idea at all

I bike a lot, AND I have a tablet. But I also have a backpack. Seems to carry my tablet just fine.

Thank you. That is exactly what I am saying. It's more practical & will protect your tablet from the elements. To me this accessory is more for show than practicality, it puts the tablet into harm’s way. It's just too exposed.

Can I get a strap-on set of arms to hold the handlebars while I use the tablet? Make that next 14 Bike Co!

only reason i could see to have this would be if you us that my tracks app. or an app similar to that. other than that just to carry but like jskrenes said a backpack is just as good. unless you only want to take your tablet somewhere.
