  1. Um, maybe not such a good idea from a safety standpoint. If you get thrown from an abruptly stopping bike with your fingers in those loops, you’re going to wind up with a high count of broken digits.

    There’s a lot of delicate wiring in fingers that’s not so easy to fix when they get mangled.

  2. I think its pretty clear that this is the MOST UNSAFE THING EVER


    its so damn cool!

    which is why we blogged it

  3. As a former bike designer I can say this is a horrible accident looking for someplace to happen. I can also say that I’d like the idea to incorporated into a set of brake levers!

  4. Just google ,degloving, and you will get an idea of what is waiting for the person who rides that…… but I still want one.

  5. Just thinking something round like a motorbike helmet (only a lot smaller) with padding would be a heck of a better idea?

    If you like metal and the weapons thing why not jut get into the medieval armor / reenactment?

    On the other hand having been a cyclist and given up because of cars I can understand wanting to carry something like this!

  6. Do you have them on your pedals too? 😉
