    @calculman Exactly where I was going…This would be way cooler if it could harness the energy expended cycling and power up your laptop with it. Could also use a water bottle holder. But at $80 for the BYOB version, a renewable energy component would probably price out a lot of health-seekers. Still, there are many of us who would only be interested if green power was an option.

    @calulman Exactly where I was going…This design would be even cooler if it harnessed the energy you expended cycling to power up your laptop. It could also use a water bottle holder. But at only $80 for the stand version, it’s a good excuse to bring your bike indoors. I bet the renewable energy component would price it out for many health-seekers.
