Samsung has unveiled a concept design for a very bizarre accessory for its Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet. Teaming up with 14 Bike Co. it has devised a way of carrying your device securely while riding a custom-built bike.

A carbon fibre-mounted clip running under the crossbar of the bicycle allows you to dangle the tablet between your legs for easy access while on the move. Samsung claims it can also be clipped and unclipped easily from the mount.

If it passes through the concept stage, the bike and the tablet can be bought as a pair, though details on pricing have yet to be revealed.


We guess a trip around East London would not be the smartest of ideas. Fancy taking your tablet for a ride?

it'd make a lot more sense if you could clip it to your handlebars and use it as a sat nav :O_o1:

Still, looks like a nice bike - I'd buy one and sell the tab to help fund the purchase ;)
A fixed-gear bike and a top-tube-mounted tablet? Hmm, that sounds awfully precarious to me.

It may work in South Korea but, as the article says, I'd be reticent to ride a tablet-equipped bike anywhere near where I live.

I'm thinking a £5 rucksack might just do a better job.

I would have to agree with Tarinder, it wouldn't last 5 minutes on my local roads.
its a fixed gear bicycle aka tardcycle. the people who buy those are so chronically retarded they aren't going to have any qualms about damaging a tablet.
It appears capable of cycling over water. Apple may have trademarked the Jesus phone, perhaps Samsung are hitting back with the Jesus bike?
