If you are someone who loves cycling, then chances are you would have your fair share of cycling gear. The thing is, being on a bicycle is green and all, but it is not exactly the safest mode of transport to work and back home out there, considering how many accidents there are which happen to cyclists due to motorists who did not take heed of proper road rules and drive around carelessly. Basically, whenever you cycle, it would be prudent to always look behind from time to time to make sure no one creeps up on you – whether it is on two wheels or four.
This is where the $179.95 Bicycle Rearview Camera comes in handy, where it can be mounted onto a bicycle that will offer you a clear view of what is right behind you. The camera which measures 2.25″ x 1.5″ will be mounted on your bicycle’s seat post, where it offers a rear-facing 75º field of view that is perfect for you to check out whether there are any approaching vehicles or other cyclists. A 3.5″ TFT color monitor is capable of fittings bars up to 1.25″ in diameter, sporting a quick-release mechanism that allows you to remove the monitor in a jiffy from handlebars for charging purposes. I suppose it makes sense to remove this whenever you park your bicycle as well, as it might not be there any more when you finish work and want to take off on your bike.
