    Not convinced that a TV on your bars is a good idea. Right up there with those stupid dash mounted TVs (oh, sorry, they're called satnavs apparently) for people who can't get from A to B without having their hand held.

    Is it more distracting than a rear view mirror in a car?

    Exactly. Good idea if you commute through city streets. I suppose the DVD player bolts to the bottle cage bosses?

    yea, but do you really wanna see an 18 wheeler coming up your rear? bet it looks well more scarey on the screen, more than if you just turned your head and saw it. this thing would make you paranoid.

    If you can't look over your shoulder whilst holding a line, you really need to learn to.

    Now.

    I can teach you if you like. £1K + expenses. Could save yer life.

    Nice toy.
    But it needs a display on the back to tell the driver that you have seen them;)

    Good point.

    Let's face it though, you'd buy this for commuter racing. Just think how nice it would be to overtake another cyclist then not have to pedal like a loon for the next two miles just because you're paranoid he might still be drafting you, but can't possibly let him see you look back to check.
