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

    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?

    it looks like the front tire maybe full of helium as it appears to want to fly away maybe thats how it rides over water. No more puddle water in your mouth that would be cool

    Re: News - Fancya bike to go with your Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1?

    Is it a fixy, or just a single speed? Most fixies don't come with front *and* rear brakes, in my experience...

    That said, I actually prefer gears on my bike - justa few, but nevertheless, sometimes I want to bike up a hill, and sometimes I want to bike *really* fast. Single speeds just don't cut it for me...

    I had a single speed once, but I did get bored of it once the stabalisers were taken off.

    Thing is this is just a stupidly impractical thing, even cycling round a clean uni campus would get it covered in crap...

    Does pedal-power recharges the tablet?

    What? In case you're cycling long enough for the tablet to lose it's battery charge?

    Even if you were using it regularly, you'd have to be out for HOURS to run the battery down enough to warrant a charging bike!

    Presumably it would lose charge all the time you're using it away from the bike, ie the office or where ever. Then at the end of the day you cycle home and charge it up again.

    Re: News - Fancya bike to go with your Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1?

    Didn't one of the phone companies do a bike charger for their phones so you could use them as GPS with 3G data etc. That pulls charge out of a smartphone like nobody's business, and having a dynamo charger would make a lot of sense...

    What a simply ridiculous concept. Bet there's even a "we don't accept liability for your Galaxy" clause too.

    Daft as cheese.
