Of all the uses that have been found for mountable cameras like the ever popular GoPro, the role these mountable cameras have played in bringing dangerous drivers to justice may be the most valuable. When helmet cams first hit the market they were tailored to extreme sports enthusiasts, made to capture the exploits of surfers and snowboarders, and of course cyclists were quick to adopt the technology for their own purposes.
Boombotix recently released an updated version of their original handlebar mount . The Handlebar Mount Kit 2.0 fits virtually any bar, with vibration damping pads to help fit smaller gauge bars. The new mount still works with the original Boombot 1 and Boombot 2 designs, as well as the newer Boombot Rex.
The Handlebar Mount 2.0 retails for $40. Check out www.boombotix.com

Pecker Design is an Austrian firm that makes bike grips from local wood. Their products are aimed at being stylish and socially/environmentally conscious. In keeping with that goal, the grips are made in a workshop that employes people with disabilities. So as much as I want to make childish jokes about the name Pecker and their use of wood (including nut wood) I’ll refrain because they’re trying to do something good. Which is hard. No pun intended.
