Bookman Cup Holder

Stokholm-based bicycle product designer, Bookman, have just released this interesting take on the handlebar mounted cup holder. Let’s be real though, it’s a coffee cup holder. Why would you want to put anything else in a cup, really? The cup holder is a screw-less contraption that functions through tension, making for an easy install and removal from the handlebars. It can be flipped in order to hold a 16 oz. or 12 oz. cup of coffee and is easily stowed away.

I have not tested this product, but my initial concern is the stability of the holder on bumpy streets. The video shows a little demonstration of agitation, but nothing that compares to the shaking that occurs riding normal streets. If it does hold steady, despite typical street obstacles, this is a great solution for us “caffieneds” who don’t want more clutter attached to our bikes. The Bookman Cup Holders retail for $39 and can be purchased through their site.

    or you could drink half while its hot and jam the rest in your bottle cage like people have been doing for 20 years for free.

    The products I’ve seen from bookman are visually pleasing, and are great takes on existing ideas. However, this cup holder concept (from any company) never fully made sense to me. A solution that seems to be more practical to me, would be a travel mug that fits your bottle cage. I’ve seen some that are the correct size, but not many purposefully built for the cycling commuter. In my opinion, this avenue would be a better way for companies to go.
