    Pros:

    Pros!
    Well no more getting soaked cos it's raining when you want to cycle to work
    No more trying to hold an umbrella and cycle at the same time
    I've fitted this to my 'shoppping' bike - the one i use for short journeys, and it's brilliant. You do look a little odd cycling along with this on with an umbrella - BUT who cares, you are dry!
    Very simple to use, folds away nicely, easy to fit, holds the umbrella well, even in strong wind/cycling fast. nice 'goose neck' action.

    Cons:

    Could be a danger if left 'up' when not in use, but it's really easy to fold down when i am not using it.
    I am a little worried part of it might get nicked when i am away from my bike, but meh, it's cheap enough, so who cares - not happened yet!

    OtherThoughts:

    You wouldn't want one for a racing bike or similar, but great for making short journeys on wet days pleasant! Buy one for the cyclist in your life

    Bottomline:

    Cheap, works, simple, LIGHT, weatherproof - you just supply the umbrella....
