Good investment – Retractable Steel Bicycle Umbrella Holder Mount Bracket (2-Joint) Reviews

posted by merenguele on 11/07/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
It is as shown in pictures, 2 joints and a good clamp capability.
Because of its joints it can achieve a very good position in the easy way (good easy-fast turn bolts in the joints)
Cons:
Mine has a dent in one of its tubes, I don't know if it came that way or if it was my child that let it fall to the ground. I say this all to point that the metal material is tougt to hold an umbrella, but is weak for a lateral hit.
The other main cons is about the fixing to the handle bar, because it is made for bicycling it has not fast mounting-dismounting capability (for my baby car)
Other:
In my country I've never seen nobody taking and umbrella and riding a bicycle, so it's very rare here and people love it, but not for cycling...
I use it on my baby car to hold a rain umbrella because she hates the plastic shield.
Everybody that see it ask for it!
Bottomline:
I will change the fixing bolts to another easy turn off kind so I will be able to mount it fast.
