This is so simple - and it works! My bike group maps and direction lists can usually be folded down to 14 sheet or smaller - and this is just the ticket for keeping that in view and handy. A bigger sheet of paper would probably flap annoyingly in the wind - but this eliminates the plastic map carrier - that would cover my computer and otherwise not quite fit on the bar of my main road bike ('11 Jamis Xenith Endura 1). The guys who jury rig clothes pin holders are going to be jealous!
What a handy little clip. My club uses direction sheets for each ride and I
Always kept them in my jersey pocket. Hard to get out and read
While riding. With this handy clip, all I have to do is look down and there is my directions.
the locking clip wont let even the smallest sheet blow away in the wind.
I put my cue sheet in a ziplock bag anchored to two of these clips. The sheet doesn't flap around and is well placed for quick reference. I tested the product on a bus&bike ride at freeway speeds-map stayed secure. This is a great product if you don't have a handlebar bag.
Agreed! If you're on a ride that requires a cue sheet, these clips are essential (unless you have another form of map case). In the rain, you can put your cue sheet in a re-sealable baggie and then clip it.
This is a great little clip to hold maps when on an EVENT Ride.. It keeps it in front of you to glance at easily without reaching into your back pocket to retrieve the map that could be slightly soggy from preservation . I would like it better if it had a plastic sleeve to slide the map in so it wouldn't blow in the wind making the sides flip up too much and sometimes blow out of the clip or tear out of it from a furious head wind. For the price, I would recommend it,, it is better than the back pocket idea.
I use the clip to hold maps or directions I've written out when cycling - especially when trying a new route. Whether you put the map in plastic or just clip it on as paper, the clip never, ever, lets go. Come wind or rain, it is amazing.
