VIA FERRATA is a short film about the first descent of a fixed-rope climbing-route on a Mountainbike. Christoph Thoresen filmed my bikeride in the amazing Brenta Dolomites with a drone. Bocchette Alte was not ridden. At Via Ferrata Benini, Vidi and Sentiero Orsi I rode >90% of all the downhill-sections. It was one of the best rides I ever had, especially the run down into the valley when the Via Ferrata was done and the filming was finished.
There are already plenty of Bike Phone Mounts on the market so this is nothing new. However as many smartphone owners might relate to – when you are running GPS + music apps on your phone (among everything else running in the background) you soon run out of battery in the middle of nowhere on a half day bike excursion. This sucks.
So I set out to find or create the best bike mount USB charger. This search led me to a great little device from Bike2Power called iBikeCharge which is exactly that – a bike mounted USB charger that works with all devices and mounts to a bike stem or frame.

This works great if you already have a bike mount for your phone. If you don’t already have a bike mount for your phone Bike2Power (who makes the bike mount usb charger above) has you covered with a great solution that fits both needs – a bike phone mount with charger.
Bike Phone Mount with Charger
The iBikeConsole Power Plus is not only a weather and shock resistant bike mount for your phone – it charges it at the same time with a certified 3,000 mAh Extended Battery. This battery gives you 2.2x the use of your phone while on your next trip. They make the bike phone mounts with chargers for a few of the most popular smartphones on the market including the Samsung Galaxy and iPhone series.
Looks like these are only available for a week so jump on them when you can. Made popular by the “Keep Calm and Carry On” meme this shirt features the slogan “Keep Calm and Bike On“. Where does the “Keep Calm…” saying come from anyway?
Keep Calm and Carry On is a catchphrase that originally appeared on a World War II-era British public safety poster. After one of the original posters was recovered and placed in a British bookshop in 2000, the inspirational message was shared online, sparking a series of image macros centered around the phrasal template “Keep Calm and X.” – via knowyourmeme
Well now you know. And you can get it with a bike saying now. .
If you’ve landed on this page you’ve likely run into the problem that all new Jambox owners run into… Okay, this is the coolest gadget I’ve bought in awhile… but How do I switch the source on my Jambox? That’s something they don’t cover in the Jambox Manual.
The Jambox streams media audio over what’s called the A2DP channel and that channel can only be connected to one device at a time (though it can be paired with up to 8 devices). In order to switch the Jambox from one device to another you need to disconnect it from the first device and then connect it to the second device. You do not need to unpair it.
You’ve likely run into this if you have multiple iPhones in your home. Or maybe you want to switch your Jambox pairing from your iPhone to your iPad.
How To Switch Source On Jambox
Switch power off Jambox
Turn bluetooth off on the two devices you want to switch between
Switch on Jambox – it will automatically start looking for a device to pair with
Turn bluetooth on on the device you want to pair with
Click on Jawbone Jambox to pair your device with the Jambox
Now you just need to throw the Jambox in your Jambox Case and you are ready to roll.
The one big bummer about Big Jambox? It’s not too easy to carry around. Sure, you could spend $50 on the carrying case, but even that doesn’t allow you to enjoy a hands-free experience where you can “jam” on the go.
