Nice product but i have an old ATD - Ross Mt. Hood -

      Comments about Nashbar Reader Rack:

      As I previously noted, nashbar bike reader doesn't fit my old ATD - Ross Mt Hood - or more specifically over the brake levers on the top of the handlebars so unfortunately I couldn't use it - but it seems quite nice for those bikes it fits. So, I got a microphone tripod pole and ipad holder and it works perfectly and any newspapers I read I just wrap over handlebars while doing my indoor biking on a stationary bike.

          Comments about Nashbar Reader Rack:

          The product is almost perfect. I needed a reading area on my bike for when I spin indoors. I love to multitask so this was the perfect solution, however the hinges are just not that sturdy enough to hold up a 13" Macbook well enough... Unless I try tightening the hinges! Perhaps that would work but overall, great product. Thank you!

              Well made product Could be deeper for this who still read old-fashioned books rather than on smartphones, Kindles, iPads, etc. Description reads, "Mounts easily to almost every bike out there." From other reviews and my experience, not accurate. However, that being said, put the attachment thingee out to pasture and use 3 - 4 wire ties in its place, and you're good to go. The attachment design needs to be rethought since, even if you have the perfect bar, it appears the attachment wouldn't be too secure.

              Comments about Nashbar Reader Rack:

              I use this on my training bike to hold TV controllers,phone, iPad etc. I like most of the unit is solid. I do not like how it attaches to the bike. This is it weakest point. After many attempts, some electrical tape around my handlebar parts, I was able to get the unit to stay on. I would not trust it with a book however. Light items are OK. I may be able to figure something else out. I think another review talked about jamming a piece of wood though the section that hangs below the handle bar. Other than that, it works and does what it is advertised.

              excellent rack for ipad or book on my indoor mounted bike but required velcro straps to secure it. What came with it did not work for me.

                This is a well-constructed reading material holder that attaches easily to my flat-bar handlebars on a Specialized Sirrus. Attachment to the bike took all of thirty seconds. It holds my books or magazines securely.

                Wanted it for my stationary set in my basement. The mount system is not well designed. Works well only with thin books.

                      There are a lot of different products on the market for using your ipad or ereader while on the trainer. Those products are expensive. This is the perfect inexpensive solution to my boredom while cycling in my garage.
