Spinning with BRADA

Materials: BRADA laptop support, PVC pipe/tee, nuts/bolts, hacksaw, sand paper, drill

Recently purchased a indoor bike and wanted the ability to read at decent angle or use a tablet (really helps the time fly!). Had the BRADA laptop support lying around, but it didn’t quite fit the bill (too low of an angle angle unstable).

All I did was cut a small segment of 1 1/2″ PVC in half for the front ‘feet’ supports to prevent the BRADA from slipping down and 2 PVC Ts connect to each other with 1″ PVC to make the back support to give it just the right angle.

All pieces are secured to the BRADA using short/small nuts and bolts.

The grips on the bike handles make this apparatus surprisingly stable.

    Is it just me or are the handlebars on backwards? Could it be redesigned with the bars facing the other direction (I often change positions on my stationary bike out of boredom)?

      they are backwards, nice catch…it helps when you want to ride more upright…the handle bars have limited up and down adjustment
