We’ve seen a few camera mounts that provide that “rear view” for riders and at last week’s Interbike trade show the Hindsight 35 was one that truly could turn heads – or rather keep riders from turning their heads. This offers a seat post mounted digital camera that provides the view from behind as a handlebar mounted display allows riders to see with just a downward glance.
This one further stands out as it records video in a continuous five minute loop, stopping automatically if the bike is laid over. This could help those involved in a spill see if a driver was at fault!
And since this system provides a big 3.5-inch transflective LCD , it can double as a cyclometer and track speed, trip distance, odometer, stopwatch and time, while heart rate and cadence are optional. Not including those features isn’t just left to hindsight it seems.
