Cyclists Will Love This New Umbrella, Provided They Also Like Crashing And Hate Dignity

Sure, this umbrella (ella, ella) is a little innovative. It would allow you to ride your bike without having to worry about it acting as one of those parachutes on the back of drag-racing cars that slows you down. But riding a bike is exercise, and when you exercise, you get really hot. I can't imagine draping a plastic dome over your head will make you any less hot.

In fact, I would expect that thing to steam up like a car at Make-Out Point, causing you to run into most any obstacle that you encounter along the way. The oddest line in this article? The fact that the umbrella comes in two colors, clear and BLACK. Black doesn't sound terribly safe, dude. In fact, it sounds like they want people to cruise around cities on bikes while wearing black hoods on their heads. Which is actually probably more dangerous than riding a bike without an umbrella. 

However, if you like to live dangerously, you can pick this guy up for about $50, though it ships from England, because, well, it's always raining there. Enjoy your dry tomb.
