Gear: See cell calls while biking

phoneIf you have a hard time digging around for your cell phone while bicycling, the Timbuk2 Goody Box top tube pack comes in handy.

You can use it to stash your phone and other small items and you can get to them without getting off your bike.

It’s a nylon pack with a waterproof liner. The clear external smart phone pocket lets you see if calls are coming in.

Cost: $35; seen at REI.
