On-bike navigation and storage.

The Timbuk2 Goody Box carries your smartphone in an interactive fashion, protected by a touchscreen-compatible cover for viewing maps, responding to texts, and looking up valuable information. It's available in two sizes, allowing you to deck out your favorite bikes with utilitarian storage that's handy on morning commutes, daily errands, and trips to the local Thai food joint.

The Goody Box secures to the top tube of your favorite city cruiser or road bike, making it a great choice for viewing step-by-step directions without pulling out your phone. Multiple slots for credit cards and IDs lend additional storage, allowing you to ditch your wallet before hitting the town. Also, there's a roomy compartment underneath the phone holster for tossing your keys, spare cash, and pocket-sized items.

Awesome for keeping phone in reach.

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Bought this for my buddy who just got his first road bike. He rides it mostly for leisure and commutes a little. He likes that he can throw his phone in it and still access the phone without having to pull it out. It holds a lot and keeps it all in reach.

Great idea for some frames

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I chose the medium, and could not use it on my gravel bike without knees hitting it. In addition, the "belts" that attach it to the top and head tubes do not cinch tight enough, so it always tilts to one side.

With a different frame geometry and a thicker top-tube, you could probably get away with it. I'm planning to try it on a no-squish touring mountain bike, thinking it will work quite a bit better there.

Urban commute-ready!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I just got this for Christmas and I love it! It's nice to have my keys, inhaler and phone in such a convenient location. I ride a really small frame (48cm) and it fits great on my center bar, no knee contact. The goody box is roomy enough for me to keep a bar in, to help keep me from getting hangry on longer commute days. The box could use a latching system to give me more confidence when I have to hang it up on the Max train - but it's new and hasn't flipped open yet - fingers crossed.

some good ideas doesn't work for me

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

My samsung edge fit in the phone sleeve well. The top flap stays shut with a Velcro tab. If the bike tips over or you crash that top is going to fly open. I ordered the larger version to fit my phone. Unfortunately, it is so long I could not pedal my bike without hitting my knees on the pack. I returned it. It may work on for some people on some frames.

Carry your phone during training

    Great for road biking, I would not recommend it for mountain bike because the velcro used to keep it in place isn't extremely safe.
