    Where do you get Handlebar route holder?

    I kept seeing handlebar route holders at the Bikefest and I want one. Can anybody tell me where to find one?

    I use a cheapo oversized spring loaded clip from the "Dollar Store" (package of 6 asst. sizes for $1.) You know, the kind indended to close an opened bag of potato chips to keep them fresh. I just ZipTie it to the stem or mesh top of my Bento Box.

    I use nearly the same thing as Bone Head. A couple of small binder clips (courtesy of my office supplies cabinet at work) and some cable ties.
    I also bought a packet of 4" x 5" photo lamination sleeves. I take my route sheets and reduce the print size, print them front and back on 4 x 5 cards, and laminate them. They're easier to read, don't flop about in the breeze, and they're weatherproof.

    I like the lamination idea. I usually just put them in a zip-top sandwich or quart size baggie. Like Clifton said, they do tend to flap in a breeze.

    I made one out of a piece of plastic canvis from my wife's craft supplies, a zip lock bag, and a piece of velcro. The plastic canvis gives it enough stiffness to mount to the stem and the ziplock bag keeps the cue sheet from getting ripped to shreds in the wind and rain.

    I have several - I bought them at event rides. They are usually offered along with jerseys and t-shirts. I am surprised your LBS doesn't carry something. They are cheap little things, about $5. However, when in doubt, a medium size binder clip works great!!

    The other benefit to lamination is you can keep them in a file for riding the same route at a later date. Just pull out your cue sheets and get rolling.

    I've seen posted that some folks have hooked up an info tube to their handlebars. (can't find the pic of one on a bike)

    You can put the que sheet in and turn it forward as you pass stuff. Seemed like it was nifty idea but never got to try it since it wasn't friendly to the recumbent handlebars I use.

    I'll check my LBS but I've never seen anything but the rather large touring bags that have map holders. The ones I saw last weekend were I'm sure not very expensive but looked really handy. I may well have to resort to some of the more creative suggestions here. I don't get many points for creativity. At my best I've learned to hang out with smart friends

    Made from a sheet protector, a rubber band, and a piece of 3" book tape holding them together.

    I picked mine up at an REI store:

    http://www.rei.com/product/637969

    I've been pretty happy with it so far. It can be used as a 8 1/2x11 holder, or can fold up and used as a smaller size.
