If it is, it's really well done. Nashbar sells some ipod handlebar mounts. Even Harley has an ipod interface on their touring bike radios.

Didn't you see the SRAM release that came out on 1st of April? It's their new revolutionary integration stuff, kinda to compete against the Shimano Dual control shifter/brakes.

I'm happy SRAM thought of this actually, do you know how many times I have been apporaching a corner, at warp speed, needigng to brake but also needing to pick my nose?! I've come off many times with finger firmly up my nose and thanking god that I didn't stab my brain

Look up some of mx_599's recent posts. He's been struggalizing for some action. I have a feeling his avatar is more for his benefit than yours.
