So, I decided that since this is 2016, there should be a way to mount a laptop on my bike, so that I can answer email and perform other tasks, while I get some aerobic conditioning at the same time.
So I found two products on Amazon that allow you to do this, the Surfshelf and another one which was cost more than 2x as much. Both use different methods of mounting and after exchanging emails with both companies, I determined that the Surfshelf had the highest probability of working.
When it came, I laid out all components and found myself with an interesting puzzle. My bike is probably not the ideal configuration for the Surfshelf in that there are many rounded tubes, as opposed to angular shapes. Fortunately, it was easy to get Randy, the engineering genius whom both invented the Surfshelf and provides personalize attention to every customer who asks for help.
He gave me some general guidelines which ultimately led me to a configuration that worked for me. While I could have used the straps that were included, what worked best for me were a combination of my own velcro straps and plastic ties.
The shelf consists of two main components. The there is a surprisingly small "base" to to which you'll attach the "desk" which is where your laptop is going to be. The ingenious design allows the desk to be positioned at different angles. So I was able to set it up at the angle that was parallel to the floor and at an orientation at which I can type comfortable and...even use a mouse using an aluminum mouse pad that I was able to partially slide under my help HP Folio 13 UltraBook (also purchased on Amazon).
The finished product looks pretty organic in that the Surfshelf blends in with my bike as though it was standard equipment. With my laptop now attached, the Surfshelf is stable and solid enough that I am able to comfortably type emails as go at a fairly fast pace.
This is a great product that has pretty much brought me up a notch in terms of fitness activities.
So, I was super thrilled to find this on Amazon! But, I wanted to contact Randy before I ordered, because I did not know if the SurfShelf would fit my elliptical. He answered all my questions promptly. [ProForm 850 Space Saver elliptical - the one with the olive green trim (apparently there are 2 completely different ProForm 850s out there)].
Easy set up. Just follow the very well-written and detailed instructions included. Plenty sturdy. I love it! In fact, I am using it right now to type this review! VERY HAPPY with this product, and the personalized customer service! And, I must add that when my programmed workout is over, I now stay on the elliptical even longer. Used to I couldn't wait for that bell to ding signalling "time's up!" =)
Great job, Randy! My only regret is that I did not invent this before you did! :))
