Warning: Not for use on an actual, moving bicycle.

It's tough to be a cycling enthusiast working a desk job. Instead of speeding down a bike trail, you’re stuck in one place for eight hours a day as your body deteriorates from prolonged sitting. But here’s a way to bring a bit of cycling style into the office.

Montreal-based design firm oopsmark has created a laptop stand from refurbished bicycle handlebars. It comes equipped with a leather cable-fastener to keep your charger and headphone wires in place, and non-slip grip pads to keep your laptop stable.

Best of all, the stand incorporates locally sourced and recycled goods. All the handlebars come from Rebicycle, a used bicycle shop in Montreal.

So if Excel spreadsheets are stressing you out, just grab the sides of this laptop stand. Close your eyes, and you'll be cruising down your favorite trail.
