That's quite a weekend job. I suppose it saves on your wrists, and they do most of the work, but still.

Most recent research I can find:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22124445


Kinesio tape (KT) is an elastic therapeutic tape used for treating sports injuries and a variety of other disorders. Chiropractor, Dr Kenso Kase, developed KT taping techniques in the 1970s. It is claimed that KT supports injured muscles and joints and helps relieve pain by lifting the skin and allowing improved blood and lymph flow. The profile of KT rose after the tape was donated to 58 countries for use during the 2008 Olympic Games, and was seen on high-profile athletes. Practitioners are asking whether they should use KT over other elastic adhesive tapes. The aim of this review was to evaluate, using meta-analysis, the effectiveness of KT in the treatment and prevention of sports injuries. Electronic databases including SPORTDiscus, Scopus, MEDLINE, ScienceDirect and sports medicine websites were searched using keywords 'kinesio taping/tape'. From 97 articles, ten met the inclusion criteria (article reported data for effect of KT on a musculoskeletal outcome and had a control group) and were retained for meta-analyses. Magnitude-based inferences were used to assess clinical worth of positive outcomes reported in studies. Only two studies investigated sports-related injuries (shoulder impingement), and just one of these involved injured athletes. Studies attending to musculoskeletal outcomes in healthy participants were included on the basis that these outcomes may have implications for the prevention of sporting injuries. The efficacy of KT in pain relief was trivial given there were no clinically important results. There were inconsistent range-of-motion outcome results, with at least small beneficial results seen in two studies, but trivial results in two other studies across numerous joint measurements. There was a likely beneficial effect for proprioception regarding grip force sense error, but no positive outcome for ankle proprioception. Seven outcomes relating to strength were beneficial, although there were numerous trivial findings for quadriceps and hamstrings peak torque, and grip strength measures. KT had some substantial effects on muscle activity, but it was unclear whether these changes were beneficial or harmful. In conclusion, there was little quality evidence to support the use of KT over other types of elastic taping in the management or prevention of sports injuries. KT may have a small beneficial role in improving strength, range of motion in certain injured cohorts and force sense error compared with other tapes, but further studies are needed to confirm these findings. The amount of case study and anecdotal support for KT warrants well designed experimental research, particularly pertaining to sporting injuries, so that practitioners can be confident that KT is beneficial for their athletes.

Personal opinion (no facts):
When I first saw it- it seemed interesting- no more tubigrip/ neoprene braces.
The more I read/heard about its method of 'action'- the less convinced I became.
Then I changed my technique for running, shifted my cleat position, and lost some weight and the problems went.

Won't work with a brake, and each one needs to be custom fitted to suit the seatstay angle. Topeak Beam Racks have to come in 3 versions to be universal, imagine how pleased a shop would be if they had to stock 10 versions of that hipster beer carrier.

not disputing that it's impractical, but each of the wood colours is a different shape, so 3 versions like Topeak.

Then as many versions as there are lengths of d-lock shackle for it to work as pictured.

it's the diameter of the lock I'd worry about, bit too loose and your beer would tip over going round the first corner...

The device is designed for a specific, which "lock" in place when you join the lock with the barrier.

Precisely; it's specific to a lock, and specific to a frame geometry. Forget inventory of 3 models, it's going to be more like 300. As a bespoke item, I suppose it's feasible, but it's hard to see how hitting a thin niche with something which has to be both bespoke for every punter and price competitive with Topeak is going to make anybody a living.
