I found this product for sale--the i-Ride. It's a small speaker system and
bike mount for iPod.

Can't be any worse than a car stereo. I would just strap my portable
speakers/iPod into the webbing on my trunk bag, but if you just gots to have
tunes....

The question I have is where or what do you do with the IPOD or MP3 player
or whatever.
They just have a earphone plug on the unit so the player has to be mounted
or affixed to the bike somewhere else.

Old school. I MacGyvered something like that way back in the eighty's
Now I just tuck a pair of small amplified walkman speakers into the side
pouches of my handlebar bag.

Looks like Apple's new iPod shuffle could come in very handy for this
purpose.

Two reactions:

I'm really going to risk a $300 iPod on a crappy plastic mount like
that? NFW!

If they're loud enough to be heard over street noise, they're louder
than I want to hear as I ride past. Just what we need; the boom-box
wars moving to bikes.



There's enough noise in the world now. Don't make more.
