    On my Ebuyer newsletter today was this bike speaker

    Wondered if anyone had one or had an opinion on them? Not sure I would be keen sharing my music with the world but it does negate the earphones argument.

    Interesting idea - I'm amazed no-one's come up with it before. Personally I wouldn't want tunes while cycling, but for commuting it might be cool (depending on your musical tastes!) and safer than riding with 'phones in.

    "Built in amplifier and stereo loudspeaker"
    I'd like to know what's "stereo" about a single speaker though... if you run through all the pics on the site, it clearly only has one!

    ColinJ It's a puzzle ...

    It's bad enough having car drivers blast us with their choice of music without us starting to do it to each other! :biggrin:

    Nah, he's probably got a massive bottle dynamo hidden behind the bass bin... that's why he's adopting that strange position - to overcome the [Staines] massive resistance. :biggrin:

    Absolutely, keep your bloody choice of music to yourself...

    I generally hate the idea of boom boxes emanating from cars but given that earphones distract and disorientate (me) I quite like the idea of this. However, it must be able to give out a bit of wellie because over the wind and all would you actually hear much? Something tells me it might be more for a lazy ride around the park and hence a gimmick...

    Do you guys remember those radio/lights that used to be for sale yearrrss ago? Again, attached to the handle bars, but just an FM radio I think... Retro. Wish I had one!
