    I go for a whole one man band scenario. It's really hard to do the knees at the same time as cycling, but it definitely has a certain satisfaction.

    I find a cathedral organ usually works quite well downhill as you can go quite fast and can usually been seen and heard for miles around, especially when christmas decorations are put on it.
     
  6. Electric guitar, with 100 watt Marshall balanced on the rear rack.

    I'd opt for the same as RT, except mine goes to 11. You see, most blokes will be playing at 10. You’re on 10, all the way up...Where can you go from there? Nowhere. What I do, is if I need that extra push over the cliff...Eleven. One louder.

    Can't you just make 10 louder?
     
  9. These go up to 11.





    :blush:
     
  10. Actually, with a 100 watt Marshall, just below 1 is loud enough for most of our gigs.

    Knee tremblers while cycling? I'm sure that the other party involved would get very annoyed with being kneed in the face 90 times a minute...

    I prefer not to supply my own music.

    I can always listen to that from the chav in the souped up golf/escort, behind me.

    Why's the sound system usually worth more than the car?

    I like to experiment with varying the number of ice-cream sticks I put near my spokes, so as to get different beats and rhythms. And when they break, I simply buy another ice-cream. Bit of a bummer if they only sell Magnums' though! :blush:
    Otherwise, if I don't shower I can hum a bit.
