Lets’ face it — cycling is geeky enough with Lycra, weird cycling shoes and helmets so dorky they look like they were designed by population-control advocates — it doesn’t need the added panache of a Bluetooth speaker bungied to the handlebars.
An since riding around sans-music is simply unacceptable, I’m stuck with sticking earbuds or canalphones in my ears — which can be dangerous and illegal. But check out this new $50 bicycle mount released today for the tiny FoxL v2 Bluetooth speaker from Soundmatters. Like the speaker itself ($200 for the Bluetooth version, $170 without Bluetooth) it’s pretty pricey. But it’s just small enough to be practical for riding around with — assuming the tiny package produces decent sound.
