Audio Bike music system reviewed
The Daily Peloton has a review of the “Audio Bike” music system specifically designed for the biker that likes to train to music, but also considerate of others, and is safety conscious. The system consists of a mount, speakers for each of the handlebar ends. The speakers have batteries that need to be charged, but do look pretty unobtrusive on the bike. The mount looks pretty useful as well, especially if you have an iPhone or iPod touch.
From the review:
Riding alone, I did feel a bit self-conscious pedaling through the city with LCD Sound system blasting out of my handlebars but out in the country it was great to have music for climbing. There’s nothing like DJ Girl Talk’s mash-ups to get the cadence up and ease the pain of the incline. Luckily my rides all took place during dry weather because my iPod isn’t rain-ready and the Audio Bike is exposed to the elements.
Apparently, the Audio Bike will also work well with phones with GPS or Map My Ride due to the location of the mount.
At $50, it’s not horribly expensive, but does require some installation. The Audio Bike pretty much competes with the iHome iH85 at that price range.
I could see this system being really good for a bike on a trainer in the winter, and is far better than wearing headphones (argh, not good…) while out on the streets.
