I like to listen to tunes while riding my bicycle.  Some people wear headphones, but those are illegal on city streets and dangerous even on bicycle trails.  So I decided to mount an mp3 speaker system to my handlebars and ended up with something that is really adaptable to carrying any small electronics on a bike.

Step 1: The 'dashboard' - a bird suet feeder

I was looking for anything that I could use to mount the portable speaker system onto my handlebars.  Although the cylindrical shaped speaker system looked like it would be easy to attach with cable ties or similar, it really wasn't.  So I browsed though the local Big Lots and spied this Suet Feeder for birds.  It's intended to hold a chunk of animal fat for birds to peck at.  It's plastic-coated wire.

I have since seen these same wire suet feeders at Petco near the wild bird seed, so I assume they're pretty widely available at large pet supply stores.
