Want to listen to music while on a bike outing but without the worry of buying an expensive radio set and biffing it breaking your investment? Well this is the solution! Its very easy to make your yourself using parts around your house. Mostly everyone has things at home they can turn into something else. It just takes thinking out of the box. I came up with this Idea when my brother and I were scraping an old computer monitor for its CFL light tubes to install into another one. After having got out the light tubes, we looked through the rest of the case to see if there was anything to use. Other than some small components there was these two little speakers in their own boxes. How cool is that! So I pulled them out and figured I could use them somewhere I don't have music... thus I eventually came to the idea to put them on the bike and I suddenly had a awesome product for FREE!
Step 1: Take a Gander Around Your Place
To recycle/upcycle/rebuild something into something else, you gotta figure out what you want to build. For instance if you got old sock while a hole in it laying around, don't throw it away! Reuse it! But where? Well you can cut it at the hole and now you can use it as this:
-Sunglasses protective holder
-Slide it over a rusty pole
-Slide it over your bike handle bars if they are real hot from the sun or hot gear shift in the car
-Or install it on your orbital sander to be a dust catcher (this one is in my other instructable)
You see its not that hard, just gotta think outside the box of its intended use. Now for the speakers I used, I pulled out of an old computer monitor. Other places you might find speakers: Kids toys, old small radios, Greeting cards, Cell phones, Land line phones, Tv's, broken laptops or portable dvd players, really anything that has small speakers or makes music or sound. They all work with the same theory, which has two wires connected to them. The white monitor in the picture is the same monitor I got the speakers out of, this one is a spare but the exact same one.
