Suggestions requested on attaching Creative Travelsound to bicycle Answered
Hello. As someone who's moved to a bike friendly city, sold his car, learned the intricacies of mass transit... the thing that I miss most about my car is the sound system. Mind you, it was stock, but it was still good enough for me. Well that, and not getting wet when it rains and when the road is still wet. I'm not interested in being the obnoxious jerk at the stop light forcing a 1/4 block to listen all the bass I can afford, I'd like to put together a non-headphone sound system for my bike. I have pictures below of the the three components I have at hand. Jamis coda sport, creative travelsound battery powered speakers (which eats batteries like they are going out of style), and Zen V touch mp3 player. my goal is to have a personal stereo that is quickly detachable, yet secure, and potentially offering improved FM reception by 'hardwiring' an antenna to the frame. upon initial inspection, i suspect the easiest way would be to have a granny basket off the handlebars and just throw it into there. So that's my fallback plan. But there are some geniuses that peruse this site and I'm interested in how they'd attack this. two things to note- while my handlebars are flat, i've rotated the bar that holds them to a 45 degree angle. Also, the travelsound speakers are attached at the base that hinges with the battery pack. It's not that obvious in the picture. Thanks for the help with this.
