    That is different. I'm not a big fan of loud music invading my space so that would bug me if they rolled by my home with the music blasting. Other than that to each his own.

    Mohan Samaroo, 19, is part of a mostly teenage crew in Richmond Hill, Queens, who lavish their time and money on bicycles outfitted with elaborate stereo systems.
    So many comments come to mind. Please! Do the work for me.

    OK, I'll give it a shot:

    At least the headphone haters can't complain!

    Wonder how they lock those things up.

    Bet they go really fast...downhill.

    What I'd love as a counterpoint to the idiots with stereos you can hear from miles off would be a sound damping field, like an inverted sound-cancelling headphone; I'd drive by and things would get quiet. I'd make the sound processor leave bird and insect sounds alone.

    I know it's not possible, but it'd be cool.

    Should we post this over in A&S to get a consensus on these guys' lane positioning?

    how can anyone get upset over a "heavy caribbean beat"?

    I wonder how they keep these bikes from getting stripped/stolen, especially in NYC? I guess if you make the bike 200lbs and can only be ridden at 3mph, it would be pretty tough to steal.

    And finally, I think it's better than buying a used ricer and tricking it out, but to each his own.

    The more I see it, the more I am glad that they are out on their bikes instead of loading all those speakers into a Cadillac or SUV like most people their age would be doing.

    Also it kinda remids me of the Scraper Bike Boiz

    These guys definitely are NOT weight weenies. Looks like they ripped off Menudo's stage sound system.

    It looks too top heavy for a good commuter rig. He needs to look into a Burley platform trailer for the back. They might be able to give him some tips on building his own in the Utility forum.

    Wow. The most I could ever generate was 1012 watts during a sprint. One guy got 3000 watts out of his. He must be super fast!

    Man, hauling all that with a single-speed BMX bike? These guys must have legs of steel. Plus...what's the psi rating of a typical BMX bike tire?

    Ha, funny. But if you're gonna carry all that weight, might as well carry something that's useful!



    Ok, maybe not.
