$24.99 RCA vibration proof from Walmart. Opened it up and I thought there would be some kind of belt clip and there wasn't.

Does anybody know a brand that sells beltclips with their port CD players?

Just put the player in your jersey pocket while you ride.

Oh that's right ... you're not fond of real cycling gear are you?

Nope. Golf or tee shirt and jean shorts down to the knees. No Castro District stuff here?

Maybe when I'm 65 with a big beer gut , I'll go down to the beach in my Speedo briefs...

That's such a horrible image to put into anyone's head.

Unfortunately, it's too close to the truth with many people old enough to know better.

Just buy a bloody iPod, it's not worth getting anything else. ESPECIALLY a $25 CD player. And besides, belt clips never hold very tight anyway, the thing would probably come loose, hit the ground, and shatter into a thousand pieces not 500m from home.

Pickup up a small fanny pack for a $1; probably for less at a garage sale. Works great for me.

Two options:

A Camelbak SlingShot



An Apple iPod Shuffle......Amazon.com has em for ~$99. Sign up for the Amazon Visa card and get $30 off. Take the 6 months interest-free to pay it off ($11.50 a month). Cancel the account.

Qualifies for free shipping to boot.

I put my belt-clipless cd player in my seat bag. I don't really know if that would work for you. I don't use headphones, I have 2 old computer speakers (non-powered) in the side pockets of my seat bag.

69/25 ~ 2 3/4

A Shuffle is gonna hold at least 7 or 8 CD's worth of music. No moving parts, light as a feather. In a pocket or round the neck. Never was an Apple fan but this thing rocks.
