    Mounting a Bluetooth Speaker to Bicycle?

    Hello, I want to mount a Braven BRV-1 bluetooth speaker to my bicycle (which is a pretty generic beach cruiser). This particular speaker does not come with any hardware to support a mount. Does anyone have any ideas or experience for mounting things to their bike? Note the speaker would have to be easily detached from the bike as well to recharge. Thanks in advance for your help, I'd really like to figure this out.

    The BRV-1:

    Cute idea but i'm thinking of something that may clamp or grip the speaker somehow, not sure if it exists.

    Take a couple of the screws out of the speaker grill and fab up a sheet metal hook that you can zip tie to the handlebars.

    Only issue is with those velcro straps is the speaker can still slide around and fall over i fear.

    IDK do you know what is inside the case that you would hit when you drill a hole?


    Are you any kind of fabricator? & have a home shop to make things ?


    I dont need a recording, I get looks, though, when I am whistling the Head-tunes I know, as I ride .
