    I used to. But to be honest I like to hear my bike, so I don't anymore.

    Hmm, well I don't on urban stuff. Can't hear cars that way. I also like to hear my fellow riders. I've tried riding with music. I just like yelling stuff at my friends that are up the trail.

    You ride with music in an urban setting? Good luck.
    If anything it would be a lot safer lisetning to music on the trails rather than on the road.

    Never when I ride on the roads, but I do when I'm on the trails. But then again, I still don't play the music very high. I like to hear what's going on around me.

    As a side note, I watched one episode of the Lance Chronicles, and Lance was talking about how isolated he felt training in the mountains (I believed it was in Spain?), and just before he took off for his ride, he put on earphones that were connected to his ipod.

    I like damns idea. On the neck full blast. Just hope the cord doesn't get caught on stuff.

    Any distraction on a bike can potentially be a deadly distraction.

    Never listen to music when on the bike. With the stuff I ride, one can get seriously injured or killed due to lack of attention.

    Oakley is prototyping a sunglass design with an integrated MP3 player.

    Problem is it might be restricted to only playing Sheryl Crow songs.

    Well aren't you charming?

    Anyways, I dont bring my MP3 player along with me in fear of crashing and breaking something that expensive. About the "getting the wires caught on stuff" part, all you do is put the MP3 player wherever then pull the headphones up through your shirt/jacket/whatever then put them on that way the cord is inside you clothing and pretty darn safe.

    Those Oakleys are going for about $400, from what I remember when I read the announcement in the business section of the Chicago Sun-Times on Saturday. Definitely not worth it when you can get the glasses and the ipod separately for less!

    Raiyn I love you man, but what's the big deal. So they started the discussion over, don't read it if you don't want to rehash it. Don't get all forum snobby... Think of how many times you've had the same discussion over and over with your friends... For example, my buddies and i have had the oral v. missionary debate at least a hundred times.

    That might get censored....AWAY......

    Oh and i ride with my ipod when i commute downtown...Too much ambient noise for me to hear individual cars anyway. Its not a distraction, but more a driving force. Something's gotta get me to go to work.

    $400? But wait... these are Oakleys! So that's a pretty good deal... only $100 for an mp3 player.

    Personally speaking, I would just as soon have them ditch the mp3 player and integrate a nice full featured FRS radio with a wireless miniature mic I could clip to the chinstrap of my helmet. That to me would be much more useful.

    Same here, but I think I might get one of these.
    Not available til next month. Has a radio and a simple bike computer.
    Too bad they don't have another level higher up, with HR monitor, more sophisticated bike computer with cadence alarms etc and an MP3 player..
