finally found a set of amplified external speakers to use with my portable cd player so i can enjoy music while riding solo but not cover my ears with head phones. but i'm having a hard time figuring out how to safely secure them.
i ride a vision r40 recumbent, it has a trek back rack on it. whether i use my camel bak mule or the back pack with the camel bak classic in it they are both attached behind the seat by running the straps through the seat cover straps. the speakers will not fit in the mesh pockets in either the back pack or the camel bak. and the seat bag that vision offers will not work either.
what i need is a way to safely secure the speakers to the back rack or bike. or a back pack or bag that can be attached behind the seat the way i mentioned above, with big enough mesh pockets for the speakers to fit in.
here is a link to the kind of speakers i purchased. despite their size they are really light.
radio shack does offer a foldable speaker that can out put the kind of volume and sound i am after if i can not find anything with large enough pockets. here is the link to that.
i'd rather use the speakers with one on each side if possible.
also a economical solution is what i am after as well. i'll only listening to music during solo rides. club rides, oranised rides, etc i'l leave the cd player and speakers at home. so i realy can not see spending a lot of money on say a top of the line messanger bag, etc. lets keep the cost below $30.00 if possible.
p.s. and please no lectures on listening to music while riding. i've made the decision to do so, this is the safest way possible to do this, short of using head phones.
