Looks pretty cool. I wonder what king of battery it uses.

you would think that it would be waterproof. unfortunately, their website neither confirms nor denies this.

ernok, you're quite right; it's useless if you jave to worry about every puddle or a few snowflakes. Nice idea, though. I like the placement, it has the potential to sound better than the speakers-in-a-bottle-cage sort of bike speakers.

I love it. If it is waterproof and the batteries are manageable I want one. I wonder if it accepts any mp3 player.

Made for cyclists. Nice. However, the price is $149!!! I think I'll just jimmy rig a $15 unit instead.

I think I'd rather listen for what's happening on the road and for nature sounds.

I take a little FM/AM/SW radio on tour.... But I don't turn it on until I get to the campsite.

I took an iPod on the TA and sent it home the first week. I do have to admit that I kind of wished I had it at times in Kansas though. Kansas can be mind numbing.

Now that I have a shuffle that weighs just about nothing I might consider taking it loaded with audio books mostly for in camp. It would be lighter than one regular book, even with the charger. Any way I will stick with ear buds if I ever take it on tour.
