I pretty much only smoke when friends come home for break. I spend all my money on bikes, so I don't have much leftover.

I'll see about it. I want to give it a look before I put it in the attic until spring. I still need to gather the rest of the components I have planned for it.

Actually there are 2 lights. ☺ The device next to the light is a combo horn and light, but I only use it as a horn.

The bluetooth speaker works well for its small size. I can hear my music clearly while on busy roads and while wearing ear muffs. It's called the "Buckshot". Got it at Best Buy.

The light, the "Cycle Torch", is also great. Really bright and far reaching light. Street signs light up all the way down the road. Also like how it glows red when the battery is running low.

Have the regular Boombot as well just had a lot of issues with Bluetooth connectivity. This one has a 2gb hard drive built right in so you can put some music right on it. Not as loud as the regular Boombot, but is much clearer which makes it sound better in my opinion.

The only problem with that is it is only bluetooth so for those with old school non-bluetooth iPods you cannot use that one. Ideally though I would love to mod it so I can put a slightly larger HD in there so I can use it for touring and have an extra long mix. For my last tour my mix was over 3Gb and I would love to triple the length of it and then not need the iPod.

However in addition to better sound this one is IPX7 rated so it is waterproof to a 1 meter which is nice for not worrying about purposes. So if I can mod it it might just be poifect.

The Pro doesn't for sure which sucks because I don't want the boring non-pro which doesn't have as good audio and no HD.

Have you heard the non pro? It is definitely not a slouch as far as a speaker goes. I was extremely happy with the sound quality of mine. I think that if you play around with the EQ of the connected device you can get a pretty good sound out of it.

It certainly is no slouch but if I can get better audio, I would like to go better audio. I may end up with the non-pro but the pro has the HD and that is also attractive.

Race Face Chester pedals for the Honzo. Should match the blue of the green/blue fade pretty well. Gonna have to get some green grips, too.

R450/formula/x2 folding. Can't wait to get my old wheels off and get these on. So scummed and crapped up, thought I was going to be able to make it through the winter before replacing but no chance. Going to get another set built from retro right before spring for my 2nd bike.
