Bicycle iPod Speaker: Love It or Leave It?

I'm trying to envision a day not so rainy as today so that I can get excited about this Bicycle iPod Speaker ($50) from Urban Outfitters.

I know the moment the sun peeks around the clouds, I can envision myself riding my bike (um, the bike I don't yet have) and grooving to my iPod. But then . . . do I see myself annoying people?

I get enough cars driving by my apartment bumping music that I can only imagine how I felt about someone pedaling past my window rocking out to Lil' Wayne. Hmm.

What do you think of a bike iPod speaker?

i would say no, only because i mean if you have an ipod you most likely have headphones (:) ) so i don't get why you just wouldn't use the headphones???

Good idea to me... in a busy college town, there are scooters and bikes everywhere, and it's pretty dangerous to have headphones in.

I use a recreation path in my town, and there are a ton of people walking, running, biking, bladeing etc... and yes, its very annoying when someone has a speaker on their bike, or are walking with their mp3 or phone speaker on to play music. I don't want to hear anyone's music outside, on a train, on a bus, in an enclosed area etc... use earbuds.

First, this is a mere speaker we're talking about, not a trunkful of woofers and tweeters. I doubt this is really going to cause noise pollution. Secondly, who are these people that may be annoyed? Drivers? I'm sure drivers won't be distracted and depending where you live there are probably not that many pedestrians to be bothered in the first place. I have tried to use my building block speaker on my bike, but it's not powerful enough of overcome the ambient noise. Anything that might have some more pep sounds good to me.

Meh. Unless you are riding a completely desolate road, I vote no. No one else wants to hear your music. I find it annoying and rude. The arguement of course is that people will say earphones are unsafe... well turn down the music and don't use noise cancelling ones outside..Big no!
