Cycling bib has built-in MP3 player

The ultimate in race music.

Pearl Izumi

As clothing with built-in gadget controls is becoming increasingly common, from mini-skirts to pinstriped suits , the variety of tech-friendly sportswear has expanded exponentially. But you know the concept is truly valid when it's taken seriously by bicyclists.

The "MicroSensor MP3 Bib" from Pearl Izumi goes a step further than most wired apparel, which usually includes only controls sewn into the fabric. ProductDose says this cycling bib actually includes an integrated 512MB MP3 player along with its embedded controls, which are strategically placed for easy access so you won't kill yourself while riding--unless, of course, you keep the volume so high that you can't hear horns and sirens.
