Stereo speakers for your handlebars

Bike-mounted music devices are becoming a trend

Handlebar speakers

If this trend continues, handlebar stereos could become the next must-have accoutrement for bikers. Just the other day, we wrote of a frame-mounted MP3 player that's designed to withstand the elements. Then we saw a Ministry of Tech item about some handlebar-fastened portable speakers from Jisan Hitech. (One reader suggested that open-air music is preferable to headphones for reasons of safety and etiquette.)

As more gadgets are designed for bikes, the handlebar real estate is becoming a precious commodity. At this rate, bike handles may soon begin to resemble a jet instrument panel .
