    ipod dock for bicycling

    Anyone have a portable iPod sound system that can be put on a bike (weather resistant would be a big plus)? I'm looking for one. Doesn't seem to be much out there.

    Guy I work with is a huge biker. Does Ragbrai every year. He has one that is bike specific and it is made by iHome. He doesn't remember where he got it, but thought that might help you.

    I see that one on many websites. It appears IHome quit making it. there are some sites still selling it. Most have it as "out of stock". I wanted to find something locally. Otherwise, I might order the iHome unit.

    Check this product out. It fits in a water bottle holder. I have one and know about 10 others that do and it is great.

    Buddy of mine has one and it's a pretty good unit. Please play it at a level so that you can still hear what is going on around you. We don't need any more cycling casualties.

    This one is good. Like Velo said, use it responsibly. Whatever your favorite song is, it's not worth getting hit by a car.

    We ride trails.

    This is the one I bought. It appears iHome quit making this unit. I found an online seller. This seems to be what everyone buys. Not sure why they quit making it.
