FIRST LOOK: CRICKET BLUETOOTH BIKE SPEAKER
Tunes for your ride
If you are one of those riders who insists on listening to music while you ride but hate headphones and earbuds, the Cricket speaker was made for you. This small, rechargeable, Bluetooth-enabled speaker plays music from your phone and attaches cleanly to the special stem preload cap. Since it’s right in your face, music can be played at lower levels than with other speaker systems for less impact on other trail users. Plus, unlike with earbuds, you can hear your surroundings. An included cover provides a clean look when the speaker is removed, and the speaker turns on and off with a single, easy-to-access button. The Cricket Speaker retails for $39.
