In June we gave away an NYNE Cruiser Bluetooth Speaker to reader Paul. He reviewed the NYNE and sent along the following text and pictures. Thanks Paul.

This is a review of the NYNE Cruiser Bluetooth Speaker with bicycle mount.
I receive the NYNE Cruiser as a prize from BikeHacks.com for writing the winning Haiku in the NYNE Cruiser promotion.
I received the NYNE Cruiser in the mail without incident and this is what the package looks like.
Here is the box open
The on/off switch and the other ports are on the back of the device.
Mounting the speaker on my bike was easy. If you have ever mounted clamps for lights or bags on your bike the installation was easy and the instructions not needed. But instructions are included and easy to follow.
Once I turned on the speaker and enabled Bluetooth on my phone, Galaxy S5, syncing was easy. Clear music was soon blasting away. Volume controls were easy to use . Working with my son I tested the phone functions. I was able to call out with my phone and hear via the speaker and when I received calls the same, easy to answer and hear the calls. My voice activated functions on my phone worked flawlessly via the NYNE Cruiser.
It was also easy to use with my handle bar bag so the NYNY did not reduce my limited real estate on my handle bars, that is a big plus for me.
My teenage son loves the NYNE Cruiser and so do his friends. So far this summer it has been to 2 beach bonfires, several bike rides, a boy scout outing and endless hours just entertaining my son and his teenage friends.
Battery life is pretty good, over 8 plus hours per charge and charging is quick.
And here is a video with a nice soundtrack =)
