I am not a huge fan of people sharing their music with the public and the trend of those who are piloting automobiles blasting their music seems to be spreading to the bicycle community. On my morning commute I have run into one cyclist a few times who has some sort of speaker system set up on his handlebars, and I have not been amused. I also have received numerous emails from companies promoting products meant to amplify music on bicycles. Although I am not a huge fan, some out there might be and reader Henry sent along the following hack.

I attached a speaker to my handlebars and use a portable USB charger zip tied to the frame to power the speaker. A piece of wood or cardboard over the speaker helps with mounting a radio and phone holder to the handle bars as well as a headlight with rear turn signals and a brake light.
