MyCyFi, Inc. has introduced the Cy-fi, a wireless bicycle speaker with iPod compatibility. During normal use, the Cy-fi speaker mounts to the bike frame, while the rider keeps the iPod in a jacket pocket or armband The Cy-fi features wireless audio with Kleer technology, track, volume and playlist controls on the speaker, letting the rider leave the iPod in a pocket, a 30-pin wireless transmitter for iPod, the ability to broadcast music to up to four Cy-fi systems at once, and a speaker weight of under 3 ounces. The Cy-fi will be available in early 2008 and will sell for $150.

They had my interest up to the price.

$150 for a bike speaker? I love my electric bike, but I won’t pay that for something that will most certainly offer low-quality sound and has the potential to be stolen when the bike is chained up outside a store somewhere.

Good concept, bad execution.

$150 for a bulky speaker that probably won’t sound good going downhill at 40 mph? Nope, I’ll stick to my headphones. Now if they had a bar mounted remote for the nano, then we’d have something.
