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.
