It invaded your bedroom with iH5, went under your counters with iH36, and snuck into your shower with iH20 Hidro-Fi. Now iHome's iHome2Go Cycler, also known as iH85, is ready to add iPod music to your bike. Unlike the company's earlier "strap it all on the handlebars" iH19, Cycler fits into an included thermos holder-style pressure-locked bike sheathe, packs only one large speaker driver, and is controlled via a separate wireless remote that is smaller and easier to access by hand while you're riding. An included carrying case lets you use the water-resistant Cycler off-bike while you're walking or at the beach; in either case you'll need to supply AA batteries. A power adapter is in the box for listening indoors, and mounting hardware is included for easy attachment to your bike.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
