Flickr Find: iPad powering bike stereo

This is pretty cool — it’s a bike-mounted iPad-controlled stereo spotted at a meetup for a group of BMX riders recently. There’s not a lot of information on how it was all put together (maybe if user Mikey Wally sees this he can tell us more in the comments below), but it looks like the iPad is secured with a handlebars mount, and then plugged into a speaker stuck on the front. Assuming it is secure (and I hope it is, otherwise you’re going to have a very broken iPad), it seems like a pretty wild way to take your music mobile. As we’ve discussed before, having an iPad on a bike can be handy in certain situations.

I think it’d be cool to see another music app running on there, or maybe even hook the iPad’s accelerometer to the bike somehow, and have it display trip information of some kind as you traveled.
