Rhythmic biking

featsperminuteFrom radio to 8-tracks, cassettes, CDs and now mp3s, cars have been equipped to play music for many years. Sadly, the bicycle has not seen such a connection with music. Sure riders can enjoy music by carrying cassette, CD or mp3 players, but it has to be an external device. Earlier this year a group of creative and ambitious folks in Amsterdam, explored a way to create a stronger link between music and bikes. The group started a project called Feats Per Minute and found a way to add a vinyl player to the infrastructure of a bike. They created a prototype by placing the player within the wheel and a horn for amplification. While there are still a lot of aspects to work out and this might not be the best way to keep vinyl in good condition, the idea is pretty cool.
