The Gear Junkie: Boombot Mini Speaker

Wearing headphones while biking can be a bad idea, especially in urban areas. Your ears are an important part of a safety and awareness system when traveling through intersections and down congested streets.

That’s why Lief Storer, the founder of Boombotix, hand-built a tiny speaker made with toy parts, electronic drivers and a walkie-talkie clip.

Storer’s ad hoc invention, built more than five years ago, has evolved. Today, the San Francisco-based company sells multiple models, including the Boombot MINI, reviewed here.

A trend of wireless, Bluetooth-connected speakers is seen on bike trails around the U.S. People are ditching headphones for audio pumped into the open air.
