How to keep your Boombot secured to your bike handlebars

bike speaker

The concept of using the Boombot speaker on bike handlebars has always been one of the more fun applications of Boombotix speakers.  The speaker faces directly at you.  You enjoy the safety and legality of biking without headphones.   At the same time, we have faced a number of challenges in having a solid bike mount. Some of our riders that use the handlebar mount on bumpier roads found that the speaker vibrated off the bars.  This was especially evident in guys that were using the product for trail riding or just rougher urban streets.

While this isn’t the most elegant of fixes, this simple rubber band solution keeps your speaker securely on the bars and keeps the music blasting right at you.

Installing the bike speaker

Installation is easy.  You need one big rubber band.  For a really secure fit, use one of these silicone wristbands that are frequently offered as swag.  A regular rubber band will work, but these wristband are even tighter.  You will need your Boombot and a bike handlebar mount.

1.  Feed the rubber band through the center of the bike handlebar mount along with the clip.

2.  Wrap one end of the rubber band around the top of the clip.

3. Wrap the other end of the rubber band around the feet of the Boombot and behind the teeth.

If you are completely silly and need to watch a video on how to do this, you can!
