Spencer, I just downloaded your mix. If I don't have a live performer I'll play it. We can try and sync up at ride start although digital music players vary in playback speed. Thus they can drift a good fraction of a second every few minutes.

I have a Sansa Clip 8GB. So if anyone is interested in using Side A & B on the ride they can download it at .

I listened to the first 20-30 minutes the other day-- starts great, then a little too jumpy/frenetic for my taste- I'm sure it will work great on the ride though. Spencer, what do you use for a source-- an iPod? We should try syncing . . .

Just getting into it...but good stuff, Spencer. I had been lax at looking into the Halloween mixes/mashups this week, so this will also jumpstart me.

Hey sound bikers,
I finished my Halloween Mixtape last night. If played together side A and B equal 3:33 worth of Halloween madness. The beginning and ending are made to seamlessly connect to the other so that the Mixtape could play twice to time 6:66. I'll be playing this at the Halloween mass and any other sound biker is more than welcome to use it as well. If you are a sound biker and want something included or changed give me an email,, or comment on Soundcloud and we'll work something out. |

Also, I came across these guys at work. They're probably pretty pricey (haven't checked yet), but it looks like they could possibly be handy for prototyping or difficult fitting. I'm looking into them to build an easily removable & adjustable system that'll just slap over any bike rack.

Dunno if everyone is still using SLA for power, but I saw this review of this intelligent consumer battery charger on KK's Cool Tools.

I picked one up, and I can say I'm pretty happy with it. I use NiMH AA's for my setup, and it's great for giving me more info (as well as doing a cycle charge to power them back up).
