    Hi all, I just recently got an iPod Mini to use when cycling. Problem is the two main ways of secuirng it (armband and belt clip) won't really work while cycling. I tried a belt and the belt clip and its just uncomfortable.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for a waist or lower back strap so that I can secure the Mini to my back while cycling? I don't want to keep it off to the side or front because that's what you land on most often if you fall :p. Searched the forums without much luck.

    If you have a dedicated cycling shirt, you could sew a pocket onto it specifically for your mini.

    ...and don't fall off too much! :)

    Using this is DANGEROUS when cycling and NOT recommended. You need your ears to hear for problems i.e. overtaking traffic. I know people who have had accidents this way! You have been warned mate!

    I would never take this on an open road :). However, I do bike long bike rides (like the charity MS150) which are on closed roads and riding for 6 or 8 hours with just passing terrain on closed roads is a lot easier with music. Also, I do fairly flat hard packed trail riding for just cardio.

    Of course, when I do actual mountain biking or open road cycling, I'd never use a music player.

    Sewing something is a good idea (look like the radio pocket on the back of the TT suits at the Tour de France :), but I doubt I could do it without making it look fully ugly.
