Nice job. I may take up biking to cash in on your idea.
Is the reception working out for you?

Looks pretty cool. Now if my fat ass would put on a backpack that wasn't filled with Miller Lite I might try that. I just wish these "headphones" antenna worked a bit better. but I like what you got there.

It's funny. On the holster they notch out for the antenna bump as if that thing really does something. I really am just floored at the shady reception of this thing. My car moves quicker and more distances than i do and reception is fantastic. Why can't they get this down? Why?

Default live sat works well biking

I'm an avid biker as well. First let me say. I rely on the direct sat signal since I'm far away from big cities. The internal antenna does not work very well for me. However the headset antenna does work for me. What I do for biking is. I lock the headset antenna on my helmet. So the antenna headset is still on top top of my head. It's great it does not move at all, and very easy to place on/off. Then I have my regular earbuds for listening. The placement of my Stiletto varies depending on what I am wearing, and the weather. I have the arm band, and the seperate belt clip. I have a number of different mounting places. That work very well for me. I can stash the excessive ear plug cords easily as well.

I get fairly decent reception without the headset antenna most of the time. I disconnected the antenna a couple of times on todays ride and there was an immediate volume drop and it definately cuts out more frequently. I am looking forward to some third party antenna configurations.

The arm band is a little floppy on the mountain bike but no problem on the road bike. Long sleeves make it a little difficult to run the cables. My IPOD Shuffle would fit under the sleeves.

I don't have a stiletto, but I'm an avid biker..

Just for a heads up.. It's illegal in some states to ride a bike or car with headphones in/on both ears.. (this includes earbuds).

I think it's stupid, but it might be worth checking with your local law enforcement people just to make sure. (That way you'll know if you whether or not you'll have to to slip the buds out when you're passing a cruiser car

I've used a bike for commuting for about 10 years now in 3 different states (Oregon, Washington and Texas) and have never been hassled for my headphones. I have been pulled over for drunk driving on a bike though.

Default s100 protection

I just got my s100 and the only place I have seen an arm band or case is on speck's website, are there any others I can check out?
