    Looking for a waterproof bluetooth speaker

    I'm planning on commuting to work some of the time and my route is through country lanes. I like listening to music whilst riding, but don't like the idea of using headphones whilst on the road.
    Therefore I was looking to see if I could find a small bluetooth speaker that is waterproof and could be attached to either the handlebar or top post.
    Any suggestions?
    Cheers

    don't know how much it is and doesn't look like it would be to hard to come up with something to hold it

    Many thanks for the link although I had found these already. But was hoping to find something a little smaller...

    Not sure if you looked at the accessories but they also have 2 handle bar mounts and a shoulder strap available Not trying to talk you into it since I have no idea how good it is but it does have those options

    edit: never mind they aren't for that particular one

    I have one of these schosche boom bottles and it's amazing. The funniest thing to me was on my first ride with it on my road bike blasting some tunes the bass shakes the seat tube so you *feel* the bass too, LOL.

    It goes plenty loud, I can easily listen while blasting along at 25mph on my roadbike, I took it mountain biking once but I had **** cell signal so my pandora stream kept dropping out on me, I don't have mp3's stored on my phone.

    The battery lasts for about 20 hours - I use it mainly camping and it can get really loud.

    I have one of these: Amazon.com: Satechi ST-66BTA Audio Cube Portable Bluetooth Speaker System for iPhone/Android Smart Phones/iPad/Tablets/Macbook/Notebooks: MP3 Players & Accessories

    It is neither designed for a bike, nor waterproof, but both are easily fixed. The bottom plate detaches with 4 screws, and I just screwed that onto an old handlebar mount light bracket I had lying around. A sandwich bag + rubber band makes it waterproof when needed and does not affect sound quality or usability.

    I've been using one for well over a year, every single day on my commuter. No issues yet.
