    There's a solution to every problem... lol


    I haven't been listening to headphones when riding for the same reason as many. I would prefer to hear my surroundings for whatever reason.
    When jogging though my playlist is mostly old school hard rock like Metallica, Pantera, Megadeth, and Sabbath, with some semi-newer stuff like System of a Down and Drowning Pool. And I have a few select rap songs in as well. Anything with a strong, fast rhythme to keep me pumped.

    If it's a long grueling climbfest, then I listen to the Die Antwoord channel on Pandora:

    None taken. The bone conduction headphones took some getting used to. Seems like the sound/music is coming from your head and yet still hear everything around me. Felt completely wierd. Turn it too loud and the pads start vibrating on your skin - feels irritiating/annoying, and everyone around you can hear the headphones at that point.

    I listen to whatever depending on how I feel - AC/DC, Italian Opera, Led Zep, 5FDP, Vai/Satriani, Floyd, Daft Punk, Deathklok, U2, new stuff, old 70's rock, 80's crap.... blah blah... just to take my mind off how unfit I am and keep myself pedaling. LOL.

    was joking about PPandM (sort of)

    I like tunes when I ride solo, I stay away from rap and rock while riding though, I do listen to hip hop most of the time off the bike.

    On the bike I prefer

    Mofro
    Eric Lindell
    Eric Clapton
    Bob Dylan
    Bob Marley

    and for the DH
    Jazz Mafia
    and PP&M ;

    Interesting...I'd say that's a decent compromise for the people that need music and the people that think like me. Without knowing any more than the webpage that you linked...I'd like to approve (as if my approval means anything more than squat).

    Thanks for the link!

    I get my music and can hear everything around me at the same time. Great when you can also hear traffic while cycling to/from the trail.

    Lately I've been getting into Bob Mould's post Husker Du career, Sugar and solo stuff but some of it isn't that great for riding so I leave it off the playlist.
    Newish rock-
    Dead Weather
    Tame Impala
    Tuneyards (no, I'm not going to use the crazy capitalization)

    Newish rap-
    JJ Doom
    Das Racist- this is probably my favorite riding music right now

    I actually don't like anything too fast for riding, for running it's fine. The stuff that's always good-
    Primal Scream
    Pixies
    The Cult
    Fugazi
    Built to Spill (the more upbeat stuff)
    Beastie Boys of course

    On road rides I really like listening to podcasts, the Slate ones are good and I like a couple of the non-serious NPR one too. One of my favorites is 99% Invisible, it's not about what you think it is, it is generally about design but he covers several topics.

    To those who respond with snide comments about not riding with music, save it. Many of us ride responsibly with music and it's disrespectful to the OP. As others have pointed out, there are many ways to listen to music while riding safely and responsibly. I prefer riding with one earbud, I just bought a Short Bud from Far End Gear and it's awesome.

    Anything metal, heavy, thrash,speed death and what ever else they class as metal. If its fast and pounding great, makes me shred single track, for some reason I corner better with tunes.

    Spotify radio = better that pandora imho

    Had a guy go off on me @ the local trails, it took him a few seconds to get my attention(so he could pass)instead of instantly, yes, because I had headphones on. I told him this is a state park for us all to enjoy, not a race. I have had people take their good ole time to let me pass that didn't have headphones on, so whatever..

    thinking about putting a rearview mirror on my handlebars tho..

    My playlist is mainly electronic in nature. Drum n' Bass is really good for the riding and some dubstep too. I have a few acoustic or rock songs in there too.

    I made the mistake of starting out listening to music while riding so, as crazy and it sounds, it feels weird to not listen while on the bike. That being said though, I'm trying to phase myself off of it for safety's sake by just listening with one ear bud in. On my local trail which is pretty low traffic I listen with both in but my music is quite and the main thing I'm listening for is the stats my phone reads off to me every mile.

    i listen to sort of instrumental electronic music. stuff like gramatik and maybe some chiller dubstep. I throw some reggae on there too.

    I have

    Little people
    Gramatik
    Rusko
    Bonobo
    Ronald Jenkees
    Break Science
    paper diamond

    and thats about it.

    I have a small ihome speaker that looks like an acordion. Earbuds arent too safe, and I hate being unable to hear.

    heres a nice climbing song its fun in races to have music on the speaker for everyone to enjoy.

    I just bought a BoomBotix Boombot 2 to use with my Motoactv and I like it so far. I use it at a very low volume as to not disturb anyone else and also so I can still hear my surroundings. The best of both worlds.

    It has nothing to do with hearing nature, being a spiritual experience (as some feel), or anything of that sort...but it has to do with safety of you and others. Can you hear people that want to pass? Can you hear someone yelling for help if they went off the trail and are hurt? Things of that sort. I have, personally, run into many problems with riders (and runners) with headphones.

    I'm not telling people to not use them...do what you want. I just ask that if you do have headphones on...please don't phase out into your own world. Try to be even more attentive than you usually are.
    It's really not that difficult! O-tus Safe Sounds. You can hear your music and everything around you. I use them and they're great. if I'm riding with friends I leave them at home. However a 2-3 hour solo training rides and riding solo the majority of the time is made much better with music. With these helmet speakers you can hear the music and everything around you. something else that's also key -- I've used them when riding with friends a time or two and my friends have never been able to hear my music--even when listening for it. Neat product (and NO I don't work for them)

    I cant say i enjoy listening to music on single track, i like to ride because its quiet and i can just hear and observe nature (and i like being able to hear the chirp of my breaks the dirt under my wheels). how ever for the 45min to 2 hours to the top of the trail system up the logging roads it helps keep my timing and clears my head. I much rather be Bs'ing with random people that i come across, but when no ones around ninja tunes compilations are great random shuffles with some good beats.

    But i mean honestly the only real answer is skinny puppy, its appropriate for any situation. =p

    soundgarden johnny cash slayer ween and whatever too

    as for music haters on the trail... until you all get bells and ding ding around blind corners
    like I do, pipe down. it is possible to keep the music low enough to hear trail and bike sounds. Seriously though I think every rider needs to use a bell. It helps fellow trail users know you are coming. (unless they have earphones in) ((paradox alert))
    Keep trying to do the awesomest thing you've ever done.

    My bear bell has saved me so many collisions, especial when riding solo. You will always hear a group hooting and yelling as hey ride, but solo riders are like ghosts.

    There are other alternatives to headphones/earbuds if you want to listen to music while riding. I bought a little speaker thingy at walmart for about 7 bucks. I put it in my camelbak and it's quite a bit louder than my iPhone speaker which you can't hear at all, but still not so loud I can't hear other trail users.

    Whether or not I fire up the tunes depends on my mood. But if I do, the Life Cycles soundtrack usually makes for some good riding music. Or heavy music with groove like Bolt Thrower.

    Nice to see a couple people mention Die Antwoord! My personal bike theme for the last few months has been: "Jealousy, makes you nasty...IN YOUR FACE!"

    I love to spin the pedals faster when it gets to the "Fok off! Fok jou!" part.

    i dont do it much anymore. i think i'm getting paranoid about hearing noises around me. i once had earbuds in, and stopped to look around, then turned around and a stranger (another rider) was RIGHT behind me! i screamed at him (surprised). Anyway, i just hit random on my ipod. the great part is, when the RIGHT song comes on when you're flowing on singletrack. Picture music that follows the trail, if that makes sense.

    btw, Queens of the stone age, Rage Against the Machine, Porcupine Tree, Tool, few scattered hip hop songs, but mostly 90's rock/grunge fills the ol' pod.

    As much as I love music, I don't enjoy listening to a speaker while I ride, and I'll never ride with earbuds in. I need to hear what's going on around me. I was involved in an incident with a fellow forum member where had I had ear buds in, that member might not be with us today.

    I'm one of those "the only music you should listen to out riding is the sound of your tyres on the dirt" types.
    From an enjoyment point of view, I ride to get away from everything, that seclusion of bike and bush. From a safety point of view I like to be able to hear my bike and anything else around it, lets me know what's going on.

    When I'm on the trails (AM or DH) or road, I don't listen to music. I like the natural sounds (wind, crackling sounds, animals, my own breathing etc). For safety on DH or on the road, I need to hear riders or traffic approaching.

    When I'm indoors spinning or on a trainer... that's a different story. I love music to break the monotony and spin to different tempos. I have a wide range of music (classic rock, and 80's. 90's alt rock, punk, grunge. ) If its got a good beat or catchy riff I like get into in

    This- i've found the best pair of earbuds with decent bass and inline controls so that u can adjust volume or pause, skip while your listening. I agree with all the mx choices except the country! : )

    Don't ride dirt with music, but on my road/training rides I just download some mixes from the free Podcasts on my Iphone and just put the hammer down. There are some excellent mixes, plus other musical genres out there. Best of all its free!

    I generally only listen to hard rock, alternative, and older rap. I'm 45 so many people think that's odd, but I was sick of the 80's music already during the 80's.

    I generally don't listen to music on marked mountain bike trails, but if I'm out gravel grinding it is on. I do wear earbuds most of the time, but the music is off where appropriate and I leave the earbuds in because too much cold wind gives me ear aches, but I can still hear fine.

    I don't freak when I run upon another bikers with music going, I just pass them when I can or whatever. Generally it scares the heck out of them if I let out a blood curdling scream to get their attention.

    Interesting, pretty much nobody rides with headphones around here. The trails are busy and you really need to be able to hear and be heard by other trail users.

    Some walkers haven't figured this out yet and get really startled even when I ding my bell, slow down and pass giving them a wide berth. There's nothing you can do not to startle them when they can't hear anything and have their back turned. Thankfully most of those people stay off of the single track.

    I am usually training for XC races so I use a lot of high energy stuff. I have a large amount of stuff I rotate in and out too. I just discovered Overwerk and really like it hence the multiple tracks.

    A great song i usually play on the speakers before a race is Neil Diamond - Sweet Caroline....

    Such a fun song to get into peoples heads.

    Great music thread!

    I've been using a Bluetooth headset. It doesn't get real loud and leaves one ear open. I'm also on call a lot for work.

    Been playing Jack White Blunderbuss.

    While I dont ride with music playing, I do drive to the trailhead with music to pump me up. To name a few:

    Sabaton
    Falconer
    Twilightning
    Alestorm
    Dragonforce
    Astral Doors
    WinterSun
    Demons & Wizards
    Requiem(Finland)
    The list could go on for ages. But basically all things powermetal. High pitched vocals, lightning fast guitars, thundering drums, intense keyboarding. Oh yeah. Thats the stuff.
    Slightly faster than a speeding snail.

    It has nothing to do with hearing nature, being a spiritual experience (as some feel), or anything of that sort...but it has to do with safety of you and others. Can you hear people that want to pass? Can you hear someone yelling for help if they went off the trail and are hurt? Things of that sort. I have, personally, run into many problems with riders (and runners) with headphones.

    I'm not telling people to not use them...do what you want. I just ask that if you do have headphones on...please don't phase out into your own world. Try to be even more attentive than you usually are.
    I'm the same way... most of my riding is done in downtown cities, late at night (11pm-5am). No way I'd plug music into my head, not only to hear traffic but anyone running up on me.

    plugged in

    I just don't get headphones while biking thing. I love music, play guitar, blah, blah, but it seems that besides the issue of not be able to hear anyone approaching from behind ... they are disconnected to other trail users and it comes off as being rude.. I'll say "Hey, how ya doing?" and get no response then I realize they are tuned out. Isn't there enough noise in our worlds. I just love following a hiker for ... what seems a great distance going 3mph and scaring the Shiite out of them once they notice I'm wanting to get around them. A biker with helmet, sunglasses and other gear already sets themselves apart from peds and earpods send a message of "I don't need to communicate with fellow trail users.. I'm doing my thing." Headphones are also a bad idea for your ears..... unless very careful... but to each his/her own. I do know we are all trying to decompress from our busy stressful days... so it's good we're all out on the trail... Happy Trails!

    I'm not much for headphones either. That's why I carry one of these:

    It's pretty rad because you can just carry a couple extra tapes and listen all day long!
