    I have my iPod set on shuffle. One minute I'm chilling out to Jack Johnson, at one with nature, taking in the scenery, serene and at peace with the world. Next thing you know I'm listening to Rage Against the Machine!!! Angry at the world, grinding up climbs, shredding downhills, powering through the turns! LOL

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

    Which shoulder do you mount it on? I hold mine with my right arm mounted on my right shoulder. It can get a little tricky steering with just one arm on the handlebar when the terrain gets a little more technical but worth it for the awesome sounds and associated street/trail cred!

    I change songs too much to listen. If i am at the base of a long hill and i get a song i don't want to listen to it breaks my concentration...so i don't bother.

    Black Keys
    Dave Matthews Band
    Incubus
    Red Hot Chili Peppers
    Some Linkin Park, some Blink 182 (depending on the mood)

    Typically stay in the rock genre. Rap doesnt do it for me on the trail.

    Kiwi.. I assume you the reason you use your right is because you're on the other side of the world. Up here it's on the left... otherwise breaking is pretty tricky.,

    I think all the chicks dig it too because they're always staring at me.

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.
    I'm the same way NicoleB; check these out, as they're perfect for bike-riding:

    If I want some serious motivation I listen to Two Steps From Hell. No contest for epicness.



    Otherwise I'll usually just listen to some type of electronica, usually trance, dubstep, prog house, or drum n bass.



    Pink Floyd and other relaxing stuff can be amazing for slower rides.

    Oh yeah the chicks love it. Every ride I get handed phone numbers by hot chicks on the trail. Being a married man of course I just discard the numbers at the end of my ride. The worst was when a bevy of babes began snatching and clutching at my baggies in a frenzied attack. It was all a bit unseemly but luckily being on a 29er I was able to accelerate away and leave them in my wake. Ok I lost one of my spare cassettes from my baggies pocket but other than that I emerged unscathed, beatbox still blaring.

    I realized very quickly when I started riding that headphones were really unsafe, especially in my area that has a very prominent cycling culture. I pretty much accepted that I would not be listening to music when I ride when I stumbled upon this thread and found these OneGood™ Earphones - Far End Gear™ Products for outdoor enthusiasts - earbuds, earphones, and earbud tips. linked on the first page. I got two different models and they really great thus far. Obviously only listening in one ear the music wont engulf you as much, but the sound quality is good considering and I'm still able to hear everything around me. They make for a pretty good compromise for MTBing and headphones IMO.

    For some sustained climbing I like to listen to some Citizen Cope, otherwise, I love the sound of my tires on the trail!

    I don't normally listen to music while I ride. I normally listen to audiobooks. Right now, I'm listening to "the Sea Wolf" by Jack London. I just finished "Dracula". Don't knock it before you try it!!!

    Generally don't listen to music while riding, but when riding @ night I have a thing about listening to Portishead while meandering the black morass

    I use Pandora when I ride....I have been on a kick of listening to "Cypress Hill Radio". I really don't care much for rap, at least today's new stuff, but Cypress Hill Radio plays some of the best rap ever made and that stuff has a great beat for some nice flowwwwy single track sessions!!

    Re: music while out on a solo ride

    Google music just announced their pandora-like spotify-like radio option so now in addition to music I own, can stream and find new artists as well as I did with Pandora (never used spotify much).

    More options are great.

    No, YOU don't understand. You're making an ass of yourself for all of eternity.
