Bicycles that carry powerful beats

Great NY Times article about bike stereos, photo Tyler Hicks/The New York Times –

A new biker gang is roaming the streets of Richmond Hill, Queens. This crew of mostly teenagers can be seen riding along 103rd Avenue just west of the Van Wyck Expressway. The bikes roar, but the booming sound has nothing to do with engines — because there are no engines. They are ordinary bicycles, not motorcycles, although these contraptions look and sound more like rolling D.J. booths. They are outfitted with elaborate stereo systems installed by the youths.

    Wow! Those guys really put a lot of effort (and cash) into those bikes! Reminds me of the old jamaican (and new yorkian) yard party/block party rigs where they’d just connect up as many (matching or not) speakers as they could to put out as many dB’s as possible.

    I wonder how long a couple car batteries last running 4kW systems?
