  • With the Marware Bike Mount, a cyclist can strap an MP3 player to his or her handlebars, though Marware notes that the strap is "not suitable for the thicker handlebars of most exercise bikes and gym equipment." But with bikes that move, the device can be used to hold a music player still without scratching the bike, Marware says on its Web site. The mount costs $7.95.
