    I guess Android and USB DAC would be the way to go. Unless you mount it somewhere though it's much more awkward to use.

    Or just use your phone.

    I use my iPhone to stream via Airplay to an Airport Express (A1392) which has a combined 3.5mm analogue/digital out. Sound quality is perfectly fine via an Arcam amp and Celestion speakers, and it's easy to use.

    What are you doing? Want to take the odd photo whilst out riding? Then phone in jersey pocket or GoPro on bike. Riding somewhere specifically to take photos? Then whatever you want to carry in a suitable bag.

    A phone is really the perfect tool to take photos whilst out riding, I think you've just been using shit ones.

    @hippy Just take a phone whose photo output you like and/or shoot in RAW. They’re weather sealed, fit in a jersey pocket and you’re taking one anyway.

    If you want to take photo or videos whilst still riding, get a GoPro also. Simples.

    A word of warning for anyone thinking of buying vinyl from International Anthem via Bandcamp.
    They list items shipped within seven days, however my purchases from 4 December still haven't shipped. I emailed them, and they can't tell me when my purchases will be shipped.

    Shame, as I love the label and had hoped to support them and their artists more by buying vinyl from Bandcamp.

    For those of us having a quiet tier 4 christmas we don't want it ruined by the sound of minerals from our tap water.

    Something that I've not found to be an issue so far.

    I don't know about anyone else but I've found this year rather 'difficult' to muster up the energy to get out and take photos.

    Getting out on a bike with a camera after work (wfh) kept me sane all through spring and summer. Struggling a bit with motivation now it's dark when I've finished work, and the light is mostly shit when it's not dark, but then that's the UK winter anyway.

    I love Nikka From The Barrel, however, you sure do feel that extra 11.4% over most other whisky's
