I want to see this so bad. It’s like the Weiner Mobile of bicycles.

often in the basketball court behind the firestation in east lib… this place is a goldmine for bumper bike sightings.

I dunno, the Weinermobile was a base, profit-oriented scheme.

This? It’s like some holy mission!

That looks like the parking lot of Wendy’s on baum blvd. (I am very observant).

You would be correct, I found the photo on Twitter and the person said it was the Wendy’s parking lot. I saw it earlier in the AM just after the Bloomfield bridge.

This guy bombs down Liberty in rush hour traffic with that bumper. If you re in front of the Crazy Mocha in Bloomfield, you might catch a glimpse.

Haha, I’ve seen that before parked. I always thought it was some type of sculpture piece but not that anyone actually rode it. Awesome!

I met the guy, he calls that his Ferrari, talks about the gull wing doors and etc. He ran up to me when he saw a cargo trike and said he was gonna go to the atm to get one. I want to give him one, I figure he would trick it WAY out.

He had a bike with aluminum foil in the wheels, and a hubcap duct taped to the front, I think I have a pic.

I spotted him on penn ave. (point breeze) about a month ago I think it was the mountain bike.

I really don’t think this is that safe. If a car hits the edge of the bumper I would make him fall but, it is a good make to make sure cars follow the 3′ rule.

Agreed, but I somehow doubt safety was high on the guy’s priority list when putting that beauty together.

Yeah, those bikes are all about style. And he’s got it in 5′ doses. I think I might spend my holiday weekend watching Penn from my balcony just to catch a glimpse of his pimpin’ paneling. :¬]

Makes me kind of want to get neon lights to go around my bike rims…kind of like some cars have under the running boards or just on the undercarriage. Or something….

More than style, he’s making a very adamant *statement* to motorists to give cyclists both room and respect. And he’s doing it in a very ballsy manner.

Two thumbs up!

I saw him riding through the east liberty home depot parking lot at 6am last sunday. I had just woken up so it took me a minute to realize that it was in fact a dude with a bumper attached to the front of his bike.

There should be a tweet of his location. Like the Kogi truck.

How to Avoid the Bumper Life

Someone sent me a pic of him headed down Penn:

Does the bumper help him keep his balance at red lights? Or does it have magical properties?

Not an either/or question, methinks.

I bet it works admirably well at keeping him from hopping on the sidewalk, splitting lanes of traffic, or edging up on the right…heck, it promotes vehicular cycling better than any other bike accessory I’ve ever seen.

salty, that pic is great.

i’m waiting for him to fill that up with a full dashboard

Put this on the uni, now that would be impressive!

This is the original photo erok posted 2 months ago. I figured this is a good place for it.


scott

he has been witnessed riding on sidewalks unfortunately.

We definitely need some bumper bike t-shirts

scott

Just hang out along Penn Ave in East Lib/Garfield and you’ll see him. I’m on my third siting.
