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 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.
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.
