So I didn't search very long to see if anything like this existed, but I thought if something like a piano roll was inside the body of the bike, pedaling would play the music. You could change the tempo of the music and certainly you would *hear* when you were getting tired.

So maybe this would help me get on my bike if there was some awesome rolls of music!

       [+] Maybe some levers could change depending on uphill vs downhill etc.

       Wonderful idea. Also, on the subject of rotary music, see linky.

       Excellent.   

       The carousel in Balboa park in San Diego has an automatic band that runs off of rolls like the player piano. I see ads for places where you can ride exercise bikes in the semidarkness surrounded by buff sweaty folks - dance club like? I think this piano roll exercise bike concept should be expanded to the carousel but the buff sweaty folks are pedaling various unicorns, giraffes and carousel horses, their efforts slowly turning the lot of them and also powering the oompah music from the 100 year old automatic band.

       Post it, [bungston], and they will bun. I do enjoy that carousel.

       Human powered vehicle (multi-seat) with a fairground organ on the back ? Pedalling provides both propulsion and entertainment.   

       Small version: One-man bicycle band.

       Nice, I would like an add-on cassette to retro fit all those stationary bicycle rollers. Maybe a roller unit between the rollers and bicycle wheel.
