Mounted on the back seat of a standard bicycle, this AA- battery-powered propeller would be 3 inches in diameter and provide a good quarter-ounce push.

       Is it baked if there's at least one of these in the world? Baked.

       That product doesn't resemble the idea. The above two bones are some of my most treasured criticisms.

       Also you can do a search for propeller bike on Youtube. Fireball tool made a pedal-powered propeller bike. GCN (Global cycling network) built a jet bike. And someone with a username Rubisguitar built a propellor bike 10 years ago.   

       Maybe it wasn't baked when you thought it up, but it's out in the world now! :D   

       P.S. These are all per my partner, who has an encyclopaedic knowledge of all things weird bike design.

       Ohhhh. Whooops! Well, it was fun watching that kid have fun riding around on something inadvisable anyway.
