Musical Bicycle

Tootle As You Pedal
  [vote for,

By modifying the pedal arrangement of a bicycle, air is pumped through the hollow frame, exiting through the end of the handlebars.

Holes are created where the hands are normally placed allowing the cyclist/musician to play tunes as he/she travels (notes created as per a recorder, for example). Whole orchestras could be assembled using modified exercise bikes.

Forget about holes in the handlebars and, indeed, about pumping air through the frame to begin with. A much better solution has once been proposed, but never implemented, by Steve Roberts, him of the BEHEMOTH, and now Microship "fame". [ianf, Mar 09 2001]


       Who'd play the violins?   

       Or are you just talking about the wind section of an orchestra?

       The orchestra is probably a duff (hmmmm.....Duff!) idea - but a variation on a brass band could be created instead.   

       Another thought occurs - marching bands could become cycling bands.

       Is a bicycle a solo and a tandem a duet?

       They could work for Buy-A-Band!
