FRIDAY RANDOMS: Insane Bike Inventions!

So I’ve been thinking… We all love bikes right? Of course we do! Well some people decide to take their passion for bikes to a whole new level by inventing their own two wheeled modes of transport and some of these are completely bonkers! So this week’s FRIDAY RANDOMS is dedicated to some of the crazy inventions we’ve seen over the years, the innovators and the experimentalists. Hopefully these unique chunks of metal will inspire at least one person to go and make something special. Who knows?

Bike Kill 2004.

This was an annual event where the New York-based bike gang have an “annual day of mayhem, stunts and tall bike jousting” – Looks like too much fun! Some of the contraptions in this video are absolutely mental. Lovin’ that steam-roller bike near the start…


Ryan Nyquist – Remote Control Barspin Bike.

Remember the time Ryan Nyquist had a bike rigged up to do automatic barspins? This would be the scariest thing ever, having no control whatsoever as to when the bars are gonna spin. Hats off to Nyquist for pulling this clean!

 Vietnamese Man Plays Music With Bike.

This is just bizarre! A Vietnamese man decided to turn his bike into a musical instrument, couldn’t watch the entire video because I got totally weirded out by the whole thing… Hope you can last until the end!

Top Tube Beer Holder.

SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY! These things would be ideal for a sunny day with the lads, beers kept safe and secure (until you forget about them and decide to do a whip or something…)


The Lawnmower Bike

Immediately I thought to myself, “Why the hell have I never thought of this?” – Imagine rather than pushing your mower about if you could pedal it instead! Great workout, just wouldn’t recommend barspins!

The Bubblewrap Bike

Enjoy popping bubble wrap? Like riding bikes? We have the answer to all of your needs! The Bubblewrap Bike. Getting some speed up on this thing would sound like a million AK-47’s firing at once. So rad!

The Sewing Machine Bike.

Want to take the kids out for a bike ride with the Mrs but she knows fine well those seams aren’t gonna sew themselves… Well the answer to all of your problems is here! Multi-tasking at its finest. The Sewing Machine Bike, possibly one of the most ridiculous and dangerous ideas I’ve seen was actually a thing, needless to say it didn’t really take off but I absolutely love the concept…

Shopping Trolley Bike.

Trips down to your local supermarket will never be boring again with one of these bike/trolley combos. I don’t know why but I REALLY wanna hit a ramp with this thing and see what happens.

BMX Wakeboard.

Ryan Nyquist again? This time it’s a hybrid cross between a BMX & Wakeboard. I can imagine this being bucket loads of fun on the water and I’m sure you’d all love to give this one a shot. Sending a barrel roll would be pretty intense I bet.

No Forks Guy.

Ok, so this one isn’t really an invention as such but more of a demonstration of skill, balance and radness. No Forks Guy quickly became an internet legend after he was spotted pedalling through the streets of Birmingham. It’s his favourite mode of transport and he can even do tricks on the way to work. What a legend!!
