Tricking out the Bike 6

Rocket BikeI thought I was a good bike tricker until I came across this guy on Make:Blog. A rocket booster on the tail rack! Why didn't I think of that first? (Click photo for Pop Sci article)

Seeing this set my mind going. How can I trick out my bike to compete with that? It occurred to me that on a day like we're having here, a rocket booster wouldn't do much good anyway.

The Bike Plow (tm) (patent pending)

No, on a day like this, you need a scoop and a bungee cord to make your own bike plow.

(See, Mom, you don't need to worry about me cycling in the winter.)
