These bikes are creative, unusual, scary to death, funny, practical or totally useless.

“Gismo” – Rocket Powered Bicycle

It is powered by two 75lb. Thrust Hybrid Rocket Motors. The frame is made of lightweight T6-6061 aircraft aluminum. “Gismo” features a unique front suspension system designed by Ky Michaelson, the “Rocketman”. link

Renovatia

Jens Eichler got himself some sheets of beech plywood, along with a strong glue (phenol-resorcinol) and some power tools. After a few months of playing with the concept, he set to work in August 2006 on what would become a tandem bicycle he calls “Renovatia.” link

Hopworksfiets

Phillip Ross of Metrofiets rolls out the new Hopworks party bike, complete with wood bar, kegs on tap, pizza rack, sound system, and mountains of mojo. link

Cyglo bike with LEDs

Founded by James Tristram, Cyglo Tyre uses tough, durable, bright and long lasting LED bulbs
embedded into the tyre tread or wall to form a ring of high powered light to maximise the visibility
of cyclists to other road users. link

BigDog

A strange bike with four seats and four big wheels.
Read a nice interview with builder Tom Wilson on Make:

ConferenceBike

The ConferenceBike is pedalled by 7 riders sitting in a circle. One person steers while the other 6
pedal (or not) as the bike moves effortlessly along. link

Camper bike

Camper Bike is a functioning sculptural piece, built in April 2008 by Kevin Cyr. link

Fire Bob

A company from Japan sells this crazy bike for one million yens. It has a motor that produces 4.4
horsepower with flames, smoke and scary sounds. link

The Copenhagen wheel

This is a great project from MIT that consists in a special clever wheel. The Copenhagen Wheel
turns the bike you already own, quickly and easily into an electric bike with regeneration and
real-time environmental sensing capabilities. The wheel harvests the energy you input while braking
and cycling and stores it for when you need a bit of a boost. At the same time, sensors in the
wheel are collecting information about air and noise pollution, congestion and road conditions.

Monsterbike

It’s the most brutal bike you’ll ever see…
