It is awesome how many truly unique and amazingly creative things people can come up with. Do-it-yourself is the engine of innovation and it always deserves attention, so let’s have a look at 10 most bizarre and odd DIY bicycles to stir your imagination.
Note: while this post proves you can create a cool bicycle at home, more often than not it is a better idea to turn to a professional in case you need a reliable exercise bike.
1. Wooden Bicycle
16-year-old high school student Marco Facciola instructs how to create a wooden bicycle with fully functional chain and sprockets (gears). We are surely deeply impressed by the awesome work but I doubt the bicycle is reliable enough for daily rides:
2. Shoe Cycle
Shoe cycle (or it may also be called a running bike) is hardly faster or more comfortable than a regular bicycle but it is the perfect way to attract attention. If you enjoy being in the limelight, that could be good idea for you to have such a weird bicycle to go out on the weekends.
3. Office Chair Bike
Like you don’t spend enough time in your office chair! On the other hand, this really looks comfortable. So in case you spend much time on a bike daily, consider this little upgrade: add a 35 pound leather executive office chair.
4. Bicycle Saw
The bicycle saw looks actually scary. Besides, it is a bit unclear how to use it and what happens when you are cycling, but it is still a genius idea!
5. Ice Bike
If winters at your home town are usually long and stormy, it doesn’t mean you have to stop using your bike: enjoy an ice bike instead!
6. Water Bike
The bike with water gallons can float on the water. These water gallons are raised, when the bike is on the road.
7. Rail Bike
Not sure if you ever need one, but this actually looks cool. The rail bike is upgraded with a custom-fabricated bottom bracket, steel cable, angle iron, lawnmower and skateboard wheels and some plumbing parts.
8. Solar-Powered Bike
On sunny days the bike depends on solar panels mounted on top. When it’s idle, the generated energy is used to recharge a battery for days when the sun isn’t shining.
9. Double Bike:
Except for the funky look, there’s no really any new functionality added to double-wheeled bike concept:
10. Bike Cart
And this one really looks comfortable: a good alternative to a car when driving to the mall for glossary shopping:
