Sure, Why Not?: A Bicycle That Rides On Car Tires

January 3, 2017


This is an Instructable created by user Mr-Mash detailing how to build a bicycle that rides on car tires. You know, in case that was something you were considering building but weren't sure where to begin. Apparently he started with an old BMX frame, which was heavily modified and widened. Personally, I would have just started from scratch, but that's just me and I have has absolutely zero luck building anything that doesn't fall apart or explode in my face. My parents actually moved so we'd be closer to the hospital.

Keep going for a couple more pics and a video of the bike's first test ride.









Thanks to JTS, who wants a bike that rides on monster truck tires that you can use to drive over traffic at red lights. Now you're talking my language! And that language is gibberish that will never work.

    I didn't know people rode bicycles with right-front left-rear brakes until now...

  • Titty McNipplefondler

    I would ride this to the gym on leg day.

    Your legs would get an amazing work out. However, the sub-optimal seating and body positioning would have you injured in as little as your first time out.

  • Michael Peart

    You kinda missing the point. This bike in a different category.

  • TheQiwiMan

    Seems like that would be pretty hard to ride/stop.

  • GeneralDisorder

    As much as I want to ride it, it would be a lot of god damn work.

    Nothing a large electric motor couldn't fix. But you'd also need a motorcycle brake.

    If you want a bike for riding everyday this not your bike. This bike was made to start a conversation.
