MZ_MAKEcation_Badge2010.gifI found these two bikes in the MAKE Flickr pool:

The top photo shows a folding bike with an “electric push trailer” — a $75 e-bike conversion kit turned into an electrically-powered trailer. Neat idea!

The bottom photo shows a standard mountain bike that some maniac has hacked to run via gas engine.

What have you done to mod your bike this summer? Leave a comment.
