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.

    me and my dear friend olegtron decided to build a three wheeler that contains all sorts of electric equipment for making electronics on- road. It contains a 12V car battery( +solar panels) to run all elelctronics like car stereo, soldering stations, mobile VJing, etc…
    sorry that text is in finnish :) maybe to make it as in english too. On our blog one can find step-by-step instructions on making the three-wheeler and wiring for car battery.. more blog posts coming soon

    A nice easy install, unless you are mechanically retarded like me. Two taco’d tires later and it was good to go! Top out right over 30mph.

  3. This is such an interesting story as it provides in-depth info about biking towards the reader also. Good thing you have this shared. Bike Shop Deerfield Beach
