One of the things I enjoy the most is finding creative uses for ordinary things. Rather than looking at something and asking “What is this supposed to be used for?”, I’d rather ask “What COULD this be used for?”

About a year ago I got a tandem bicycle. While I certainly enjoyed riding around with my wife or a friend, I also started thinking “How else could I use this?”

Then one day, it hit me. I decided that instead of a bicycle built for two two-legged creatures, I would make a bicycle built for one four-legged creature.

Thus, the centaur bike.

I realize that most people are not going to go out and build one of these, but hopefully this video makes you laugh and gives you a little insight into my process. Who knows? Maybe it’ll even inspire you to find a creative new use for something in your own life!
