Thought you all might like to see my potential driveway gate. I know it isn't a great photo.

I have also 'heard' about a fence made with bike frames. I like the gates.

A local bike builder was a picnic table made out of bike frames. Pic on www.bgcycles.com then click on the shop tour.

That picnic table is awesome! I love that they decided to put casters on it and throw it into drifts. I need a welder of my own so I can start doing rediculous things like this!

Best use of a bike, EVAR: Man starts mobile pole dancing service with an 8-foot metal pole on a neon-lit platform attached to the back his bike; "It's all legal. The cops can't really stop us - I'm riding my bike and she's exercising.".

That's where those front-loading Worksman trikes would come in handy- he wouldn't get a crick in his neck while riding.
