    "The bike has training wheels with a battery operated cylinder to lift the training wheels off the ground.

    In order to be in the World Record Book the bike has to be ridden without the training wheels for a certain distance."

    Imagining myself rolling to work on that baby with Wagner's Flight of the Valkyries blasting through a loud loudspeaker dressed-up like Snidley Whiplash from the old Rocky and Bullwinkle Show. Thank you, you just gave me something funny to think about on my weekly commute.

    Sure would look good in my yard next to the windmill with some climbing plants growing up it. Or on top of a bike shop.
