If you can bend an element while cycling, what would it be? firebending?airbending?

being firebending master would be nice, you never get cold during winter, can charge your own gadget if you need too.

or you choose to bend earth while going downhill, you can always go down if you want

or you prefer to become an airbender? you can add some air time while doing tailwhip , or 360 or 720?

or become waterbender and stay healthyand fresh while cruising along the beach?


I would prefer being an earthbender, because I want to bend my steel frame bike to somewhere between comfort geometry to racing geometry on the go, while commuting.

Airbender, obviously. No headwind + constant 50mph tailwind, I'm going +30mph everywhere. Sorta like this:

Elementaling. Periodicity.

The downside...not a lot of elements to directly bend, most are compounds/alloys/etc.
