Picture - bike pulling freight train
 
I happened to go to fujitsu.com and found this picture of a bicycle pulling a freight train which I just had to share...

See what happens when you get a trailer? You bring too much stuff on tour!

That must be Jack LaLanne! :D

That'll show all those sissies with their triples what a double can do.

I wonder if he has suspension? I'd hate to see how his brakes heat up on a downhill grade.

Jack is holding his own--even at age 90!

It's not even a hardtail, let alone full suspension. I'll bet riding over those ties is rough! :)

I'll bet going over bridges is really hairy.

Haha. I tried doing that once. I'm not the strongest cyclist, but at my highest level of exertion, I was rolling along at about 6mph. That's without towing anything.

Then again I once saw someone riding a http://drake.marin.k12.ca.us/stuwork...ike/RAILB1.JPG, and it seemed to roll quite smoothly. I imagine the surface of a rail is smoother than the road.

What's a railroad track doing hanging in mid-air....?

The funny part is that the train cars are tied to the cyclist's 'nads.

:roflmao: ....See....There's some motion.....Just super-impose it on all the posts in this thread..... :roflmao:

The picture doesn't need more blur, it needs MORE COWBELL!

DONE! I bet myself I couldn't get 7 replies to that picture ... this makes 3x that!

I liked Phantomcow2's motion blur (forwards or backwards) and recursive's "Cycling On Abandoned [aerial] Railroads" was great.

What none of you guessed is that when I pulled that train I was using my fixed-gear!

Great skit.

This isn't a bad effort. Scroll to the bottom of the page there is a trike pulling a boat on a trailer.
