    Yeah I bet a kitchen rolling pin would work too, my wife's is a ridged massage tool like this one. That says 'foot' but she uses it on calves and quads.

    That's a mad max bike, baby! Mount some guns on the handlebars (and another on the rear rack, with a crazy 8 year-old to shoot it), and you're ready for the global supercollapse!

    The benchmark for a cadence of 90 is the song "Stayin Alive" (this tip from CPR class). Each beat should be one full revolution=left+right pedal stroke, so for instance "Ah Ah Ah Ah Stayin Alive"...
