    bada boom bada bing. as far as the tire thing though, wouldnt having alot of weight (relatively speaking) on your back, in a messenger bag or backpack, accomplish a similar thing? i know when i have a lot of crap stuffed in my bag, and then i ride with no weight, i feel like i can go much faster.

    Presumably. But it wouldn't look nearly as crazy.
