Am I the only person around that would love a Trotify for one of my bikes? Is anyone interested in trying to make me one?

that one looks like *could be* cut with a laser cutter from thin plywood (plus a coconut) so probably even cheaper than a 3D print job would run.
You'd need the digital files for either process but the cutter plans would be easier & quicker to draw, at least for me.
in theory.

I can think of so many good uses for this, if only I could attach it to my Enve fork.

One year I told my daughter I got a pony for her birthday, and gave her some empty coconut shells. She has never forgiven me. But it was worth it.

Thursday night I decided it was time to share The Holy Grail with my 13-year-old daughter. She thought the coconuts bit was hysterical.

Words fail to convey how funny she thought this was. Thanks to the OP for this - making your 13-year-old daughter laugh uproariously can be challenging sometimes but this helps.

This reminds me of when I was a kid, I'd tape on leftover balloons from or children's parties to my bike's fender stay.
The booming sounds the balloon made as the spokes bumped against it made my bike sound like a Harley.
It didn't last that long though as it eventually popped if I go too fast. but it sure sounded great while cruising around slowly in my neighborhood. The other kids playing on our street noticed in awe as I slowly rode by them with my bike rumbling under me.
Those were the good ole boomer kid's days when the simplest things made us so happy!

What about tire wear...that has to be a concern.

..probably a bit more aerodynamic as the coconuts go bald.

Id like to see a performance version...

In the late '60s, we just used baseball cards. Just make sure it's a "common" card, that you have 5 or 6 of anyways, not something rare & possibly valuable. 😲😁

I couldn't think of a Monty Python tie-in, but do you folks remember the guy in a yellow raincoat & hat, riding a tricycle, on Laugh-In? 😁

You could just buy one; it has to be cheaper than hiring a page to follow you around.

I like the idea of a minion of my own. I dont think the company ever got off the ground, hence the reason someone made the 3D printer program

I watched this with my older daughter when she was a teenager. She laughed all the way through until the end, but I can't even tell you how annoyed she was by the ending. (She's a writer ) Since then she won't have anything to do with Monty Python.

I am still incurring the wrath of my wife for letting my, probably 10 year old daughter watch Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Of course, for those of us not so well versed in the high tech you could use a coping saw. Or even a foot powered version.


How about a minstrel to follow you around like Brave Sir Robin.

I ride on a path that is used as a bridal path (for horses). People also walk, jog and run on it. I have a ding bell and when I use it, it seem that I startle people. This Trotify might be just the thing. Perhaps the occasional horse might be ok with me riding my bike too.
