Finally found a good use for Aksium wheels

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

At the science museum in San Diego, this is a display for "making music" with bicycle wheels. Simply put, you spin the wheels so the spokes hit hanging objects and you're supposed to hear "music" through those holes on the table. Ugh.

What's wrong with using the Aksiums for...well...let's just say...bicycle wheels?
