"You're using coconuts! You've got two empty halves of coconut and you're banging' 'em together!"
Well, now a company called Trotify brings us the coolest bike accessory of 932 A.D.
Mount this little tire-driven wooden contraption over your front wheel (it mounts to the front brake bolt) and you too can sound like a trotting horse, or one of King Arthur's knights.
The company's website has a couple of videos of the product in action. Here's one:
|The Trotify gadget comes as shown, with pre-cut wooden pieces that have to be punched out and assembled. Nuts, bolts, and other hardware are included - but from what I understand, one has to provide their own coconut.|
"Where'd you get the coconuts?"
"We found them."
"Found them? In Mercia? The coconut's tropical! This is a temperate zone."
"The swallow may fly south with the sun or the house martin or the plover may seek warmer climes in winter yet these are not strangers to our land."
"Are you suggesting coconuts migrate?"
Even if you're not so intent on sounding like a trotting horse, it looks like a fun little project anyhow. I'm thinking my kids might enjoy one.
Trotify was crowdfunded and the first units distributed to their backers last year, but the makers are now setting up for regular distribution. Anyone interested in the gadget should visit the site to be notified when the next batch is ready for purchase.
