rowbike v. icebike

March 4th, 2006


Around this time of year in New England, a young man’s thoughts naturally turn to suicide. But then we pretty much snap out of it and remember that the season where you can go outside and not immediately be filled with Weltschmerz is coming along soon, very soon.

For my money, the best part of spring in New England is biking on the many excellent rail trails, on which you’ll always see a whole bunch of really cool and weird recumbent bikes and whatnot — like, for example, the “rowbike“. While I think I like my regular bike better, I bet this “rowbike” would help make my rock-hard abs even rock-harder*. Of course, there’s always the “icebike“, but I feel that one of those would only really serve as a really efficient pain delivery mechanism.

    The best part about the icebike site is that it says, “Since 9198” at the bottom.

  2. Joshua says:

    I see “since 9/98”.

    But you know, it also says “Last updated 09/18/99” and, you know, some things have changed about bikes since then.

    So that’s what you can make with the parts left over from building a paddleboat.
