Gas Engine Bicycles - For lazy gasoline lovers?

I am not going to pass judgement and not talk about gasoline bicycles, but I am going to say that many cyclists see gasoline powered bicycles - and sometimes even electric bicycles or e-bikes - as a betrayal of what bicycles are supposed to be: clean and efficient means of transportation.

The video further below is an example of one such gasoline powered bicycle or g-bike.

Whether you like g-bikes, or despise them, the video is an interesting example of one way to tinker with bicycles and try something new with them.

After all, this wouldn't be a bicycle mechanic blog if I didn't showcase examples of people tinkering with their bicycles and trying something different.

Do you own a bike shop and are looking to hire a bicycle mechanic in North America? Just email me with the job posting details and I will post it for you. (Also, please let me know when the job has been filled so I can update the posting.)

SELL YOUR OLD BIKE

If your bicycle is basically junk and you don't know what to do with it then SELL IT TO ME. I will use it for parts. I will give you a fair price ($20 to $30) for your old clunker just so I can rip it apart for parts.

If you need repairs check out my Bicycle Mechanic Services in Leaside Toronto.
