The Cyclospinnerator

So, it was time to hack together something fun a few weeks back. We wanted to build something for kids, something we could take around to events that would engage the little people.

We got an old broken stationary bike off of freecycle, took it to bits, removed all that was unnecessary, moved the gears to the front, made a new plywood wheel, an 8 foot rope loop and another wheel on a lazy susan bearing attached to a round table top, and lo-and-behold, we had created our cyclospinnerator. Check out the video to see it in action.
