A few weeks ago, Wired magazine ran a story about “hacker bikes” — basically, heavily modified bikes and bike-like objects. Among these was a “rocketbike,” that turned out to be a bit of a hoax — at least in the sense that its propulsion system was roughly the equivalent of two sparklers in your back pocket.

Today, though, I have seen real evidence of the real deal, built by — who else?– an ingenious Swiss man. HELL’S BELLS, it’s a ROCKETBIKE!


You’ll note the speed this gentleman achieves, and compare it with his German snow-biking colleague who now owns the gravity-only land speed record. Boy’s Life classifieds: I’m switching my order. I now longer want a jet pack or a hovercraft.
