Do you want to show the neighborhood kids who is really boss?  Are you ready to wow all other cyclists at your next midnight ride?  If so read on and I will share the my secret bicycle spark shooting technique with you.

Step 1: Step 1. Get a spark plate

This instructable works on the principle that when flint is dragged on the pavement it will leave behind a shower of sparks.  So where can we find a flint-like material up for the job?  Your local big-box retailer!  I picked up some Razor X spark cartridges for this project.  They are meant to be mounted on the back of a Spark SK8 board.  As I don't ride skateboards, I needed to figure out a way to attach this to my bicycle.
I'm mounting it on my rip stick<br>
<p>...classic, next midnight ride for sure.</p>
<p>cant find this any where lol. </p>
<p>What happens if you fall over and cut your head off in the spokes and then have to ride home without any shoes on?</p>
<p>These are being sold as Tail Devils these days - my son has one on his skateboard!</p>
Could you attach that or a similar apparatus to your kickstand so as not to sacrifice functionality of your shoes?
Neato!!! <br>The same can be accomplished with the flints for/from lighters.
Because everything is better with sparks! I like it!
