Picture of Bike Blender
Transform an electric blender into a mechanically pedal powered bike blender.

Step 1: Obtain an electric blender working or not

You can use any electric blender really. I will describe the process I used which can be applied to any blender. Preferably not working since if it is not working you are about to give it a second life.

One blender I tried didn't work though because I couldn't remove the top wheel from the shaft. This is the only thing that will prohibit the blender from being used- is if the components won't disassemble after trying EVERYTHING!!

I used a blender that was relatively old. I don't have a picture of it in its original state but the idea is you want a blender who's bottom can be removed and mechanical insides exposed to be modified.

Why are you wearing a helmet in step 3 using tools, but not in step 10 where you are actually riding a bike?

That is exactly the question that sprung to my mind...

Anyway, hilarious project, made my day

If you could paint as well, you would be able to paint, exercise, and make blended drinks: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvbL_5rH1QQ

I'd like to see this turning up on cookery shows;

"Give the ingredients about 3 miles in the blender..."
