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?
<p>That is exactly the question that sprung to my mind...</p><p>Anyway, hilarious project, made my day</p>
Great idea - but the only drawback I see is having to cock the leg up to shoulder height - before spinning it over the frame while mounting the bike - unless of course, you forget...<br> <br> &quot;Arrrggghhhhh dammit! That is the third blender jug I have broken this week...&quot;<br> <br> Etc.<br> <br> Perhaps a tough plastic bag and a pounding with the fist might make a good blender..<br>
If you could paint as well, you would be able to paint, exercise, and make blended drinks: <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvbL_5rH1QQ" rel="nofollow">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvbL_5rH1QQ</a><br>
