Introduction: Bicycle Starship Enterprise
Starship Enterprise Bicycle stopped traffic in the middle of busy intersections In Davis, CA, USA, people chased after me to stop and take photos, all-in-all a fun Halloween 2010. The warp nacelles are from cardboard tubes, painted white, filled with a strings of LEDs, and mounted on bamboo struts bungeed on the bicycle cargo rack on back. The "saucer section" was a hoop of kid tent poles zip tied onto a cross of bamboo. The "engineering section" was a 5 gallon platic bucket with a "jack-o-latern LED light" inside. In full light the bike looked simple and childish, but in the dark of night, groups of people screamed and cheered, "Beam me up, Scotty!"
