That is an interesting tactic, flagging your own comment!I was also wanting something that would mostly make a "dangerous" instructable inegilible for promotion, or facebook shares from the Instructables facebook page...

Now seeing that this thing only goes 7MPH, The risks are much lower. I usually ride to work everyday at speeds around 20 MPH. I'll usually do a 25MPH sprint once per commute. This is why it's horrifying to me! I have fallen, and learned from those mistakes. Even though I was harsh, the risks I mentionned are still present, and you really should open up those vent holes.
This is a horrible hack. The bike is now twice as wide, half of the drill's ventilation holes are covered, which can very likely burn the motor, you lose the ability to pedal when that NiCd battery quickly runs out of juice, not to mention that relying solely on the front brake in wet, sandy or gravel roads greatly increases the chances of skidding the front tyre, making you lose control and fall. Emergency braking on clean asphalt like this greatly increases the chances of propelling the rider over the handlebars.
You learn by your mistakes though. Then you get smart.
I apologize for being straight out mean, but that's pretty slow. I can do easily twice that speed without breaking a sweat. Triple that and I'm doing a fun workout on my daily commute.Saying that it's "pretty fast" is a bit misleading, and that's why everyone is asking how fast it goes, probably expecting to hear something like 20MPH!
