Step 1: You Will Need:

you will need:

1. tape, duck tape works best, but other thick tape will also work.

2. scissors

3. card board pieces, plastic milk jugs, or the big plastic ice cream containers.

4. a bike!

Step 2: Putting the Card Board On

get the tape card board and bike ready.

tape you pieces on any where, near the wheel against the tread is the loudest, also putting it though the spokes works pretty well, but it's not so loud.

Step 3: Almost There!

hop on your bike and ride! move around the things for different sounds. keep your shirts on, the neighbors will be lookin' ! (Sorry for the bad video quality)

    Back in the day, when bicycles had fenders, they just used a clothes pin and playing card.

    I came from more ghetto and less imaginative places, so I always just stuck a pop can on the rear tire.

    Pokemon cards could be put to good use like this! Your younger brother probably has some laying around. I used to have the card hitting the spokes.

    I remember doing this when I was seven, back when dinosaurs roamed the Earth . . . Fun, simple ideas like this don't go away. (I think the video should be put up for an award - Best abstract short film ;¬)
