Rocket Bike Burning Out His Fuse Up Here Alone


rocket_bikeWhen I was around 11 or so I got an awesome BMX bike for my birthday — only two shopping days left! — and a few days later went to this awesome BMX course nearby in Cape Cod; it was a totally great day.

Now, the BMX bike has been updated in a great way thanks to Rintendo. They are selling a bike called the Fire Trick Bob which seems to be a rocket-powered conveyance.

According to their site (Google translation) the turbine engine spins at a rate of 120,000 RPM and produces the equivalent of 4.4 horsepower. The 1 liter fuel tank is good for about 7 minutes of continual thrust, and you’ll probably want to be careful about where you’re riding this thing since the exhaust can reach about 700 degrees.

This thing will absolutely kill you, but it only costs about 1,oo0,ooo Yen, or roughly $10,000, seems worth it! Think about how easy it would be get around on this thing, presuming you don’t burn your balls off. Of course, it also adds new meaning to saying you’ve got a pocket rocket…
