Some of the best everyday stuff sprang from the minds of lazy tinkerers. Kevin Blake built this steel-frame recumbent snowplow bike from old bicycle parts, a riding lawnmower, and a few snow shovels.
Kevin’s brainchild placed runner-up in the “Innovate or Die” contest. He didn’t snag the five-grand top prize, but the neighbors can’t really laugh at him anymore, either. Our only question is about turn radius — in the entire video you never see it go back up the driveway or hang a sharp turn.
Regardless, with Kevin’s design you’re harnessing thigh power instead of straining your back muscles, a good trade.
