I saw that today and it gave me quite the chuckle :)
lol want.
Originally mounted on his BMX bike per article.

If you could get one of these mounted on a bike . . . the tear gas function would probably be more useful than forcing the vehicle to a stop.

That looks pretty nifty.

And yeah, the guy looks a lot like Ewan McGregor!
and i'll just post this here instead of starting another forum, but uh... walmart's selling fixed gear bikes now?

a fixed gear- no, a single speed- no, wait, what's the difference- but it's intuitive- and it's got calip..u..r brakes... wait, what? where's the kickstand?
It's not a fixed gear... I think. I'm calling the rep right now. Man I really need to find something to do.

From the article: "But sadly Colin, who built the moped in his spare time in his back garden, will not legally be allowed to use it on the road.

'I've been told that if I fire the flames while riding on the road it's equivalent to using a firearm and I could be in a lot of trouble,' he said.

'Unfortunately I won't be able to ride it into the centre of town but it's a lot of fun and I'll use it off-road.'"


What? You can't use a flame-throwing moped on the road? I guess I'd better cancel my plan to take my napalm-chucking mountain bike with me the next time I go to the UK just to play it safe.

As for using it off-road, have fun in jail after you set the English countryside on fire.

This isn't so much ftw, as it's WTF? As in, What the fuck are you thinking when you build something that can shoot flames at other road users? He might as well just stand at the side of the road with the flamethrower - same jackass idea, much less wasted time in implementing the idea.
I noticed that even Urban Outfitters is selling bikes now too?

That is one of the most ignorant things I have ever seen.

Way to 'share the road.'

If you think this is cool stop for one second and think about how you would feel if somebody built a road weapon aimed at your particular subculture.

This guy is a tool and I rate this more as stupid and sad then I would interesting or humorous.

What sort of asshat builds something that is aggressive and dangerous to others? What sort of asshat thinks that is cool?

If he mounted a rifle on it to shoot the people behind him would you support it or find it funny? If not can you please tell me the difference between the two because both of them look like something stupid and vengeful that is aimed at hurting others and damaging property to me...

And before I am accused of hating fun I think anyone on here who knows me in person can testify that there is no bigger fan of setting things on fire, blowing shit up and smashing stuff; I just know there is a time and a place.
They have been for sometime.

I am not sure why anyone is amazed or surprised by any of this. Something becomes popular as a subculture so it is pretty much a given that it will first be ripped off by a retailer that markets to people who think they are special and eventually ripped off by a retailer who markets to special people.

Sorry, things like that drum up a very primal 'punch it in the face till it's not so stupid' response deep inside of me...

Seriously, how dumb does that guy have to be.
