Why Ride a Bike When You Can Ride a Horse Bike

The winner of the Seoul Cycle Design Competition 2010, "Horsey,"

The designer, Eungi Kim, explains:

horsey' is an attachable bicycle ornament/accessory which makes one's bicycle look horsey! the 'horsey' package includes wooden ornaments (horsey shape body), metal parts, and screws. the manual is very simple so that anyone can easily arrange it according to one's needs. through this 'horsey' project. I wanted to give a special look to bicycles so that people would care about cycling not only as transportation but also as a lovely pet.

Lovely indeed!

Notes on Wheels - Weaving

Weaving Wheels is lots of fun!You can do very simple and quick things aswell as spend a lot of time, being patient and wrapping a wheel very intricately and elaborate.

You can use the spokes to weave in, to stick stuff on them or to wedge things inbetween.
