The Choprical Fish human-powered party bike

90961-1.jpg

Sound familiar? A well-cultivated hipster takes his reggae-blaring party bicycle to the streets, to be surrounded at every street corner by the common man of the streets… all of whom drop their 40s in ecological outrage when they discover the music isn’t actually human powered. And then it gets ugly. A perfectly greased coiffureage is mussed. A meticulously cultivated sideburn is knocked akimbo. A designer leather jacket is torn around the cuff. And so on.

An ugly, desperate scene. It’s a common danger facing the humanitarian hipster trying to bring music to the people. The Choprical Fish, designed by well-known humanitarian Paul “Fossil Fool” Freedman, is a nice attempt to eliminate the problem by adding a battery-powered iPod to the roving party bike. Look at how delighted the plebiscite are in their totally spontaneous outpourings of rhythmic enthusiasm!

    The frame design is beautiful, as is the rest of it.
    I love the control panel.
    It reminds me of a Lectroid Thermal Pod, although I doubt it flies like a truck.

    If I saw him on the street I’d at least offer him an icy beverage for his efforts.

    Really very cool!

    How is this a party bike? it only fits one, and last time I checked, a party constitutes of more than one person.

    This, OTOH, is a party bike.
    Check out this pub-on-wheels which frequents the vondelpark in Amsterdam (and also the rest of country, apparently)
