Get fit and make music at the same time with Synth Bike 2.0

You can stick your Cats On Synthesizers In Space, because the only thing that should be on a synth is you… whilst cruising around your neighbourhood, that is.

YouTuber Look Mum No Computer has refined his earlier explorations into mounting a synth to a bike with version 2.0, a 1973 Raleigh chopper with a drum machine, sampler and analogue synth built onto the front panel and top of the frame.

The tempo can be controlled via the onboard clock, or the front wheel, so the faster or slower you go the faster or slower the music goes.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
