'Turntable Rider' Turns Your Bike Into A Music Mix Pad (Video)


Why just ride your mountain bike when you can use it to make music, too?

After all, nothing rounds out a rollicking quest for a natural high like adding a pulsating dance mix to those placid hills and valleys. (In truth, this YouTube video isn't so much mountain bike as it is trick bike - and this is certainly a new trick that will thrill certain segments of the consumer republic.)

According to Creativity, Cogoo, a Japense bicycle sharing service, launched the system - called "Turntable Rider" - to enable bikers to set off and mix pre-recorded sounds by performing different actions on the bike.
