You know those rice rockets that terrorize your neighborhood? Well, have you noticed how some of them think that putting a couple of NOS decals on the outside will psychologically provide a speed boost. Well, the same sort of thinking has translated to bicycles, with the Turbospoke – it might just bring back memories of placing a baseball card in the spoke of your bicycle wheel just to make it sound a whole lot cooler than it actually is. Turbospoke will feature a set of strong plastic cards which are positioned between the spokes of your rear tire, where they are connected to a tube that has been shaped to resemble an exhaust pipe. Said faux exhaust pipe functions as an amplifier, creating plenty of sound to turn your bicycle into the coolest on the block. Would you fork out $20 for this?
