Riding your bike down the street is pretty much standard fare and unless you’re racing or performing some stunts, it’s a relatively mundane task but if you’re looking to make things a little interesting, this accessory dubbed the Trotify might be of interest to you. It seems to be some sort of reference to Monty Python and basically what it does is that it adds this device to the front of your bicycle’s wheel where as you ride, it will create galloping sounds which we assume is to simulate the sound of horse hooves. This is thanks to the two halves of a coconut that continuously hit each other as you pedal. It’s a bit of a novelty and we can only imagine that over time it will wear off and could potentially get rather annoying, but for $32 it’s not that much to spend for a couple of laughs, even more justifiable if you’re a Monty Python fan. The folks who created it are aiming for 1,000 pre-orders before the Trotify hits production, so if you’d like to lend a helping hand, head on over to its website for the details or check out the video above to see it in action.
