Insisting that my installs replace the rear wheels means I have all the old 16 gaugers laying around, so I put them on the fence.

Locals know where Rough Edge is, but out of towners can be told "when you see the bike wheels on a fence, you've passed my driveway"...

I had all those reflectors too, I'm trying to get this contraption to spin in the breeze, (a work in progress). In testing at night, I'd wait around till I heard a car in the distance and "give it a whirl". 3 times out of 4 I heard the cars slow down as they approached this Unidentified Spinning Object.

Traveling the country, you see one of a kind advertising, and if I can fill a quarter mile of fence with bike wheels, it should be unique enough.

I can't weld very well, but was thinking you welders could probably take 10 or 20 wheels and somehow create a "sphere" of spokes.

Anybody else got any goofy ways of exhibiting their wares?

btw: our Governor had a "pray for rain" week, only gubbmint program I've seen work, nick of time too- the pasture would have died in another week.

With the quantity of goat manure I had waiting to be drenched, the pastures exploded like the desert a' bloomin'.

Had a few days of showers, too late for the crops, but Rough Edge had ZERO (less than 1/8th of an inch anyway) since February.

We could see rain a mile away, but it never hit us, and as you can tell, when this shower hit I was riding the bike, loving the wet effect.

I like what you are doing with your wheels. I bet the reflected wheel really messes with the passersby. :LOL:
here's a thought....how about a small windmill attached to a belt drive to keep it spinning??

here's an oldie for ya----->

I put it in a "hollow", so cars can slow down and read at eye-level. I saw some brakelights as cars passed by.

yup, the administration (they think they're playing us) is playing right into our dastardly plan...to save the planet! hehe...just kidding, the planet is just fine...our environment, however...

bama...down the road a piece is about 100yards of bicycle art on a fence...i'm waiting for the chance to go by again and get you a pic for this thread.
