A friend's wife let us have some fun w/ his bike (which she calls "his mistress" ;-) for his birthday, which was near April Fool's Day.

In case you miss parts of the picture, the new accessories included:
- colorful streamers in handle plugs
- eyeball bell (instead of a floating compass, there's a bloodshot eyeball that floats around)
- lion head horn (yep..makes a honking sound)
- wicking socks w/ graphic of cow jumping over moon
- toilet paper in water bottle holder (in case he has to take a dump in the middle of nowhere)
- toilet paper in other water bottle (ditto)
- toilet paper in seat bag (yep...in case he has to go again)
- toilet paper in helmet (to absorb sweat)

p.s., note that none of these affected operation of his bike because we don't believe in compromising safety for a good practical joke. He took everything off before riding it again even though his daughter liked the streamers matching her tricycle's. The weird part is he walked in from work, right past the bike and didn't even notice the new accessories. :-)

New clipless pedals.

Falling over once = part of the experience
Falling over twice = learning disablity
Falling over three times = take up running

I don't know if I've ever seen anything as funny as my buddy who was still new to clipless going offroad for the first time. He had the tension cranked down tight for road riding, then tried to ride a trail that was barely fit for hiking, let alone a mountain bike. (He was on one at the time though). I learned a lot about a farm boy's vocabulary that day! I think his best fall was off the side of a steep hill where he tumbled sideways three times and landed upside down in a bush with his still clipped-in bike on top of him! I was laughing so hard I almost peed my pants!
