Video: Stefan Mueller Turns His Bike into a Lawnmower in Self-Isolation

Apr 20, 2020
by James Smurthwaite  

Is this the best #stayathomebikechallenge yet? Stefan Mueller has converted his bike into a lawnmower so he can keep fit, do chores and obey lockdown at the same time.

While we imagine this probably isn't covered under warranty, it's great to see Stefan getting creative while under lockdown and also wearing a helmet to ensure his local health service isn't overwhelmed if he has a crash.

The Austrian rider fired us through a picture of his creation in all its glory:


With lawnmower racing already an established sport in the UK, can we expect the UCI to sanction a new discipline of cycling competition soon? We'll keep you updated when we hear more.

 You know what they say; "If there's grass on the field, mow some lawn. If not, put the knobby's on and play in the mud."

 @jamessmurthwaite: My only concern is that big brand could see it:
- 2 wheels front for better stability
- new wheel size
- new hub "standard"

Burn it before it's too late!

 The seat post angle was almost steep enough to satisfy Mike Levy but the head angle was very old-school. Surprisingly though, hey posted his fastest over-all lap time on this bike.

 Scary on the fast downhills with no front brake, you would have to Mow down some small trees to slow down.

 I did this last year but I took a gas powered push mower and connected it to an old child carrier frame. It was much better to pull it and it mowed SO much better. Two birds; one stone

 Agreed. Handle on my manual mower broke years ago and have been using weedwacker for lawn.

 You might actually have a product you can sell and turn into a business - worth looking into!

 It would actually be even better if you could hook it up to the rear and use the gears to drive the blade even faster than normal while driving the wheels slowly. Having had one of these, I often dreamed of getting it geared up correctly.

 Cross country race on those would be boring but a mass downhill race down a-line would be worth watching.

 With this virus going on it is good to see that hopefully the grass is greener on the other side.

 They should rent these at the local golf course and build a few jump lines in between holes! Win-Win.
