WELL...

Get them a can of cola / lemonade on the cheap, shove it in their back or front wheel (don't do both or you'll cause an earthquake) and they'll have fun for hours! (We did)

[Please note other brands are available, prices are subject to inflation, once stock is gone that's it & T&C may apply - Note we cannot be held responsible for any damage caused by your children having fun]

If you really want to save money, use one from the recyclable bin that the council will refuse to take anyway because it's the wrong type of plastic or metal.....

PS You can also use plastic bottles but a slightly different sound..

Remember the free things you'd get with Kellogg's cereals to put on your spokes?
Reflectors shaped like a cockerel and the little coloured balls that moved up and down the spokes as you rode making clacking noises, great memories! :D

I also remember we would stand on a can so it gripped on to our shoe and then walk around making cracking noises! Hahaha I was SOOO cool! Lol

And from a time before aluminium cans and plastic bottles, cardboard through the spokes. Pretty safe, and cleaned the spokes at the same time.

Went great with these bad boys


Only issue with them is you would get your hand covered in conflake/rice crispy dust trying to get it out the middle of the packet.

Used to do this when I was younger, but with a plastic carton drink or bottle of water.

I don't think id take the risk with a can to be fair, would end up shredding the tyre oO

Fully agree.
I would say this is potentially dangerous too.

Does this only work for a child's bike? or will it work on mine too?

We used playing cards and a clothes peg on the back frame from the pedals to rear spindle, we didn't realise the issue that caused when you try to play Canasta!

Calypso cartons sounded the best. They're about a quid for 12 too, so, fun for the whole street.

Though I like the idea, surely if that can jams it's going to send your child straight over the handlebars? - looking at the photo I'd say there's quite a good chance of that happening.

You need to use a beer/lager can on an adult's bike.

There is a safer alternative, back in the day we would use disposable plastic cups. Worst case scenario is that the cup would disintegrate without causing any real damage or wear to the tyre.

You're right, best wrap the little darling in bubble wrap before doing this, on second thoughts maybe don't give them a bike at all it might be dangerous, actually might be best if they don't go outside at all. God forbid they might get an ouchy.
