Everyone knows BMXers love rock music, energy drinks, heights, extreme trickage, and….trampolines?
Well, you can be forgiven for not knowing the last one because you probably haven’t heard of the Tramp Bike. Who knew this guilty pleasure was a thing? The Tramp Bike is essentially a BMX bike with no attached wheels. Apparently, the burning desire to jump up and down on a trampoline was so strong that someone actually developed a wheel-less BMX bike in order to satiate that want. Appropriately, the bike is advertised as a “bike for Trampolines.”
On the hand, this product is extremely gimmicky given that pretty much anyone can take the wheels off of their current BMX bike and strap some pillows on in their place. On the other hand, the Tram Bike can arguably provide hours of valuable practice time for tricksters looking to perfect that last rotation on their tail whip.
All things considered, it still seems like a better bet for BMXers to get onto the track themselves as it’s doubtful that a trampoline will help their riding game. In any case, a single Tramp Bike goes for $250. It’s scheduled to ship in January 2016 provided its $10,000 goal is met.
