I have the reel mower (no bicycle attached), and while my neighbors do laugh at me (and people pull over and actually WATCH me mow), it is an effective little tool. No annoying fumes, no mind-numbing noise, and great exercise! :)

If you have a perfectly flat lawn (and if you do, then why not put in a garden and then not have to mow?) then that would work. Otherwise, not so much. (I have seen one in action.)

Haters gonna hate.... I am in love even with the idea of it. It's just silly clever.

@rabbit--I hope your comment wasn't towards me? I think it's absolutely cool. But not all that practical for things like hills.

Love this idea! Want a reel mower for our little piece of land, but I think our grass might be a bit too 'pot holey' for it to work... we're still going to try though!

Heck ya it is! Does it really work?

We had a reel mower, but it just couldn't deal with our bumpy (dog-friendly, if you catch my drift) lawn and hilly property. With great sadness, we donated to a neighbor with a more "civilized" lawn. I can still dream, though!!

I'm with Jennifer on this one. It seems like a good idea at first glance, but only if you have a big, really flat lawn, the grass is short and the mower is really sharp. Also, the bike won't go backwards. I've used a push mower, and I think I'd rather just push it with my feet on the ground:).

Nice! I sent this to the fellah, my expert in all things pedal-powered (though we don't have any lawn to speak of, and our reel mower is in dire need of a sharpening... the chickens make short work of anything that tries to overgrow our postage stamp outside the fenced gardens, thankfully). "I think for that to actually work it would need more of a rake on the fork and a fatter rear tire (like surly pugsly fat or bigger)." So, if anyone's gonna build one, keep that in mind? :-)

I love the idea, and since we live in a rental currently, with a fairly flat yard...I think I'm gonna try it. Reckon some sort of a spring mechanism would help it navigate bumps while still mowing?
