Tricking your bike ride out!

Going green isn't always about the stats, or the moral gratifications.  Going green is about having fun as many people have already discovered.  I am sure some of us have heard of Pimp-my-Ride, or know friends that talk about tricking out their ride.  People get excited about their cars, and they try to show them off to the world.

New mufflers will be added to make them louder, lights installed inside and underneath to obtain that cool look, body kits, spoilers and rims will be installed.  Cars are polished to shine in million different colors.

The same principal can be applied to tricking out your bicycle, and I don't understand why more people don't.  A bike can run as low as $100 up to a grand.  A bike is physically smaller too, a car has 12 square meters of surface area to dress up, whereas a bike has one.  You can spend more time making your bike as awesome as you can.  You only have so much space for your canvas and thus you have more time to devote creating a better a product.  Its time you got excited about a bicycle, which celebrates a healthy life.

Like cars, bicycles also come in many shapes and forms.  You are not just limited to a utilitarian mountain bike, you can make your bike fit your personality and flaunt it.  You can even spruce a mountain bike up as well.
