I can never forget the feel of the wind in my hair while racing around the cul-de-sac where I grew up. The thrill of pedaling as fast as you could, turning quickly, jerking up on the side brake and immediately tipping (or tumping if you live in the South) over and skinning the flesh off your arms and face. Such fun! At that time, I had a daschund named Baron Von Maxwell. He used to stand on the seat of the Big Wheel with his paws on the handlebars, while I pedaled, he navigated. It is a memory that has stayed with me…which I guess is why it is actually a memory. I loved that Big Wheel. I’ll never forget growing up and marking the transition by moving the seat back to the next slot of holes. That is a memory I remember, too.
The thing about the Big Wheel now is I see some serious cleaning potential in its design. I have hardwood floors. This involves lots of vacuuming, swiffering and mopping. What if the Big Wheel had all these features? A built in Dyson, side-panel swiffering lever and a pull the break spin mopping system. Think not only of the fun it would bring to everyday floor care, but just imagine the fitness potential of such an apparatus! I’m certain I am on to something big here and it isn’t just a big front wheel. So maybe Einstein and I do share that genius thingy ma bob deal after all. The Big Wheel Wood Floorminator…watch for it. Cher and Joan Rivers, no doubt, will host the infomercial.
