A letter to Top Gear

The result of an idle thought.

Dear Top Gear,

I’m trying to imagine how a car would handle if mounted on bicycle wheels. I wager that some sturdy mountain bike wheels would take the weight of a light car, and that it could probably be driven forward. I bet the spokes would disintegrate as soon as the driver tried to steer at all.

I’ve looked around on the internet for videos of other crazy people who might have tried this, and I found nothing. It would therefore make my day if someone could persuade James May to get his spanners out and fit some 26″ mountain bike wheels to a Renault Clio.

Best,
Jonathan
