Using giant tires from an industrial fertilizer spreader and scrap steel, a German man has built a bicycle weighing 940 kilograms (2,072 pounds) that he plans to pedal into the record books as the world’s heaviest rideable bike. Frank Dose’s bike already outweighs the current Guinness World Record holder’s 860-kilogram (1,900-pound) contraption.
