B.O.N.D. Bike: The flame-throwing urban assault bicycle you've been waiting for

If you've been dodging Denver construction zones, battling Humvee drivers on cell phones or fixing for a showdown with the local fixies -- or if you merely prefer your martinis shaken, not stirred -- then here's the bike for you:

The B.O.N.D. Bike (Built of Notorious Deterrents) looks like something our own Kenny Be would have dreamed up, but, in fact, it's an actual prototype built by the United Kingdom's Environmental Transport Association (ETA) to promote its cycle insurance program. The B.O.N.D. Bike will be unveiled next week at Cycle Show in London (October 7-10). Did we mention it has a flamethrower on it?

Via ETA.co.uk:

"Cycle insurer ilovemybike.co.uk was inspired to build the bicycle after asking 800 cyclists to name their least favourite aspect of life on two wheels.

The B.O.N.D Bike bristles with special features designed to address the most common of these gripes."
