For those of us who were children in the late 80s and early 90s, we may have dreamed of one day owning a gigantic tractor trailer that could transform into a colossal fighting robot. Or of simply having a toy that could approximate this change from one form into another. As adults, though, we have come to realize that this is wishful thinking. That is, unless we decide to build this transforming bicycle.

You're thirty years late, you bastards.

    Get an electric one - 400 quid, but they look like fun. They don't ship to AU or USA though. I wonder if it's because of the lithium battery.

    No problem is insoluble, but at Ksp = 2.943×10−25 Mercury Sulphide comes close.
