If the Backbrat doesn't get U.S. youth to embrace cycling, then nothing will. Swiss designer Mathias Hintermann actually designed this bicycle-mounted barbecue for use in Germany. Germans love their bicycles and their bratwursts, but dragging around a grill during a ride to the park isn't the easiest thing in the world.

The Backbrat is designed to mount onto the rear wheel of a bicycle. The design is self-contained, meaning you won't have to bring an extra bag to hold anything. When you reach the park, you can whip out your charcoal and brats and begin grilling. While Hintermann designed the Backbrat for Germany, the design might also be well-received by Americans. Americans love to grill and are looking for reasons to cycle, especially those who live in urban areas.
