"The engine is roughly based off the Gluhareff 5 lb thrust pressure jet model. It is made from 20 gauge stainless steel and weighs about 3 lbs and is heavy duty enough for static test runs"

Doesn't "static" mean stationary?

You can't mount this to a bicycle, it will melt your shoes and start your pants on fire. Plus, you'd have to have a pretty large pressurized tank of propane mounted to you or the bike.

I dunno about you, but I don't want a huge tank of explosive gas on me with a piece of metal under me that's hot enough to cause the air AROUND it to combust...

John, why the hell do you have to give Jonvon some logic. Just let him be man. He will find out through trial and error.

:lol:A small pulse jet is about as practical as a pair of Zircon encrusted snowshoe's, but even Robert H. Goddard had to start somewhere, at the very least, this should make one entertaining video, Johnvon, I have a mountain bike sitting in my backyard that was ridden about five times , if you'll use it for this project, you can have it!
