1. At least he doesnt have to worry about theft....no one would want that!

2. If you fall off and skin your knee, does that count as workers comp?

3. You won't have to worry about "endo's"!

4. How many gears is the bike to pull a rig that size?

5. Looks like someone got a DUI....

6. Do the bungi cords in the front really stop a mower from shifting in a trailer?

7. To make it a 2 man crew, do you just add peg's?

8. Extra chain? Check. Bike helmet? Check. Bell in working order? Check.

Laugh all you want but we had an old guy in the town I grew up in that never learned how to drive and he pulled his mower all over town behind his bike.

That's a neat idea, but it would clearly make it impossible to grow very big, because it would limit where you could travel. Be ok maybe starting out, but I can see he'll eventually need other means of transportation to service more customers. I prefer a truck and trailer myself to reach more people and get there quicker. LOL. :)

I can't tell the age of the business owner there but if he is a teenager without a license yet, that really shows determination, creativity, and drive!

He is out there creating his brand and making money! Good for him. The lessons he learns through these experiences can be scaled up as his business grows in the future.

If he used a push reel mower, manual hedge clippers and edgers. Then he would be on to something. That whole green thing has a market but to bike a gas mower to the job?

It does, must of lost that beer belly riding that bike.

The guy in the pic looks a bit younger than Weekend Warrior...I know it's all in fun in case the guy still reads here......or not and you think it is him....

But if you google the pic correctly it's an advertisement for a trailer company that makes trailers for bikes.....

If the guy is pricing correctly, knows his costs and does a good job....the guy is no different than any of us, he just has a different mode of transportation.

I'm more south of St Louis, but there are many communities in St Louis where riding a bike would garner him quite a few clients. He could make money, invest and get a truck and trailer and expand.

Even if he would stay with the bike and trailer, he could still make some good money depending on his location.

Do you have any pictures of it? What got you interested in starting that way and how did it help you scale up as you went?

Now that I think of it, I bet I looked this stupid when I first started too. I was pushing a 33" around the neighborhood with a trimmer and broom tied to the handles. :D

This kid at least doesn't have to walk everywhere he goes like I did haha
