Model Of The Month / Re: May Model of the Month (Push Bike)

Tie the wheel/tyre together and cut off the excess balloon.

Inflate the next 160, leaving approx 6 fingers un-inflated.
Make a 2 finger bubble followed by a 1 finger pinch twist.

Then a 2.5/3 finger bubble and twist this into the top three pinch twists.
I find three pinch twists help the handlebars sit and look better on the design.

Push the balloon up through the two 4 finger double sections.

The Bike wheel looks rounder with the joint at the top section under where the seat will be attached later.

Make another 12 finger bubble for the front wheel/tyre.

Attach the peddles to the bike through the corner of the triangle.
These are not detailed but give the impression of the peddles.

I use one 160 balloon to make both wheels/tyres, inflate the 160 to make a 12 finger bubble.

Now make another 4 finger bubble and twist into the other low section of the triangle, the peddles will sit here later.

You then need a 5 finger bubble connected to the lower three pinch twists at the cross bar.

Discard the rest of the grey balloon but use it for the peddles.
You will need a 2 finger bubble, two 1 finger pinch twists and then another 2 finger bubble.

You then need two 4 finger bubbles and twist these back to the two pinch twists.
Discard the rest of this 160 balloon.

Inflate the next Grey 160 leaving 6 fingers un-inflated again and attach to the two pinch twists.

Then make two 4 finger bubbles and the second twist goes thru the previous two 4 finger bubbles that came
down from the two pinch twists. This forms a triangle section where the wheel is going to go between and sit.

Then add the third 1 finger pinch twist.

The front forks I have done two 4.5 finger bubbles and twisted back into the three pinch twists.

Make a 5 finger bubble for the cross bar section of the Bike and then two 1 finger pinch twists.

Here we go then with the tutorial for the Push Bike, I'm still undecided on what mud guard
design we will add but for the moment this is the basic Bike and frame.

Inflate the Grey 160 leaving 6 fingers un-inflated.

Make two 1 finger pinch twists followed by another single 1 finger pinch twists.
You then need a 2 finger bubble and two more 1 finger pinch twists.

This is the colour combination of balloons going out in the model of the month for April.
Its Chocolate Brown for the wheels/tyres as at the moment its hard to get Black 160's.

I tried a different style of mudguard with 2 and 3 pinch twists at the front.
The mudguard sat better with just 2 pinch twists.

These are the colours we are sending out for the Push Bike in the complimentary packs of balloons.
The wheels are Chocolate Brown as at the moment its difficult to get hold of 160 Black.

And the mudguards are slightly different again, I wonder which style I will explain, still pondering, he he.

I nearly had the Bike as model of the month for last month but went with the Snake as I was un decided.
Now for this month I was undecided again on having it as model of the month as well but sent it to a
couple of people and they both really liked it so here it is as model of the month.

The Bike is going to be the model of the month for May,
I have just taken all the pictures and tried three variations on the seat design.
