    This "bicycle parts" musical rendition comes from the Specialized website. Info is below.

    http://www.specialized.com/bc/microsite/holiday/index.html

    An experimental musician (and cyclist) named Flip Barber is credited with the production, which, according to BikeBiz.com, is "stunning." It's a rendition of Tchaikovsky's "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" from "The Nutcracker Suite." The glockenspiel and clarinet melody is created with spokes. The cello and violin pizzicatos are made by plucking derailleur cables. The tingly triangle is a tap on a disc brake. The percussion is a medley of shifting, coasting, braking, clipping into pedals, back-spinning, and air pssss-ing out of tires.

    That was awesome. Thanks for the link.

    I would love to see a "making of" video to see the process of recording the tracks to make that happen.
