What is this, and what is it used for?
Extra points for manufacturer and model information!
Have at it!

outstanding guess, btw. but wrong.

Is it a screw-part for a drum?

25th Aug 2004, 19:29

you know, i never thought about that. but no.

25th Aug 2004, 20:29

another interesting guess. i could see how that could work, the only problem is that bike seat posts don't have threaded ends, and there's nowhere for a seat to attach to it. good try, but nope.

It's that kid's whistle-thingy for summoning Godzilla. Threaded so it can attach to his dental braces.

Smurf jackhammer.

Uh... Smurf-hammer.

Joe says:

hmmm it almost looks like some kind of dump valve for a turbocharger, but that wouldn't have the spring exposed, I'm guessing some kind of pressure actuated valve?

One of the implants I'm having screwed into the heels of my feet?

It's a Zebedee-Terminator.

Boing! Time for death.

I could turn it into something that you COULD shove up SOMEONE's ass (we know HOW I'm talking about...)

25th Aug 2004, 22:27

such outstanding answers i'm getting! all wrong, none close, but all outstanding! i like slinka's answer, rich's (why i don't know), joe is obviously a man after my own heart (an excellent venture), but wrong. And my dear Melinda. You might just win the best answer contest so far. Highly original. Continue on!

Joe says:

well then, it's quite clearly a thingymebob, designed purely for doing wotsit, to the us out here!??

hanuman says:

It's one of those egg whisk pedals that work with SPuDs.

25th Aug 2004, 23:28

hanuman says:

Made by shimano

25th Aug 2004, 23:28

Joe says:

Special Purple under Pants?

25th Aug 2004, 23:30

hanuman is pretty much there.. wrong manufacturer, close on the name, not sure what SPuDs are, but that's just about it.

25th Aug 2004, 23:46

Damn. I was absolutely sure I could use it to summon Godzilla. Maybe I was wrong about what orifice it could be threaded into....

rednc2 says:

It's not a shimano - I think it's an eggbeater, probably Crank Bros. Might even be the stainless version though I can't tell...they're good kit though I'm used to the more conventional models.

painloathing says:

I believe it's a Sproket, manufactured by Spacely's Sprockets.

26th Aug 2004, 15:39

rednc2 says:

in that case, does it come with a free space-dog?

26th Aug 2004, 15:40

Groovicron says:

A very small lightsaber?

26th Aug 2004, 16:04

rednc2 gets it - Crank Bros. Eggbeater Stainless bicycle pedal. although he ran with hanuman's answer... call it a tie. i liked painloathing's answer, too, but unfortunately, i don't live in a cartoon, and could not give you credit. I think Melinda still gets credit for most creative for "smurf-hammer."

rednc2 says:

ooh, yippee! what do i win?

i did actually know it without help - i bought a pair for a friend recently. and bloody nice they are.

Well ain't that just the smurfiest!

May I just applaud this wonderful thread.

*claps and smiles.

26th Aug 2004, 19:26

Thank you! *bows deeply* I am forever searching for something new that will surpass this one :)

Bugger, I knew that one straight off cos I'd thought about them but the £80 price tag put me off to start with.

Maybe though they'd've stopped me eating tarmac the first time I tried me SPDs... You have to laugh when you're lying with your bike in the middle of the road at a traffic lights for the first time...
