Sperm bikes – yes, really

Danish BULLITT sperm bike

OK, I’ll admit I couldn’t help posting this.

I’m trying desperately to avoid the sniggers but it seems that some fertility clinics – of which the Seattle Sperm Bank is just the latest of, er, several – are now delivery sperm using specially adapted cargo bikes which carry their precious cargo at temperatures as low as -150°C in special nitrogen cooled tanks.

Ironically, the cargo bike’s name is BULLITT (built by a Danish manufacturer – Larry vs. Harry) which gives a whole new meaning to the notion of firing blanks!

Read more on Bikemagic where I shamelessly nicked this pic from!

About the author

Matt is one of the founding Molefathers of the Muddymoles, and is the designer and main administrator of the website.

Having ridden a 2007 Orange Five for many years he's now running a YT Industries Jeffsy 29er and a Bird Zero AM Boost.

An early On-One Inbred still lurks in the back of the stable as a reminder of how things have moved on. You can even find him on road bikes - currently a 2019 Cannondale Topstone 105 SE, a much-used 2011 Specialized Secteur and very niche belt drive Trek District 1.

If you've ever wondered how we got into mountain biking and how the MuddyMoles started, well wonder no more.

    I’m trying to think of something witty to say but I stumped by decency….

    Disconcertingly, I think we’ve found Dave’s next niche bike while at the same time discovering what he gets up to in his garage!!

    Disconcertingly, going to IVF conferences alot, this is very tasteful. The Calfornia Cryobank thick yoghurt drink in a small sperm shaped container was a “taste” low point. I didn’t see many guys drinking them at conferences.

    lol, sperm delivery with bike? first time I hear this. I almost died from laughing
