Fun on the cheap: bicycle inner tube jump rope

To make a bicycle inner tube jump rope you need:

  • a 26″, 700c, 27″, 28, or 29″ inner tube;
  • a pair of scissors;
  • and, a willing jumper.



  1. Cut the valve out of the inner tube with the scissors.
  2. Jump! Jump! Jump!


The big guy in the video is local artist/frame builder Steve Campos of Steel Fabricated Arts. The whole thing was his idea.

Any questions?
