Watch this bike live its best life as a musical instrument

Your turbo trainer sessions are never this good

This bike-based cover puts a new spin on Sia's Cheap Thrills

Attempts to combine bicycles and the arts are sometimes horribly cringey, but not so in this video, which is a solid cover of Sia's Cheap Thrills delivered via the medium of a singlespeed bike on a turbo trainer, plus vocals from singer Kina Grannis.

Produced by YouTuber Kurt Hugo Schneider, who's known for his creative compositions, the song makes clever use of various parts of the bike including its brake levers, drivetrain, cables and more. 

Give it three and a half minutes of your time, we promise you won't regret it.
