As is evident from the email we sent out to subscribers this morning, we like to have a little fun on April Fools' Day.

To keep it going and give you some ideas for next year, here's a list of some of the best bike pranks on the Web.

2. Stick stuff down the seat tube

3. Make a big hole in a bike path, fill it with water and cover it up

Yeah... we wouldn't recommend this. Not only would it take a lot of work, but you might have a lawsuit on your hands. That doesn't mean it isn't funny, though.
