Accepting this unofficial slang, could a description of a bicycle be 
[qughwI'Hom]?

Before I'd re-read/found this email I had been thinking of describing a 
bicycle as a "leg powered vehicle" or "leg energy transporter"
{'uS HoS lupwI'} then at first seeing references to the unofficial use of 
Duj and then here qughwI' ['uS HoS Duj] or ['uS HoS qugh]

However I wonder if you can use leg energy in that way.. so thought maybe 
qughwI'Hom would be better and shorter.

What does anyone else think?
