I looked & found out Frank wasn't kidding; there are actual pulse jet bicycles out there! Amazing, if a bit loud.

You're right. This would be a small boost, more of a novelty than anything else. Unless of course it were paired with a battery & electric motor like Dean Kamen is working on. This is what got me looking at other designs, like the nutating disc; that would have some punch to it, though it would be much more challenging to design & build. OTOH, it could run on steam!
