Portlander Ryan Carpenter and his bicycle-blender will appear on ABC's "Shark Tank" Friday.

PORTLAND, Ore- It's one of the most popular shows on TV.

Hundreds of business owners have braved the waters of ABC's "Shark Tank",  trying to cash in.

Friday's episode will feature one of Portland's own.

Ryan Carpenter is the creator of Moberi. His food cart idea features tasty smoothies with a twist.

"Different than most blenders, you have to hop on a bike, give it (the blender container) a shake and pedal," Carpenter said.

The blender is attached to the front of an exercise-type bike, snuggled against the handle bars just above the front wheel.

He already has two carts in Portland but wants to expand. So he figured why not try dipping his toes in the tank.

He sent in a tape, and before he knew it he was on a plane to Los Angeles.

Carpenter said it was a great experience and customers KATU spoke with Friday say they hope he expands soon.
