    If you are still walking, what's the point?

    It's not quite as bad as the picture makes it out to be. There's a video in the link that shows it in use.
    I just thought it was about the most ridiculous picture they could have picked, though. It's certainly not doing them any favors.

    "Instead, riders are strapped into a harness and move by walking or running."


    Walking or running alone aren't good enough? I don't see how simply walking or running is less desirable than walking or running with a stupid banana-looking thing holding your body up by the crotch.

    I would ride bikes but they are just too fast for me. Plus, if I get into an accident, I want to be strapped to that tumbling piece of metal. Problem solved. Danke!

    I assume you can walk/jog up to speed and then there are some sort of footholds on the back wheel so you can coast?

    You can still put you feet up on the pegs and coast.

    I can't help but picture Lucca on one of these.

    yeah, eliminating the ability to bail out in an emergency seems like an oversight.

    Looks like fun to me... Way less chance of falling over, and my chestnuts wouldn't go numb since there is no saddle.

    Looks great for going down hills, aside from the crashing part.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    Cool. I always wanted a bike that matches my vacuum.

    and when you're at a stoplight and someone walks up and steals your wallet, you can watch them run away while you attempt to unbuckle your harness.
