I could swear that I saw an infomercial for these things a few years ago. Once you kick off and get rolling initially, you can apparently propel them by swerving back and forth with the handlebars, kind of like a fish swimming. I have no idea if this is very effective or not. Regardless, they don't look very fast or like much of a smooth ride with those tiny wheels in the back. Weird idea though.
