    Elliptic Drive Bike

    http://www.elliptigo.com/

    This bike is based on an elliptic trainer, which simulates the motion of running.

    But it has no seat!

    "- No genital numbness, pain, or increased risk of urological problems" is actually one of its selling points? haha
    It's all fun and games till somebody gets hurt. Then it's just fun.

    That would be a nice addition. Personally, I like the look of an elegant saddle, and I like being able to sit down on something after riding for several hours, but it does take all kinds.

    I don't think it will catch on as something very practical, however it would be good for someone who actually likes the elliptical motion machines AND wants to get exercise and see the outdoors instead of the weight room...peace

    These things would be great for the novelty value but they won't sell well.

    You could tour fiargrounds etc and charge people for the novelty value of having a 'ride' on one but aside from that they aren't going to do very well.
