Another bike oddity to consider

I am not sure how or why this would be an advantage but take a look:

I'm guessing the pedal stroke would feel a bit different. Never having pedaled on anything but a bike with the drive on the right side, I have no awareness of what actual difference may exist in workload on each leg with a single side drive. Could it be a more equal distribution, or require more pressure on the down-stroke on the left side than one usually gives?

Still trying to figure out how you can do arm curls and triceps exercises with this thing as they claim. Maybe you just use the bike like as set of dumb bells and do them?
