    That was my thought. Probably super aero though.

    Can you imagine coming up with the idea to make it? Then to design it and make the pedals to fit and to support the weight, and then for what purpose? Someone had to much time on their hands I suppose.

    The saddle definitely need to go back some. Maybe a bit higher, too.

    I like it. No need to deal with a bike rack on the car. I could keep my bike in my purse.

    I posted that video because I expected there would be some amusing responses to it. I was not disappointed. I've been chuckling all day.

    The bike looks fine, but the rider needs to quit mixing Human Growth Hormone in with his Red Bull.
