    A cycle (didn't say bike) with no seat?

    And the winner for the worst invention of the year is -

    Wonder how it handles a fast decent and foot in spokes at any speed.

    Not something you would see me using. I might as well just walk and save the money.

    Looks as if it wouldn't be too hard to stick a foot into the rear wheel.

    Let's see the video of him climbing a 4% grade, much less 6.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    There are a couple of similar contraptions being used locally. One fellow who weighed in at nearly 500 pounds used it to introduce a small amount of movement into his life. He was so heavy that he couldn't even walk. I haven't heard how successful this physical therapy has been, but it was apparent that he was enjoying moving under his own power for the first time in years.

    The original bicycle conveyance was called a Velocipede . . .
    It had no pedals.

    And it was invented in response to a dramatic two-year run-up in the price of the primary fuel used for transportation. That is to say, there were consecutive years of poor grain yields so the horses were getting a bit lean. I wonder how expensive gasoline would have to get in order to get significant numbers of Americans to use a bicycle for transportation these days. Maybe we'll find out soon.

    And people complain about bicycle seats being uncomfortable. Check out the critical junction of that harness.

    Might be fun to jog in... Less stress on the knees and probably a lot of fun on the decents.

    What a hideous product.
