I'd be concerned about the longevity of the plastic (though a surprising number of Iteras are still on the road), and I can't imagine it would fit someone my size. Interesting concept, but I'd need to compare those measurements to other bikes to see whether it might work.

Interesting concept. Has a working prototype been fabricated?

Heh... I like the mech suit concept better.

That's interesting, though. I'd like to see a working prototype.

Judging by the bike's geometry, this is an art school class assignment, and not the labor of love of a bike designer.
