    While I can't understand the narrator, the voiceover makes the video take on too serious a tone. Still, a pretty cool find!

    I thought they where going to continue their Journey down the river or something but they all stopped. The funny thing is it would be easier to just pull out an inflatable canoe, shove the brompton in the front while you sit in the back and paddle downstream. That pontoon bike needs a good balance to be up that high with a good chance of flipping. But then again you can just ride the road that goes along the river hahah.

    cool find
    I can understand and it is a little overzealous and dramatic voiceover for something nobody really needs.
    It wont change all our lives either.
    In the time you rig the whole thing you can ride around the lake .... but that is not the issue anyhow...
    from a engineering standpoint it is cool no doubt ....
    from a safety on the water aspect : its a toy and better stays on shallow areas without any waves or any other traffic....

    those speedos look awful dont they .... I have to retire mine !
