Donkey Bike

Im not a folding bike guy (so far) but I loved this clip so much I thought I'd share with with all y'all. Good thing there weren't many potholes in London on 1966 or maybe there were and that was the downfall of the Donkey bike.

Pretty awesome. Why is the penny-farthing still so famous while something like this has faded into obscurity?

Try riding one up or down a steep hill. Or in snow/gravel/any non-road surface. I wouldn't ride one of those on my old commute route on a dare.

That is the dumbest bike thing I've ever seen, and I think penny-farthings are neat.
