Way to go *jack*, great I

Snowy, the guy on front depends on which way they are going, eh? I wonder how long it takes to switch the lead direction.

Good one LO

Craziness. It would be cool if they could use the same wheels, but place the riders about 1' from the ground, between the wheels. That would make for a very stable ride, I think.

OH!!!! With that same idea you could make the bike a recumbent, with one rider stacked on top of the other, like bunk-beds.

That just confirms that bicycles are the work of the devil!!!

Although he may not be absolutely confined to earth (e.g. Job 1:6), the earth is where Satan now rides and has his throne -

It looks terrifying just thinking about an abrupt stop. I wonder if the guy in the back loses his breakfast, will it hit the wheel and come back on him 3-4 times??

Yah, its a real bike. Didi holds the record for the worlds' largest
working bike (or something like that) I remember seeing a piece
on Didi and the bike on the Tour coverage (don't remember which
year).
