Doesn't look like it would stop too well; if he brakes too hard, he'll just start spinning inside the wheel!

I thought that would be the selling point.

And it's not even aero...

The guy probably sits upright, and the frame is probably draggier than a group of 3-4 racers combined!

Again, he can only climb so steep of an ascent. When it gets too steep, he will just start rolling head over heels back down! I saw a motorcycle version of this on Orange County Choppers or Monster Garage or something. The guy crashed pretty hard, and he had a big engine in it to keep his a$$ down and his head up.

I wouldn't worry about that, it's just a prototype.
