    Someone trying to fix a problem the hard way.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    Great video. Remember the olden days when everyone rode horses for leisure? This guy should have tried a Brooks saddle before going through all that trouble.

    "Share the road with hyperbikes". Right. Why isn't it a tricycle? Does the third wheel not count because it's not always touching the road?

    Wow that's strange. But after all, any cyclist will tell you the worst thing about bicycling is the seat. I mean, these seats are torture!

    I heard that thing about the seat... and if that is such a big deal... well, there are always 'bents.

    It looks interesting, but I have no clue how I would transport what looks to me like a power loader from Aliens 2 in a normal vehicle.

    LOL.. that thing is a death trap.

    Click on the "more information" link, it's supposed to be geared 4:1 so you can go up to 50mph...

    I just did that. ....it is too tall to get in my garage. It needs almost as much room as my car to store it.

    All that can be wrong with a human powered vehicle, or an exercise machine, is wrong with this thing. And more.

    50 mph = I have a nice bridge for sale. It 's near you. I'll give you a good deal.

    "Three prototypes and looking for a partner". = I ran out of money and need more stuff to play with.

    His wife is gonna be pissed when she finds out he spent his entire trust fund on three of those things.

    Looks more like a kinetic sculpture than a viable means of transportation.

    Heh. Is it wrong that I want to see a bunch of these giant bikes battle it out in some kind of arena with flamethrowers and machine guns and big spikey balls?

    I just realized what will happen if that thing gets going too fast backwards, downhill. !!

    If you slam on the brakes too hard, the whole thing will flip over backwards. The front wheel will go up over the top and now be on the other side. You will be upside down. Really !

    No wonder they stopped making those the first time, around the turn of the century.

    What's up with the duct tape repair on the wheels?

    I mean, I like duct tape too, but come on!

    This stability is reinforced by both the frames' broad base, formed by the canted wheels, and by the power of the centrifugal force of the spinning wheels, pushing down on the road

    Where did this guy learn physics?

    The conventional bicycle is unstable and dangerous on the road.

    So that's why we fall down ten times during a ride?

    9) COLLAPSABLE

    Hmm...sorry, I don't see this fitting into the back of my SUV

    2) TURBINES in place of or paired with brakes will transform friction from stopping into electricity stored in cells to be used at crucial points as when restarting a hill ascent.

    Turbines??? Powered by...I thought we were using MUSCLE power, here!

    I could go on, but I have to get back to the real world.
