I'm sure it will prove very popular and will be appropriately feeted. The wheels appear to have quite a kick.

I guess you would have to put the swim fins on for going in the water. It would like a genetically modified duck.

Is it sponsored by NIKE?

From the looks of the rear hub, it must be a free heel.

It can do 0 to 20mph in 12 feet.

Can you imagine being run over by that thing!

Would it feel like being run over by Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble when they were wearing shoes?

Speaking of never a flat, I haven't had one now in over 6,000km.
