Well, I don't.

What a load of ball..ks!

IMO it shouldn't be posted in 'General Cycling Discussion' but maybe in 'General Stuff That will Be in the Skip in 6 Months Time Discussion'.

Skip = Dumpster in US I think.

Yes, I like her pedaling technique.... The ball bike, however is ridiculous.

Only thing it's missing is the wheels. Then it would make me interested for another 2 seconds.

How would 15% ball drop figure into the performance of the BallBike?
