    Hahah, (I am bad at math but) you would move the cranks 3 times before you turn the wheel once...it sounds like the ULTIMATE weekend warrior bike. You would work up a sweat just moving fast enough to keep your balance. "I reached my target heart rate without even leaving my driveway!" God forbid you ever encounter the downslope of a wheelchair ramp...Your legs would be ripped off!

    6x18 is the first bike slower than this: http://www.bikeforest.com/tread/index.php

    But 61x8 that's totally doable....I am running it right now, having more than one cog tooth in contact with the chain at a time is for *******.

    getting offtopic, i am sure this link has been covered somewhere in the forums but...

    the treadmill bike is so harmless. did you watch the videos? it is like only marginally faster than a normal treadmill.

    Plus those guys are primarily sellers of CAD software for designing custom frames...the bike is a gimmick that happened to work for getting their site traffic...I don't think they really plan to make it rich off of selling $2,500 treadmill bicycles.

    Why? It's a single speed. Maybe it's even fixed! Plus did you check out the video they have on their site of the sweet jumps you can do on it? Trust me, that's the new hipster ride.

    its as dumb as that bike someone posted in the ebay thread last week - the one that had two lever arms to move the chain. its like a recumbent to me.

    i officially declare this the OFF TOPIC thread.... let it roll.

    Yeah...but recumbents and hand cycles are jokes too right? Or at least I'm laughing when I see one on the lakefront trail on a sunny day (because they are never on the STREET or out during anything less than a sunny day).

    I have to say their is a heirarchy of bicycles (let's try to gloss over the conversion vs. track geom. vs. gears topic):

    road/track bikes
    |
    mountain bikes
    |
    ridiculously small bmx bikes and tiny things rode at circuses
    |
    unicycles and adult big wheels
    |
    Things welded together to look like a bicycle, i.e. kinematic sculpture
    |
    recumbents / other obscure drive mechanisms / rowbikes

    are you guys serious about the recumbents?
    i've known a number of people who've had injuries or whose anatomy won't let them ride a bike... they were however able to switch to bents and can know continue to ride...
    just be glad they're on a bike...
    christ this place is getting ****ing ridiculous...

    Hey, recumbents are the fastest human-powered vehicles! Who doesn't want to got 60+mph on level ground with muscle power?

    I'd so love to ride a speed demon 'bent once...

    i used to see a few guys riding recumbents back road hills when i lived in lancaster, i always felt nervous because it was a heavily truckered road and i was on a bike, but to be on a bike that's practically flat to the ground on that road, you're tough as balls, and yes i saw the same three guys everyday(which is alot, almost noone bikes in lancaster, this was total country road scenario, farms on each side the whole way, occasional buggy, and a whole ton of big rigs)

    Handcycles are very often used by people who can't use their legs to pedal a bicycle, but want to travel at the speed that bicycles allow. I'm sure you're not mocking the disabled, but just letting folks know.
