    septuplet tricycle

    i'm pretty sure its single speed, so i'm posting about it here.

    its some ridiculous contraption i've seen a few times. 7 people sit around in a circle frame, all with a set of pedals, and i dont really know what its for, besides people with too much money (costs 19 grand) and 6 friends

    anyway, whenever i see it they're riding down a sidewalk in chicago, is that legal? should they be in the street? its probably atleast the width of a car.

    i have so many questions, but its 3:30 am, so this is the best i can do

    eheheh...i think those are called conference bikes. But even cooler than those are the bar ones.

    Check out the link in your pic and you'll find your answer. I was in The Big Apple about a year ago, and we rented one of these for an hour and rode around Times Square - it was GREAT FUN, and is definitely THE WAY to see New York City!

    the fact that these are marketed as corporate team-builders makes them infinitely funnier/more depressing.
