    Pedicabbing good for sprint training?

    Imagine a pedicab loaded up with 4 people, or about 500+ lbs and in the course of 6 hours, powering these people through streets.

    Taking it a couple steps forward, having a pedicab custom fitted simulating track geometry, with drops instead of straights, and equipped with an SRM...

    I am just thinking of an idea... But maybe it would be no good.

    Or you could simply buy an ergometer and sit it in your livingroom


    By the way. Pedicabs use low gears, low torque, and low speeds. Track Sprinting uses high gears, high torque, and high speeds.

    Ever see a pedicab driver with legs like this?:
