Could you imagine if they made a bike with legs thats faster than tradition wheels maybe something that mimics the force of a hourse leg activated by crank power ...

I thought the "Smallest Bicycle" was hilarious. Gotta wonder how long it took the guy to learn how to ride it.

I noticed those boys on the tall bikes didn't stop at the STOP sign!

That spider leg bike. Could you imagine the carnage on a fast, steep downhill!

I really like the spokeless bike. They didn't include the couch bike or the transparent bike!

Did you notice how one of those tall-bike kids had a broken wrist? Golly, gee I wonder how that happened.

Videos suggest you start and stop by coasting from a peg before climbing up or after climbing down, much like penny farthing.

Or a simple pothole. Imperfections in the surface, as well as balance-control inputs, get magnified the higher you go up, same as a Genie lift.

I could see the spider bike flying apart from someone trying to ride it fast.

More likely from dismounting.

Dismounting those tall bikes is easy. Just fall over and try not to get hurt.
