Really bad idea for riding on ice, but obviously a very good idea for drawing attention to yourself on you tube.

At least someone was sharp enough to catch that the rotational direction of the wheels were not matching.

If you rode in a circle it would cut a hole and you would drop into the water, just like on the cartoons!

May not be cutting edge tech, but however you cut it, it's innovative.

Needs a Brooks saddle. But still useful to clean your tubeless tires.

If shredding the weight is your goal, this bicycle might be the answer.

I can’t wait for his wood chipper cargo trailer to come out.

He didn’t reinvent the wheel, nor the original chainsaw.

That thing is gonna be hell in a crosswind.

It certainly lumbered along slowly, though. I’m board. Wood you like to know why?

The blind cyclist picked up his bike and saw.

You might consider putting your inquiry in the local circular ad.
Lemme axe you; Were you caught off guard of the shear size or did the creator make something that you saw dangerous?

Now that you mention it, I thought the builder was really going against the grain on that bike. Quite a kerf-uffle, isnít it? The jig is up, though, so he miters well just admit that he ripped that idea from the ancient scroll depicting how to build a war bike. Of coarse, itís fine, if thatís the bike he wants to ride. Any way you slice it, that bike could leave you in the dust with enough watts spinning the pizza cutters.
