SOMETHING DIFFERENT...

By hobbo
I heard a strange swooshing noise behind me yesterday.... it was made by this unusual bike/scooter ...IĀ’ve just looked them up on YouTube....they look good fun, if you have the stamina.

It is foot operated, a bit like running, on the board pedals ..the up-down motion is transformed to rotary to drive the chain....

Wot no seat?? Looks fun but uncomfortable. Is it foot-powered or electric I wonder? Good shot of this man and his machine 👌

It's bad enough with these illegal electric scooters buzzing along our pavements at 20 mph. But, this looks like a heart attack machine in progress.

Stamina and a deep pocket.
My folding bike will have to do.

Why would you need this thing? What's wrong with a bicycle, there appears to be a lot of stuff here to go wrong, wear out, break, fall off, and how long will there be support for these? No, sorry, this is a solution to a problem that doesn't exist.
Thanks for posting though, just so I know what it is, if I should see one.
