No Pedals Or Even A Saddle

CH21I guess this feature is mainly for entertainment. I bet none of you is going to be convinced to buy this environmentally friendly, no saddle, no pedals ride by Flitz. It features a unique frame resembling the old style of hobby horse bikes dating back to the early 19th century and used at the time to speed up the walk doing errands. With this new version, you strap yourself, use the 5-point belt with the belt replacing the saddle and letting you adjust to your preferred riding position. Then you cycle/run. There will even be foot rests attached to the back forks so that the rider can rest your feet while coasting and/or going down hills. Still a prototype with the inventor stating that he his ready to go in “mass-producetion” and that he is about to revolutionize the way we ride. Not sure of this…

    Both of my sons learned to ride a bike on wooden no-pedal bikes. Got balance going early.

    As for this fascinating contraption, it’s interesting. What about brakes? As a runner and a bicyclist (besides the shovelhead), the appeal of combining both is…not sure. The bicycle (mountain bike, in my case) does one thing, and running does something else. Putting them together seems like you loose a little of each.

    I can see some redneck laying at the bottom of hill, all twisted up in this thing after saying, “Hold my beer. Watch this”.

    Has front and rear disc brake, yeah I would ride it. But strapping my fat butt in that thing??………peace

    I guess it would be a nice experience getting the legs sucked into the rear wheel while running down a hill in full speed…

    Wouldn’t it just be easier and less expensive to just jog, or run.Looks like a torture device, and a large waste of cash.

    It is supposed to be like running without the impact on your bones?

    I can see where that would be beneficial.

    How about a Cruiser with the Walk-Thru? That makes a lot more sense………….

    Cruiser Bicycle (Boss), not Motorcycle!

    Not sure how it would adjust for varying heights of people .

    Don’t think the runner/rider would stand much of a chance in an accident…. strapped in to a frame that will fold on impact. I’ll stick to conventional motorcycles where if the worst happens, I can seperate from the machine
