The site looks pretty believable, but the concept is so flawed it makes you wonder: didn’t anyone stop to think this brings no benefit over running, but adds all the disadvantages of riding a bike? (i.e. being unable to climb steps, carrying bulky equipment around, storing it, maintaining it—and finally, what they’re most interested in—paying for it)

That bike looks about as real as my chances of becoming a catholic priest.

Well, it has this known line from Napoleon Dynamite, “Take it off some sweet jumps! “

...And the only province you can use it in is Ontario.  Everyone knows people in Ontario get exercise by shoveling snow.

Did you notice the other bikes on the site? The couch bike, the picture of the giant chicken paddle bike…. I think this is just a site for people that like building weird things, but hey, if someone else wants to actually buy one, I’m sure they’d part with it and build another.

It may be a joke, but it looks like they really did build the bike. So that’s real.

It’s too funny to be real!

Auxilium meum a Domino

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures
He leadeth me beside the still waters
He restoreth my soul

He leadeth me
in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake
Yea, though I wal through the valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil, for thou art with me
Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me

Thou preparest a table before me
in the presence of mine enemies
