Hard work is the point of that thing.

I saw one months back during my lunch break on the corner of Queen and Bourke Streets, Melbourne. It didn't look like fun to me. :P

Okay, you caught me. It did look like fun. But hard work. And if I remember correctly the one I saw even had the elliptical movable handlebars (not the normal bicycle handlebars in the link).

Someone on crazyguyonabike.com went all American and tried touring on one of them. Hard work...

When I get old enough to need one of those I'd rather go for a velomobile :D

If that isn't the stupidest looking numpty I've ever seen... well... it is...

I could take it more seriously if they had a Playboy model in a bikini using it. Sexist? Dumb? Crass? At least you knew they were trying... the models cost a bit more too. The pic implies Heavens Gate Commune a little too much to me.

Seen one regularly on the M7 Cycleway, an Australian company makes them.Not cheap but if it's your thing it would be a great workout.

Being hot doesn't excuse a lack of taste in your bicycle purchase. Thumbs down regardless.
