Having to carry a 25 lb lock and chain negates the weight savings.

At $8k, it better have lojack. All carbon fiber I reckon... How much are the bikes they ride in the Olympics?

Yes, she rides competitively and for long treks - 25 or 50 miles is nothing for her.

Pierce Arrow had a side business of bicycles doing well, so they tried motorcycles too.

So now he can say he's the world's first triple front flipper. I hope there's big money in it for him. Doesn't seem like it's worth it otherwise.

Bragging rights? Street creds? Groupies? Maybe competition sponsorships, or paid appearances.


I'll stick to something safer.

I think she'd get callouses on the inside of her knees.

And her neck would get really tired holding her head up. She can't rest her neck by sitting up straight like you can on a regular seat.

Not to mention the pounding your elbows, shoulders, and lower abdomen would endure. Your bending elbows and knees act as shock absorbers for the millions of little bumps you encounter while riding.

It also looks like it would substantially less maneuverable than a standard bike.

She looks less than comfortable in both pics.

Stirrups (?) on the pedals would be an improvement, too.

Be ok for making porn pics, though, unlike this one.
