More of a walker instead of a cyclist, but you are a bit jealous on how fast cyclists are going ?

No need for that anymore, because now you can walk and be fast at the same time.


The first order of 5000 units have been placed, so I guess we will be able to buy them somewhere in the not so near future.

You can walk like you normal do, but go 4 times as fast and stay in shape too at the same time.

I cannot watch your video on my device.

Would you be so kind as to provide a short description of the vehicle in your op for us on lesser internet browsers?

It goes in the video a little bit up hill at 1:47 min, and needing to fight the wind in the Netherlands it will have some power I guess.

It`s a treadmill but on a bike and with electric power support, so you just walk normally but with a steer on two wheels, and it goes 4 times as fast without the need to costing more energy as normally with walking.

Yes like that, but this treadmill lays just flat.

I always like walking on airfields where they have those kinds of things and you just walk normally and go actual pretty fast, I think it will have the same feeling.

Actually, most bike seats hurt me so badly I can't enjoy riding. Might as well put a padded knob on top of the pole.

The guy that designed them must either be a sadist or he weighed a buck forty.

They have so many sizes of them nowadays, I`m sure there`s one who will fit your bum.

It`s actually pretty cool when you walked for an hour and have covered about 14/15 miles, short trips of about 3-5 miles would no take that long anymore.

There's a bicycle seat that has 2 separate little foam cushions to sit on, one for each cheek, with nothing in-between. It takes some getting used to because it doesn't automatically center you on the seat like the single-piece seats do, but it does move the riding sore spots from the more sensitive areas to the less sensitive cheeks.

It's not for everyone but I like it better than 99% of the other bicycle seats out there, after I got used to it.

The gadget in the OP seems a little complicated, but it is probably a lot more fun to do your treadmill that way where you can see some varying scenery, which should be better than the the static view from a stationary treadmill. On the other hand, you probably won't get run over by a car on your stationary treadmill, which could happen if you ride that in the street, though it shouldn't be any more dangerous than a bicycle.
