It is a design that is sure to turn heads around town German designers have revealed a bizarre bicycle with no pedals. Instead, riders are strapped into a harness and move by walking or running - much like Fred and Barney do in the Flintstones.
But the "Fliz" is not a homage to the Stone Age cartoon family. Rather, it pays tribute to what creators Tom Hambrock and Juri Spetter say is the first bike — a velocipede that predates the bicycle we all use today.The bike is fixed to the rider with a belt system suspended from the machine’s frame under which the rider is fixed into place.
The bike is an entry into the annual James Dyson Award for technology , innovation and design open to international students and founded by the Dyson vacuum cleaner inventor.
