Early Marin Indian Fire Trail? :facepalm: :lol:
Awesome.Never seen one before.Reckon that's the best 'utility' bike I've seen.All it needs is a crank powered water pump.

Just incredible the uses he wheeled contraption has been put to 8)

If we were to replace those statues from the past, Im for proposing sculpture of Humans technological achievements, and the bicycle stands tall in that group.

I agree totally.It almost defies physics.Seems to me that compared to running/walking/swimming over the same distance,it takes much less energy and a much higher speed is possible.Even though you add 10kg+ to your bodyweight.
It's like magic.
Also has the potential to save mankind. :D
