Incredible indeed, but it looks like we won't be using something like this to pedal to work anytime soon. Image

Remember the gossamer albatross ?

Even if you could, parking is going to be an issue; imagine the size of the bike rack needed to lock up a dozen of those. :P

This is great and to think it was nearly 35 years ago.

Give he film a chance. Very much of its age.

I wonder how much power was the rider developing, and how much the entire assembly weighs, and how is the power transmitted to the rotors?

I like the way he tries to stear it by leaning over. They should have got Mark Chavendish to pedal it. He would have hit the ceiling and crashed it.
