A two seat unicycle?

Click above for more shots of the Bi-Cycle tandem bike

What do you get when you combine two unicycles into one machine? A headache, if you ask us. And questions too. For instance: Who's leading who? With the Bi-Cycle tandem bike, the two riders face opposite sides of each other, leaving both seemingly in control of steering duties. There are no brakes, so stopping would most likely be accomplished when the tandem riders run into something... like the ground. A quick glance at the company website shows that somebody has spent way too much time figuring out how to make this contraption work, as various permutations appear to have been considered and abandoned along the way.

We're pretty sure that this machine is meant purely for fun though, so we can cut it some slack. Riding it, though, would be another story completely. I'm not sure that I trust anybody that much. If you want to see a video of the Bi-Cycle in action, follow past the break.


The video meant to be presented here is no longer available. Sorry for the inconvenience.
