Wanna a walking bike..?

Posted by tcle on April 28, 2008

We’ve always been jealous of those cartoon characters whose legs turn into blurry, rotating wheels when they run fast, so this new invention might be the closest we get. Wheel maker Max Knight created this bike for Intersection Magazine by replacing each tire with 8 sneakers (and socks!) and then turning each “spoke” into a sturdy, leg-like bar. But the question is…how does it ride? After the jump, see a video of the Walking Bike in action.
