Giant Kinetic Motion Pennyfarthing Big Wheel Bike Thing

March 30, 2015

This is the Boneshaker Big Wheel, the brainchild of Ron Schroer. Pedaling powers a bunch of Theo Jansen kinetic motion sculpture inspired walking legs in the rear that push the bike forward. It is probably not the bike you want to be riding if you're trying to get away from the cops. It is definitely the bike you want to be riding if you're interviewing for a job with a carnival and want to set yourself apart from the rest of the weirdos.

Keep going for a video of the thing in action.

Thanks to Jessica E, who has never seen a more flammable bike in her life.

    This is part of the One Spark crowdfunding festival in Jacksonville, Florida. The project creators hinted that they might have a new one this year, I'll see if I can get a video of it.
