    Looks like an April 1 story. Would love to see them try to sell this on Dragon's Den...

    This actually looks more practical:

    What's innovative about that? The first bicycles were push powered....

    Wrapping the frame over the top of your head doesn't make it innovative, just stupid.

    The first bike i ever had was a Raleigh Chipper (also in yellow) that had the crank arms removed, so i had to push it around in much the same manner. Couldn't wait to get a "Proper" bike. .... No ones going to buy that monstrosity.

    There's a solution looking for a problem, if ever I saw one.

    However, this is interesting;

    Has the potential to improve the folding/commuter bike situation
