    I don’t want to rain on anyones parade….but this bike is near unfeasible unless as a track bike.

    Given that road debirs would get caught in the mechanism where drive meets rim, this instantly becomes a problem.

    Worse still as a tandem any pedaling out of sync between the two riders will cause flexing forces and break the juncture point.

    Nice idea in a virtual world…otherwise nonsense.

    I love Green Habitat to bits, but i wish they would look at practical stuff that has actully been built.

    Granted it’s pretty looking
