Don't be in such a hurry to condemn a person because they don't do what you do, or think as you think. There was a time when you didn't know what you know today...

GRAHAM!

It looks like it needs some rubber and a little refinement. Reminds me of those airless tires that were shown on an A6 years ago.

ROB! Completely agree on the similarity. As concept art, this works, but I couldn't imagine taking a corner too quickly without ending up on your side. Those wheels were brought to you by the same company that did the original chairs on Top Gear, made from repurposed Rover seats.

This is neat, a little long, but is a glimpse into the life of the welder at FBM bikes.

What I'm wondering is what is a better use of energy. The guy getting off his bike and carrying it up, or the bunny hopper?

From my experience, hoping like that doesn't use that much energy, and I'm sure they are in better shape than me. :lol:

The only problem I can see is that the carrier can accelerate up the stairs whereas the hopper cannot. I'm sure the hopper can pedal sooner after the stairs, but these guys are pretty quick to mount/dismount.
