Being dyslexic, just looking at the videos of Boston-based bike-builder Michael Killian’s “sideways bike,” makes my noggin throb. You ride and pedal the bike sideways, and steer front and rear (independently). His site has numerous videos, pics, and links to media coverage of his various bike projects.

    does that remind anyone of the “wild wacky action bike” that was on south park a while back?

    This guy actually lives in Boston, MA, USA (unless he moved in the past couple months). I don’t know if he’s Dutch since I’ve never spoken with him.

    I will tell you, however, that those bicycles look like the most uncomfortable things in the world to use.
