    Haha that is freaking awesome! Too bad the weight of the person riding it will leave marks in your yard (at least in certain parts of the country where the soil is softer) :(

    This is so awesome! I use a push mower on my lawn, and it would be so nice to have it be leg powered!

    Way cool!!!! First, I have to ask does this actually work? I think I would have to have a more “off road” tire to actually get it to move though…. how does it corner?
