Would this bike be illegal in ten states?

(And yes, this is, of course, stupidly dangerous)

    Cute, but can you imagine breaking all your fingers when you crash? :P

    who says you have to get off your bike to street fight.
    after all force= mass x acceleration.

    Ouch, I can’t imagine the pain of breaking all of my fingers on this thing!

    Maybe they should add a seat belt too!! Double the pain!

    would you do that? Not one to point out things that should not be on Make blog but this in one of them. I have a playing card in my spokes – does it warrant a post?

    Not *that* much more dangerous than a fixed gear bike to begin with; if you’re going to have a bike without brakes, you might as well hold on for the ride :)

    This bike is clearly as much a fashion statement as a means of transport (nothing wrong with that in principle), so we should be surprised if practicality is given a back seat to ‘looking like a bad-ass with knuckledusters’.
