Today we had a bit about monowheels, so here’s another type of cycle, a propellor bicycle that’s not quite working yet, but that’s ok, it’s the propellor-bicycle thought that counts – photos & video.

    This looks like the most dangerous contraption on the planet. And whats up with the cinderblock seat???

    Thankfully I’m not the only one who thinks this is a BAD IDEA. low speed fans are dangerous, the larger the prop is the more force behind it, if anything gets in its path it will destroy it. he needs to cage that ASAP

    Gotta agree – CAGE THAT PROP! Make is supposed to be about “voiding the warranty,” not “amputating the arms.”

    YES! I love that. I’d ride it just like it is. No guards, no seats, no working brakes! Tall bikes are out, propeller trikes are in!
