Check out the new bike that the Germans are designing. They are designing a new bike that has no pedals. You run, like a Flinstone and put your foot on the foot rests and ride it out! Check out this guy riding this bike in broad daylight in Germany, and it was a design that was created in 1817 and this is the new prototype for the new bike. Would you buy a bike like this?

Read this write up by Yahoo! - The latest in modern bicycle innovation takes some cues from the fictional mode of transportation used in the “Flintstones” cartoon. A new bicycle design by German engineers does away with pedals and requires the rider to run or walk to generate speed. Dubbed the new “Fliz Bike”, it is actually based on the world’s first bicycle, “Laufrad”, which also operated without pedals and was created German inventory Karl Drais in 1817. “The prior aim of developing FLIZ was to bring a completely new driving experience to everyone,” designers Tom Hambrock and Juri Spetter write on their website. “Its laminated, innovative frame with 5 point belt system provides a comfortable, ergonomic ride between running and biking.” Riders of the Fliz must strap themselves into a harness (the “5 point belt system”). After building up enough speed, they lift their legs onto footrests located near the bike’s rear wheel. “The frame integrates the rider and due to its construction it works both like a suspension and like a top carrier whereas the belt replaces the saddle and adjusts your position,” the designers write.”
