Why Ride a Bike When You Could Hang From One — The ‘Laufradeln’ Will Confuse You
Sometimes, people take an existing idea and refine it in such a way that life is never the same. This is NOT one of those times.
What you’re about to see cannot be explained — literally. When we went to the YouTube page where this video lives, it actually said “No description available.” We couldn’t think of a better to describe the “Laufradeln,” a bike-like thing without pedals that you strap to your back and power by running.
It … might … have sounded like a good idea on paper, but in practice it looks uncomfortable, slow and annoying. The Laufradeln is probably a perfect machine for you if you have a compulsive need to be stared at — or if you like being strapped to metal arches. (Hey, no one’s judging. Okay, that’s probably not true.)
Just a heads-up — this video has no sound, because apparently it wasn’t creepy enough already.
I think this comment from the YouTube page sums it up pretty well.
