    Oh sure! I can't even stay upright on a bicycle lately!!! I would be falling like crazy on that, though it does look kinda fun. Didja see the photo of one of 'em riding down stairs on it? Right!

    But you do have to give them credit for showing it being used by riders wearing helmets!!

    Huh?

    Why treadmill when you can walk? Or run? Or - obviously - bike?

    Does anybody seriously like treadmills that much? How bizarre.

    I do not even like treadmills. At least they showed him wearing a helmet.

    Finally! A way for me to walk outside without contaminating myself with... earth! Now if only they could do away with that pesky outdoor smell...
