    What do you all think of this urban 'bike' concept?

    I'll stick to a bike with pedals that I don't need a harness to ride! Interesting info though

    Look at the way that harness hugs his man bits. Looks mighty uncomfortable and awkward. Weird for sure!

    Also, while decending could be fun going up would be a chore

    Imagine not being able to stop at a light and sit up and stretch...

    Now another link on that site, down at the bottom, for the cardboard bike, sounds more interesting...

    Looks like the Laufmaschine 200 years later, except the 1817 version looks more comfortable.

    That doesn't look comfortable at all! I'll stick with my regular bike, too.

    Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Continue to learn. Appreciate your friends. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is.

    and "lady balls" for the female parts. On one of our MANY loooong bike rides last summer in prep for our Ironman, my best friend and I came up with that one after a particularly bad case of "lady bit crunch." We would always refer to them as LB's. We had a lot of time to fill with convo- don't judge.

    I used to ride with a woman who referred to lady balls/bits as her "Girlsteiner" as a play off of the pro cycling team, Gerolsteiner. Of course, all the men we rode with eventually figured out what we meant when we'd complain about our girlsteiners hurting, but we all got a good laugh out of it!
