Can you believe this contraption? Looks' like something out of a bad SciFi movie. I got this from the free About.Com Bicycling newsletter:
The operator of a Hyperbike uses a total-body climbing, swim-like motion to propel the Hyperbike, while balancing as if on a unicycle. The driver twists his torso, contracts the stomach and back muscles, and alternately extends the arms up and down as in a foot pedal motion, while coordinating with the legs to get the best push and pull from the lower pedals.
I'd like to try and control this thing coming of "Bald Mountain"Neyaaaahh!
