Aren't concept ebikes fun?

They can be so interesting when they are not limited by actually being produced. Here is one I like:

I am not sure how this thing would handle with that degree of tilt in the steering.

There are things I like about the concept, but I would guess you are correct that this thing would flop around like a dead fish if you actually built it :confused:

The pedal crank isn't in the centre either.

Wouldn't that make for an uneven pedal stroke?

Not to mention that there is no way to adjust for different height riders...

I have a feeling this designer has never ridden a bike, let alone built one.
