My Next Bike

There’s been a lot of rain lately, which means I have plenty of free time to surf the internet.  I’ve seen several interesting options for my next bike.  I can’t decide which one, so I decided to hold my first-ever blog poll!

I wonder if the Frenchman who chose the soundtrack to this video knows the song is about sorrow?

Changing a flat might be a problem…

Is it possible this lady has never heard of a draisine?

  1. Well, I don’t think I would chose any of those bikes, but since you put a poll out there I had to vote for the only one I would like to get on and try! 🙂

  2. I don’t really have a strong opinion one way or another, Steve, but I’d say stay away from the horizontal bike – I can imagine that (at least for a guy) riding it for any length of time could very well end up being a ‘constant sorrow’.

    • I’m not excited about recumbents. They are a bit awkward to handle and their low profile would have me perpetually worried that I was about to be hit by a motorist.

  3. Well, the horizontal bike seems vaguely obscene and the gliding bike reminds me of a children’s walker that almost killed me when I was 8 months old. So, I vote Mono Wheel. Plus, it looks very cool.
