    It sounds like clever advertising spam. Where can I buy a kick bike?

    Oh a scooter….

    A penny farthing with a pillock between the wheels.

    I must have lived a sheltererd life, because today I saw something I’ve never seen before. Grown men riding/pushing scooters (kick bikes) around the Purbecks. This whole experience has left me feeling damaged, dirty and scarred for life. I’m sorry but these things and the people that ride them are wronguns. The whole experience was made more farsical by watching one of the guys argue with the ferry man that it wasn’t a bike and therefore he should have to buy a bike ticket for the crossing. All for the sake of a quid wtf.

    Looks a bit like a dirt surfer for people who can’t steer one

    fella did the paris-brest-paris audax on one of them.

    I think the lycra is unnecessary, but would have a go on one after a few jars.

    They’d be good for kids who can’t skate (like the micro scooter), but for a full grown chap…

    469 Euros (for the blingy one) and you can fit a basket to the front 😉

    I bet we’ll be seeing these everywhere soon though:

    Just showed my wife and her response was ‘WTF are those?!? are they for people who never learnt to ride a bike?’

    Summed it up quite nicely I thought!

    People are always trying to invent something thats a sort of clever off road gravity powered thing, like a mountain board say

    but they always end up with a rubbish bike

    but I’d have seen them it would have made my day…..

    Remember their being a team of them at Mayhem in 05, in the wet, they were last by a very long way. Couldn’t ‘ride’ up, nor down the hills. I just think you look special!

    I think my earlier comment was a little unfair as they do seem to provide enjoyment. I think I would give them a go provided the rear wheel had a chain device so I could drive it via pedals, I’d then add a saddle to sit on and make the wheels equal size so they don’t look as special. Oh hang on that’s been done.

    I remember having one of these in the 80’s. BMX scooter or “scootex” as they were known as, back in the day.

    Seems wrong on many levels to me.

    Each to their own.

    they’re nothing new, they’ve just made them appealling to old people by putting a big front wheel in 😛

    do you swap legs, or just drive with one leg?
    surely you’re just going to end up with one disproportionately large arse cheek?
