carter: Huh, they have larger wheels to deal with the 1:1 gearing. So even larger wheels would give you a better gearing. But to avoid a huge frame length, they'd have to be assymmetrical. Maybe you just make the front wheel really large and pedal/steer with that, and then have a small trailing wheel for stability.
I can see this thing being steampunked pretty quickly.
Anyway, I never really got the hate for this sort of thing around there. So it's probably not a revolution. It does play around a bit with ideas about minimalism, low maintenance, simplicity, and style however. Why not?
If your city has a good bikesharing system, you don't need to figure out where to stuff your bike when you're not using it. You also generally don't have to worry about maintenance or theft.
