Boneshaker Bike

So I got first ride on a Boneshaker Bike otherwise known as the "Penny Farthing" today. A guy at work bought this off of ebay and brought it in to work today. I don't know if you guys have ever had a chance to ride one of these but its crazy. Its weird steering the same wheel you are pedaling. The first ride was sketchy but after a little bit it smoothed out. This thing is a wrist injury just waiting to happen though.

As always, wear a helmet. Didn't have mine but fortunately we had something comparable around the office.

I've always wanted to ride one of those things. That looks super fun.

I highly doubt that my riding around the parking lot during the lunch hour caused a shift in the stock. However, Johnson & Johnson's proposed purchase of SurgRX could have something to do with it.
