so what does the Gravity Bike really do? as you probably have guessed – it doesn’t have any pedals but it lets you zip down hill while enjoying the sensation of the wind and the adrenalin rush associated with the speed. it is said that it can reach up to 50 mph (80 km/h), however, slower or faster speed is dependent on the gradient of the hill. sound like fun?
