Remember the split wheel bicycle by Ukrainian inventor, The Q? Well, clearly this man never settles for the sane because he just took the Just a Normal Bike Math 0.5 x 1 = 1 to the next level.
While most people are perfectly satisfied with how bicycle it is, YouTube personality, The Q, is constantly breaking the convention with the pedal-powered two-wheelers.
You have seen a power drill-powered skateboard, now meet a pair of inline skates that is powered by, well, power drills. I am sure the notion of powered inline skates isn’t new. We have even seen a motorized, off-road creation, but somehow, this power drill-powered inline skates created by The Q look super cool and …
The Q has done it again. After dishing out a host of odd vehicles, such as a walking bicycle, saw blade wheels bike and hoverboard with F1 wheels and tires, the man has created yet another odd transportation device that rolls on Formula 1 wheels and tires.
You have seen a car with saw blade wheels crossing a frozen lake and you probably have seen RC cars with saw blade for wheels cutting through powdered ground and dirt tracks. Now, meet a bicycle with saw blade wheels and it too, wants to ride over a frozen lake.
I am sure you have seen enough of the tensegrity structures that went viral a couple of months ago. For the uninitiated, tensegrity is a structure that uses tensional integrity aka floating compression to enable isolated components to kind of magically stay afloat with just flexible ropes or strings.
YouTube channel, The Q, has over 10 million subscribers. Not surprising given that he haven’t stop dishing out mind-blowing DIY stuff. One of his latest creations, while not as outlandish as the hoverboard with actual F1 wheels and bicycle with legs for rear wheels, is a thing of beauty. Because, wood works.
Formula 1-inspired hoverboard looks cool and all. It has the nosecone, front wings and sleek lines that makes it recognizable as F1-inspired, but it does not have actual Formula 1 wheels, does it? Nope. It doesn’t.
There are reasons why hub-less wheels did not catch on and why spokes are still widely used. Spokes in two-wheelers like bicycles and motorcycles also serve to absorb some form of shock.
Remember Theo Jansen’s incredible kinetic sculpture, Strandbeest (which also happens to have a toy version)? Well, YouTuber/maker extraordinaire most noted for creating stuff out of cardboard, The Q, has incorporate that complex walking mechanism into… a bicycle. Yes! A walking bicycle!
