    Check it. Put it on a better frame with a little low gearing and some clipless pedals and you'd have 2 things... A machine to work on balance and a spinning workout. Put 2 wheels on the back and your really on to something.

    I like that. With a little tweaking, that thing could really work. If you put some different tires on the front or moved the mover to the back, you may be on to something.

    It's would be a lot cheaper than buying a gas powered one, and it would make cutting the grass and doing trail work a lot more fun...

    I think it would work better if the mower was towed from behind somehow. I don't see that version working too well on the corners, as the outside wheel would always lift up.

    Out of my mind, back in a moment.
    That would be an interesting thing to ride, that's for sure.
