Push-pull bike just might just go 100 miles per hour

Although the egg resonates a Lady Gaga's Grammys capsule...it is a bike.

Enter pop-culture flashback here:  

Instead of pedaling around in a circle, the rider of this bike uses a push-pull pedal system, which, according to Obree, gives the bike part of its aerodynamic magic: "The push pull arrangement means that the knees do not dip as far as would be the case with a circular movement, again reducing the frontal area and air resistance."

Wired also caught up on this article and took it a step further... into the physics of the matter. 

 

 

Either way, we dig ingenious innovation that pushes design norms!
