This is sooo cool my son was saying a few days ago he would like to have a go on one, but this is a bit pricey, good find though :)

Too expensive and not the best ride..cold.Just wonder how many of these they sell.
#3
just like the good old days.they don,t make bikes like this any more(they obviously do)
#4
are they on offer in sports direct?
#5
I believe they have races on these on Holland.....at least they used to, I know a guy who came off one in a pile up and he broke both arms, in several places and collar bone!

Its an expensive novelty, cannot see the lack of gears making for an easy ride. If it;d been 100 quid I might have gone for one
#8
Why are people voting hot? It's a rip-off and if you REALLY want one of those you can get it a lot cheaper elsewhere! Very cold.

Has that thing got off road tires on ! :)

Riding one of these in public is just asking for trouble from motorists / local kids ;)

A bit disingenuous top call this a penny farthing. Real ones had a front wheel of around 50/60 inches - not 36 as in this model. Which means no good for speed which was the advantage of this type of bike over the early 'safety' bikes. Oh an the occupation hazard is taking a 'header' ...

I expect this will appeal to the same people who bought the unicycles from Home Bargains.
