Bet that was the same thing someone said when the penny farthing was …Bet that was the same thing someone said when the penny farthing was unveiled for the first time.


The Penny Farthing didn't have you strapping two 250watt motors to each foot, which could go off in opposite directions and pretty much split you in half, and not in a good way.
Why are these, and others of similar ilk, called hover? They are attached the ground same as my car; with wheels.
Free trip to A and E included. They do look fun though, Heat
If you're buying these, I would recommend buying two sets and putting two on your hands and two on your feet. You could also put another two on your knees and one on your head.

I know which one I would feel more comfortable having a go at.

Yeh but what you don't know is you're actually hovering whilst sitting down

Can't help feeling they might be sponsored by a dental practice looking to ramp up their 'replace front teeth' business...

Someone's not heard of the Penny Farthing 3000

I have visions of people using these things like Frank Spencer on roller skates

I enjoy the odd icy black run when skiing but these look terrifying ! Perhaps a blow up sumo suit is mandatory
I can see A&E getting busier over the next few weeks.
How do you stop on these? Is it facial braking?
"Amidst all the fun be sure to stay safe and avoid the busy streets!"

Lol, rather than implying using these on quiet streets, just put in bold 'ILLEGAL ON PUBLIC STREETS, ROADS, PATHS & PARKS', which would make them pretty much pointless.
I bought a pair of Heelys when the kids got theirs about 5 or so years ago and i still cant do it, i'm thinking of trying a Zimmer frame instead

Please can you share an example of when being split in half would be in a good way?
Are these COVID proof or can the virus still transmit at these kinds of speeds? Asking for Boris.

The event horizon of a black hole? Depends how you define “good way”. Epic way or painful way.
Misread and thought that it was a new way of cleaning carpets.

Do you need to run a cable from one to the other?... maybe like the string you put on kids gloves, but up one trouser leg and down the other

Range up to 8km yet "only for domestic use" - ideal if you live in a substantial manor house. Ideal for scooting around a large hospital (and makes the trip to A&E that little quicker)
Can the batteries be re-charged if you grab hold of a vehicle bumper and enjoy the ride?
Make sure you take out dental insurance.
If you get done for using these on a road / pavement, do you get done twice for operating two vehicles without tax/insurance/mot etc?
Argos sell these as well argos.co.uk/pro….ds

Might be worth getting them too
