Treadmill + Bicycle = Treadmill Bike? WTF?

Treadmill + Bicycle = Treadmill Bike? WTF?


I see a lot of ridiculous things every day doing this job, but the Treadmill Bike has most of them beat. The theory is that using a treadmill is a great way to get exercise, but it can be quite boring. So, someone has taken a typical treadmill, put it on wheels, given it a handlebar and called it the Treadmill Bike.

To move this two-wheeled contraption you just walk or jog on the treadmill and a chain turns the wheels like pedals do on a normal bike. The tires are all-terrain, so you can do your treadmilling on-road or off. I hope that this is a joke.

The Treadmill Bike saves you the membership fees for your gym, but it doesn’t come cheap: it has a price tag of $2,500 Canadian dollars. If that’s too expensive, I have another device that combines the health benefits of walking with the convenience of transportation — they’re called shoes.
