  • “His Laufmaschine had two 27-inch wheels placed in a line” – So he also invented the 650b/27.5 wheels?

    Not surprised they were banned in the early days. Kids are still having shocking accidents on balance bikes: https://youtu.be/QnFSstN1Y3o

    I wonder if the first ever bike ride was a coffee shop ride? I was going to go with 27″ wheel gag, but it’s already been done a month ago???

    La draisienne est une grande invention, qui permet à notre époque d’initier, les petits à partir de 2 ans, au vélo.
    Je suis Organisateur de courses de draisiennes en France et cette vidéo de course au Japon, me révolte car on y retrouve pas les enfants se faisant plaisir, s’amuser, se respecter.
    Je vois là une course de lévriers, ou l’on pourrait faire des paris. A l’image de ce petit qui chute et qui reste au sol….
    Si vous voulez voir des enfants qui s’amuse, venez voir le kidsriderbike-challenge.com.
