Dicyclet

This is just an interesting idea putting wheels parallel rather than in a line.  I wonder how it rides?

The wheel is one of the most basic inventions in history. Fabels thought it was an interesting idea to use the wheel itself as a vehicle. To solve balance-problems two parallel wheels were used. The driver is positioned under the axle, which connects the wheels the driver’s body functions as a counterweight. During acceleration the chair swings slightly forwards. During a breaking maneuver it swings backwards and with extreme braking it can even make several 360-degree loops. Driver and vehicle are one.

The Dicyclet is designed and built together with Maik ter Veer.

There are several copies of the Dicyclet that have been made without consulting the inventors. If you ever encounter one off(sic) these falsifications the author invites you to joyride it.
