Fliz Pedal-less Bicycle is Powered by Running, Makes Me Tired Just Looking at It

by Conner Flynn

Check out this totally useless bike that makes you do all of the work. It’s called the Fliz and it doesn’t even have pedals. The idea is that you hang suspended from the frame above and run. It’s kinda like the Flintstones’ car.

Why bother? This is basically walking or running with a frame tied to your back. I guess if you have a bunch of downhill runs it wouldn’t be so bad. It’s a cool design I guess – it just doesn’t seem practical. Maybe it could be used for those older adults that need walkers. It would certainly make them faster.

Or maybe it’s for people who are just to lazy to walk with their bodies unsupported. I just don’t get it, but I still appreciate the effort of the design.

    I am arthritic and need exercise. I lose my balance a lot and am unable to walk fast enough for it to be a good cardio workout. I cannot ride a bicycle because my knee does not have the range of motion to pedal. This bike would allow me to get a good work out without falling down and without the pain in my knee. I don’t care that it looks Takei. Where can I get one, and how much?
