From Russia, With Bike

Posted on Jun 22 2009 - 12:01pm by L.

Gennady Kolesnikov, a self proclaimed inventor philosopher from a small mining town of Gukovo in the Russian Federation, a town previously unknown for its philosophical or inventing prowess, attempted to improve upon bicycle design by adding an extra wheel… While for some, the idea of inventing a “better” tricycle immediately conjures up valid questions about alcohol consumption in the Russian South, others may simply accept this invention as “interesting” and “different”. While Mr. Kolesnikov touts advantages of his invention like not needing a bike chain or a kickstand, and dubiously claiming “maneuverability” , his critics ask sobering questions like WHY and WTF.
