Now, the video has been uploaded to The Q, a YouTube channel with wonders we've covered before. The most familiar is a bicycle presented about a year ago, an ice cycle. While you'd expect any bike designed for ice-covered roads to boast nothing but some studded tires, what made this thing so out there was the fact that it used massive saw blades as wheels. Yes, the kind used to cut lumber; talk about grip.
As for this time around, the channel's host starts the video with what seems to be nothing but a bad spell, hitting a curb on his bike and breaking his rim. Instead of just grabbing a new wheel and replacing the existing one, the channel's host (possibly The Q himself) decides to get creative, and before we know it, he can be seen in a shop exploring his ideas.
Now, I'm sure you've asked yourself how these tires are holding any air in them; heck, they're cut in half. Well, the answer may surprise you and is rather budget-friendly, too, PVC piping. No joke, a PVC tube is inserted into the tire's air chamber and seems strong enough to have the host riding around town for quite some time.
Once all the necessary pieces have been prepared, it's time to go to town with rivets, welding, some cutting, lubing, and figuring out how to make the rear construction move in unison so as to never encounter an unsupported rotation; the two halves complete a circle when in motion. This is the real trick behind this bike.
The last few moments of this video showcase precisely the product of all that tinkering and questionable approach to building a working bike, and can I say that I am impressed. Why? It's exactly that; it works! Sure, it looks odd, but mathematics for the win, again. I wonder what we're going to be seeing next.
