Instead, his videos showcase his creations from idea stage to design, the actual build, and the first tests in real life. They're edited to be fun, light, and notably short, making the science behind each project more digestible for an audience who might not have the basic knowledge to understand the many hours of hard work that go into them.
The Q has a soft spot for unique bicycles, which start as traditional, round-wheeled, pedal-powered machines and become feats of engineering that border on artworks. His projects, without fault, are incredible examples of creativity and skill and proof that the fine but usually uncrossable line between what's possible and what's not doesn’t exist. For him, it doesn't, at the very least.
Bicycles have been around for almost two centuries, and the one thing that has never changed about them, even with the advent of electric and motor-assisted bikes, is the shape of their wheels. Come to think of it, the wheel has always been round, and it's worked just fine for us. But let not physics and tradition stop The Q from playing around to create something new!
To start, The Q used a standard, albeit a bit rusty, bicycle with double suspension, front, and rear. He removed the wheels and set out to re-engineer the arms so as to prevent too much vertical movement. But first, he built the new triangle-shaped wheels.
Once every component was done and prior to the assembly, The Q added a fresh coat of paint in more vibrant red and orange, an improvement over the plain silver of the original machine. At first sight, you can't see the rollers that are now part of the drivetrain, or if you do, you probably won't be able to guess just how big a part they play in the way the bike functions.
"Triangle wheels can be comfortable!" The Q says in the description. "Actually, with this type of suspension almost any wheels shape would feel like normal round ones [sic]."
That's not to say there's no difference between this contraption and any other standard bicycle because that would be a huge stretch. The little we see of True Triangle in motion is not indicative of how it would perform in real life, riding over different terrain, at different speeds, or at different gradients. It just shows that, despite what your brain might tell you to the contrary, a bicycle with triangle wheels can be a functional machine.
Like the square-wheel bike we discussed in a separate story, this over-engineered two-wheeler is awesome because it exists when there's no reason why it should and because it works when we all know it shouldn't. It might be the noisiest thing since the bike with legs, but it is what it is. It's here to defy physics, logic, and expectations, to break the brain and show that everything is possible if you have an analytical mind and the skills to carry out whatever said analytical mind comes up with.
