Some images of this concept bike started floating around the Internet this past weekend on sites like fallingpixel.com and gizmodo.com.

I’m not the one to answer that, but I’m all about the idea of thinking outside the box, getting wild with things, and seeing where they lead. Who knows what this kind of ideas this concept drawing may spark in people… What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments!
