The Bicymple

The Bicymple is a simple unicycle that removes the need for a chain. This working prototype was created by Josh Bechtel and Scalyfish Designs. The design is made of a CroMo Steel frame that is just two simple bars that run above and between the two wheels.

"By removing the chain, the number of moving parts and overall complexity is significantly reduced. A direct-drive, freewheeling hub joins the crank arm axis with the rear-wheel axis, shortening the wheelbase and minimizing the design. "
If your still wondering how do even ride this thing, then check out the video below and it will clear up a few things and demonstrate the interesting possibilities rear steering adds to your ride.
