Sideways Bike A Bicycle With A Twist

In an effort to improve the flexibility of cycling on a regular bike, Michael Killian has invented a bicycle with a distinct twist, quite literally. The sideways bike allows the cyclist to travel sideways rather than straightforward with a more flexible and dynamic approach. All that is required by the cyclist is to convert the traditional left to right balance, to a more complicated front to back balance. All well in theory, but this change is more difficult to adapt to than one would think.

The bike also exhibits wheels which work independently allowing more control (after much practice) as to the direction you would like to manoeuvre in. With this in place, it becomes possible to move straight, diagonally even in circles if you so desire. Killian showcased his bike invention on the 'Would you make something better?' TV show, where the bike was first shown.

Anyone wishing to travel on this sideways bike is recommended to wear a helmet until you familiarize yourself with the controls. The bicycle is a strange idea, one which takes a common method of transport and makes it more difficult to use. It seems like Killian is simply re-inventing the wheel and going nowhere but downhill.
