Sergii Gordieiev Creates Bizarre Bicycle with Rear Wheel Cut In Half!
If you think round wheels are a necessary component when it comes to a bicycle, think again. One resourceful YouTube engineer’s recent invention demonstrates how two half wheels are “almost” as good as one full wheel.
Sergii Gordieiev, engineer and YouTube inventor, is known for his unusual inventions. Which include a chainless bike and a drill-powered ice bike. However, his latest creation is undoubtedly the most unusual.
This bizarre bicycle basically has two half rear wheels instead of a complete one, and they work in tandem to do the job of a regular one.
As weird as it sounds, this crazy bike shows that two half wheels, when used correctly, are “almost” as good as one full wheel.
Honestly, there’s no good reason to ruin a perfectly good bicycle. Except to show off your fabricating skills.
Watching his YouTube making-of video, you realize the amount of work that went into this project.
From extending the rear frame of the bicycle and using a chainring mounted to the disc brake for one of the half wheels, to cutting a wheel in half and making sure they spin in tandem to fulfill the function of a full wheel, this project required a lot of work and attention to detail.
If case you’re wondering how he managed to cut the tubes in half and still inflate the tires, he didn’t. The tires are attached with pipe and rivets, which will definitely impact ride comfort, but it was the easiest solution to his problem.
So the half-wheel bicycle is by no means perfect, but it does work. Like a dream, according to Sergii Gordieiev, and his video is proof of that.
Not only does the bike run great on flat, even surfaces, but it can even tackle curbs without issue, which looks remarkable.
As I said earlier, this bike is kind of pointless because he didn’t improve the bicycle. But, it’s cool anyway and definitely unusual.
