    When I was a kid, there was nothing in the world that I wanted more than one of the pedal cars from Bugsy Malone.

    If only velomobiles weren’t so damned expensive…

    Very cool.

    But your use of the term ‘interdoodles’ has brought up an interesting issue: I feel that we should all agree on a standardized ‘cute & funny’ term for the Internet. I generally use ‘Intertubes’, but I’m open to change. How about it? What term should be standardize on?

    Ooooooh. Thanx James Gyre, the link has some very cool examples, my fave being the Human Car. Wouldn’t you love to ride in one?
    And “the one”, which looks supercool, is buildable; but I know from experience that the bearings needed for the wheels cost many hundreds of dollars apiece!

    Building a shelled recumbent would be fun, Craniac, but great ghu, what a time investment.
