Cyclist’s ride on ‘world’s smallest bike’ becomes Internet sensation

Finally, a bicycle that fits into a day pack … and a man who knows how to ride it! The accompanying video, which has gone viral during the past few days, shows a Russian cyclist pulling out an entire bicycle smaller than his shoe, and calmly climbing aboard and somehow pedaling it down a quiet street.

It has been billed the world’s smallest bicycle, and if anyone has proof of a smaller functioning bicycle, please share. What’s incredible is that a) the man is able to balance on so small a bike, and b) that the pedals are able to support his weight.

If he’s going to continue riding this bike in public, however, he’d better watch out. Some kid on a tricycle might happen along and run him over.
