YouTuber creates a bicycle with two half wheels

Sort of sums up everything that's pointless about cyberspace, dunnit?

Cool contraption, though, I'd like to see him riding on sandy terrain)))

Hey, you know if we put those two halves together, we could do with one sprocket, a shorter frame and chain. Why hasn't anybody thought of that? Oh, nevermind.

Maybe this concept comes in handy for a mars rover. Have four split wheels to drive over really rough terrain.

Oh, come on guys, that was entertaining. And I admire the ingenuity of thinking that out and executing it. Think of the strongest glue search and post-it notes and where that ended up. Wacky ideas can lead on to serious application sometimes.

I wonder how many people watching this don't realize he didn't solve his problem at all. He blew out his front tire, and then set about spending all of his time and energy working on re engineering the back tire.

He also chopped up two tires to make the rear half-tires, and still had to buy a new front tire in the end.

So, what he did was bought a new front tire in the end, but then cut up two tires to make the rear, re-engineered the frame, and spent a lot of time and energy that had nothing to do with preventing that front tire from blowing out again, which it will if he keeps driving over curbs like he was doing at the beginning of the clip.

How is that travesty even supposed to work? Judging by the image, except for the front tire, there would seemingly only be one half wheel in contact with the pavement while the other half isn't.

I mean it is...interesting (I guess) but I fail to see the 'wow' factor in this.

He's a "Youtuber" so entertainment is what he does.    It is pretty cool.   Not anything that will be better than a full wheel but still kind of cool.
