Two German designers have built upon the velocipede concept to develop a Pedal-Free Bike, which they designed to promote urban biking by making the ride more comfortable and ergonomic.

The rider of the pedal-free bicycle hangs from a harness attached to the carbon fiber frame, and must either run or coast downhill in order to begin moving. Once the bike has built up enough momentum, the rider can then rest their legs on the back wheel and ride while steering with the handlebars.

It is amazing to note that the Bike just won a Merit Award at the International Cycle Show in Taipei, Republic of China (Taiwan).
