Episode Summary

It’s a giant, one-wheeled beast of a bike that a rider pedals from within. Patented in 1897, it is one of many inventions created to improve on the original design of the safety bike, a design that has changed very little in the past 120 years. The Monowheel certainly looks intriguing, but the Re-Inventors need to know if it will ride. Its success or failure will come down to the 3 S's: Speed, Stability and Safety.moreless
