Treadmill Bike — 'Take your favorite gym workout outside'

You knew it would come to this.

I, for one, am impressed.

How did they figure out how to mount a working treadmill on a bicycle such that walking on the treadmill lets you ride the bike?

Amazing.

I watched the demo at the top of the page over and over again: yes, the guy is just walking along on the treadmill and yet the bike is rolling along just like a regular bike.

Watch the video on the site by clicking on the words "sweet jumps" — pretty funny.

Oh, man, would I love one of these.

Uh, why not just walk or jog?

Next will be a rowing machine, right?

Going downhill on a bike, the pedals do not force you to pump at their speed (well, not on bikes with gearing anyway) or at worst you can take your foot off the pedals: I see a cable presumably for the brakes, but is their a clutch mechanism?
