StreetSurfer Replaces A Bike’s Single Front Wheel With Four

By Andrew Liszewski

The StreetSurfer appears to be the latest trend in breaking your arm and even if you don’t look cool when you wipe out at least your ride will look unique. While it may appear to be just an ordinary bike the front wheel and fork on the StreetSurfer have actually been replaced with a small 4-wheeled contraption that kind of looks like a miniature version of a 727′s landing gear.

While the upgrade probably doesn’t improve the safety of the bike (the ability to turn so sharp or ‘carve’ will no doubt lead to a crash or two) the video of the StreetSurfer in action definitely looks like the riders are having fun.

At the moment the Australian born StreetSurfer doesn’t appear to be available all over the world (particularly North America) but if you happen to find one expect to pay about $960 (€699,00.)

    SO other than killing austrailian teenagers what exactly does this arrangement do? Also does anybody else notice that the song on the video is proclaiming what a pathetic little dork he is?

    What good does it do to sell your product when your only video shows the thing in the air 90% of the time when the reality is that people want to see how functions on the ground? If your gonna market the thing to xsports then at least equip it with grind pegs(haha) I would like to also see the thing seize up and throw the rider when he runs off pavement into ankle high grass. I suppose people will get it so they have something to put next to their lonely hula-hoop.

    Yeah I see problems with this, with the big front wheel missing the rider can’t be supported vertically by the centrifugal/gyroscopic force (can’t remember the real term for it) in normal bikes. crash-a-thon!
