Hello, I have invented a new and unique bicycle. It has front and rear steering and the rider sits
facing sideways.

Attached is a short description of the balance used to ride this bike.

More pictures are available at www.sidewaysbike.com

Regards Michael Killian Boston, MA, US

Attachment:

The Science of Human Balance Human balance is detected in the inner ear. There are three
semi-circular canals positioned at right angles to each other that detect balance in three axes.
These canals are separate and distinct. The three types of balance are Left to Right, Front to Back
and Rotational (Yaw). Left to Right balance is what people are most familiar with and is the primary
balance used for riding a regular bicycle or indeed flying a plane. In the case of flying a plane
there is a visual supplement to left to right balance provided by the observation of the horizon
line. Front to Back balance has very little visual input and is the primary balance used in riding a
surfboard, windsurfer and snowboard. Front to Back balance is a finer instrument than Left to Right
balance and offers a greater degree of artistic feedback. This is evidenced by the difference
between skiing and snowboarding. Skiing (Left to Right balance) is faster than Snowboarding (Front
to Back balance); however people like to snowboard because of the greater artistic expression.

A New Bicycle Introducing a new bicycle invention by myself, Michael Killian. This bicycle is ridden
sideways and is balanced by using human Front to Back balance. This bicycle uses Front and Rear
steering (impossible on bicycles using Left to Right balance).

The Future of this Invention It is difficult to predict the commercial success of any invention
(e.g. Segway Ginger invention). However, it is worthwhile and newsworthy to spread the word of a
legitimate invention. My feeling is that this new bicycle invention will appeal to people
seeking more artistic expression in a bicycle and the first commercial product will probably
be positioned for children about 12 to 14 years old with an adult version following later.

Fascinating. I very much admire inventors and a willingness to put forth ideas and risk derision and
criticism.

Instinctively, I would be afraid to ride that bike. Simply, I would fear falling on my back,
with no way to break the fall other than wrists. As a 30+ adult that is. I'm sure teens and kids
would not fear.

>bicycle is ridden sideways and is balanced by using human Front to Back balance.

Presumably riders will head turn to look forward when moving, so how does that affect which sense of
balance is used?

I doubt it is a new invention since I have seen pictures of just such a bike a while ago.

I'd hate to approach a busy intersection in an urban environment with the sideways bike, or is there
some kind of mirror set-up so you can see cars behind you (to right of bike)?

how do you intend to signal (on a road) when both hands are needed for riding?
