The Backwards Brain Bike

The Backwards Brain Bike

Destin Sandlin is an engineer who getting everyone’s attention these days with his invention of a bicycle that seems “almost impossible to ride”. The amazing creation came about when welders with whom Sandlin had been working decided to make a bicycle’s headset steer backwards!

When you ride the  brain bike, turning the handlebars right makes it go left, and turning left makes it go right. Destin says it took him 8 months to learn to ride it, yet his young son learned in only two weeks, showing how children’s brains are so adept to learning.

“I learned three things from this experiment,” he says in the video. “I learned that welders are often smarter than engineers, that knowledge does not equal understanding, and I learned that truth is truth, no matter how I think about it.”
