More than just a bike, the Hammacher Schlemmer Velocipede is marketed as the first human powered vehicle with a carbon fiber chasis. At $14,000, you're paying for it, but it's a pretty cool looking ride.

If the picture isn't enough to convince you to buy one, check HS's write-up, which explains, "This is the first human powered vehicle (HPV) to have a carbon fiber monocoque chassis, the same material found in the fastest high-performance Formula 1 automobiles, making it the worlds most advanced three-wheeled velomobile."

See, ti's safe.

The Velocipede was designed by Michael Goretzky, who wanted to make something awesome, as you can tell by his end result. Stats for Hammacher Schlemmer Velocipede Trending: Older & Average
