If you loved Penny-Farthing bicycles but didn't want to risk life and limb to ride one, then the Lunartic is the bike for you. This bike was designed by Luke Douglas, who reversed the iconic design of the Penny-Farthing by putting the small wheel in front and the big wheel in back.

Apparently reversing the wheels was the key to making the original design safer and faster. I don't know about you, but I'd give the Lunartic a shot. I like to live on the wild side. Stats for Backwards Penny-Farthing Bikes Trending: Older & Average
