Man Claims He Invented the Safest Bike Ever

The website of the Law Offices of Williams Kherkher explains that the aftermath of accidents can be overwhelming. Many people are aware of this and take appropriate precautions to keep themselves safe. For those that love biking just as much as they love staying safe, British inventor Crispin Sinclair claims he has invented the safest bike in the world.

His invention is called the Babel Bike, which according to CNET Magazine is getting its financial start as an Indiegogo campaign. Aesthetically, the Babel Bike stays true to a traditional bike by having two wheels, but veers away from the typical model from there.

The bike comes with a safety cage, seatbelt, front and rear lights, rear-view mirrors, turn signals, a horn, brake lights, and hazard lights. Sinclair says the safety cage and seatbelt minimize damage to the biker because when getting hit the biker is pushed instead of crushed.

The monetary goal for the campaign is about $74,000. Both electric and non-electric versions of the bike can be bought. The electric bike currently can be purchased for a $4,430 pledge to the campaign and runs for 50-80 miles and the non-electric bike comes in a little less at $2,950.

People who have commented about the product online have critiqued it by saying the price is way too high, and that you can get a quality bicycle for just $100. Other critiques have focused in on the design of the Babel Bike itself. Because it is seated low, they fear the rider may become too relaxed and not have the level of alertness required for a biker on the road.

Only time will tell if Sinclair or his critiques will have the last word. Maybe the Babel Bike really is the biggest road safety innovation since the seat belt, or maybe it is just another tech fad.
