Dragon Bike from Burning Man

Not sure if the pix will load, but here's hoping...

As seen at Burning Man, a bicycle built for four.
Now part of the Burning Man display at the Renwick in Washington, DC.

This bike is set up for four riders.
Each rider has his own 18-speed setup with triple front chainrings and 6-sprocket rear freewheel, and simple gear change levers for the derailleurs.
The final drive hubs are fixed and the two riders on the right drive the right wheel while he two riders on the left drive the left wheel, which MAY take care of the steering issue. Or it may be a rudder control to pivot the rear wheel....

Either way, pretty nifty.

I was hoping! The fire extinguisher made me think it has to do *something*, you know?
Such a cool build! The articulation in the head is incredible.

That's incredible! Albeit absolutely terrifying at the same time... No idea how the camera man had the balls to get so close to the thing while it was breathing fire too
