This bike is would not work for me, but I found it very creative.

Maybe it works. I don't see why there is nothing attached to the front. A big water bottle at least.
It isn't worse than a Surly big dummy. IMO.
The Korean girl Jin carries a drone and a surf board up the OZ east coast. LOL.

The video above as well as a second video on this page: https://bikepacking.com/news/check-o...-concept-bike/

The conceptual drawings do have some front bags as well.

I remember seeing that thing and then looking at the weight and being like, nah. I would rather just tow a little camping trailer. The concept is neat for purely good weather just hanging out under the stars or like a festival type thing maybe but I am not sold for actual touring but I haven't ridden one only seen video and pictures.

Got a kick out of the promo video. Found it amusing. Even the presenter found himself to be amusing!
