Because your butt isn’t cushion enough and you’re not sure what to do with that £420 note your grandma sent you here’s Loop Wheels. Sam Pearce out of Nottingham, UK (where Robin Hood lives) came up with the idea to add suspension directly to the tires of a bike. So instead of just the springs that sit under your seat and around your front wheel you can have bouncy wheels too. Pearce started Loop Wheels as a Kickstarter project which at the time of this post was successfully funded about 16 hours ago. I always feel happy for people when their Kickstarter projects take off. They denied my projects on three separate occasions, jerks.
I like the idea but I suspect peddling my fat self around I would ride a bit low all the time, and if there’s one thing I don’t need is more stuff that rides low. This does help solve the problem of how dangerous front shocks can be, I remember one time on my sweet 10 speed where I road of a curb, bottomed out those front shocks and spent the rest of the day picking gravel out of my nose.

I know, going with just the 20 inch wheel makes you look like a goof when you’re riding around. But remember they’re in the UK, they almost touch France.
