Finally, Adult Big Wheels Exist

Many years ago, when that Big Wheels became a little wheels, you probably thought you were done with those penny farthing-esque machines. While you still can be done if you so choose, you can now get an Adult Big Wheels, thanks to High Roller USA. 

These front-wheel drive beauties truly take biking back to the basics. This isn't a fixed gear, folks — there are no gears to fix. Since you're probably going to be doing some pretty dumb stuff on these, High Roller has included a front brake. However, since all your weight is on the back wheels (Big Wheels are the choppers of trikes), this brake is an invitation to do some sick drifting.
