The front of the Big Wheel is all bike—or all penny-farthing, to be precise—with a giant wheel that won't get stuck in small crevices. But instead of a matching wheel at the back you'll find a series of walking legs inspired by Theo Jansen's Strandbeests that can tip-toe over most obstacles.

There's a lot of working parts to maintain, and maybe wood wasn't the best choice for an off-road ride. But if the Boneshaker Big Wheel breaks down and leaves you stranded in the woods, at least you've got plenty of fuel for a fire. [Vimeo via The Awesomer]
