When I was in Poland I saw many people biking. I was wondering if this product will be popular there.

Someone said that it is the stupidest invention ever. But I think it has some potential.

It will mostly be used for a novelty sport similar to Zorbing. The great thing about this is that you can easily jump off the threadmill bike compared to a traditional bike.

It looks like it could do with a reverse gear.

Zorbing.

On their map, they've got the Czech republic somewhere in the far west of Ukraine.

As far as momentum will take you... Many of the courses that I've seen have a slight downwards slope. I guess that this ball is tricky to roll going up unless you've already built up some speed.
