    After consideration, I can say that is not the single stupidest thing I have ever seen.

    Really stupid though.

    I sure hope this inventor isn't hoping to give up his day job.

    I hope the inventor has liability insurance. Because that design seems destined to break toes in ways other pedals will not.

    Exactly what I was thinking. Aren't we vulnerable enough out there?

    Or at the very least, remove lots of skin. Personally, I like to keep most of my blood on the inside, but that's just me.

    I'm hoping they start making these toe pedals for motorcycles.

    I've often thought how nice it would be to tear around town on my MC in my bare feet.

    Buying parts to hang on your bike is always easier than getting fit.
