Meet Dreamslide. No, it’s not a pigeon loft that you slip out of only to find yourself at school, naked and possible able to. But, it’s more like floating through the air than flying. The Dream slide is an almost weird and excellent alternative to a motorcycle.
The Dream slide has two significant differences from a regular bike. First, it doesn’t have a seat, and second. It has a new crank that allows you to stand up and pedal without dying after five minutes.
The stand-up part is the part that the people at Dream slide. Push and consider the machine to be a cross between cycling and skateboarding. Or rather longboarding. You pedal to gain speed, then you can cruise and lean into turns like you’re carving aboard. It looks like a lot of fun.
But the exciting part is in the push-ups. If you’ve ever ridden home without a saddle, you’ll know how difficult it is to pedal. While keeping your weight on your feet. Especially if you’re not climbing a hill, if you’ve ever tried it on a fixed-gear bike, you’ll know it’s impossible to go more than a few hundred yards.

APS (Adaptive Pedaling System):
The Dream slide crank called APS (Adaptive Pedaling System). Gets around this by having two independent cranks. At any instant, the rear crank moves up about three times as fast as the front crank.
It gives the movement a lot more like running. And as you can see, it allows you to rest all your weight on the bottom leg as the top part crosses the top of the circle. These oversized pedals also help you transfer your weight to your feet.
The Dream slide also folds up, although it has no seat or trailing tubes. All you have to do is fold the steerer tube down flat on the frame, where it snaps into place with a giant magnet.
You can buy this crazy vehicle, which costs more than a Brompton and a longboard combined. It’s less than some sports equipment, for €1,250, or $1,730 in your dollars.
Like every sport, it even has its uniform, which in this case can only be described as “preppy”: To ride the Dream slide. You must wear a polo shirt and tight flannel work pants. Wonderful!

Can I ride a bike without a seat?
“Halfbike is a new type of vehicle that awakens your natural instinct to move.”
It combines the primary drive mechanism of a classic bike. But removes the saddle and changes the rider’s position. The resulting vehicle becomes half bike, half scooter.
The standing position of the rider is essential for the Halfbike. It brings you closer to natural walking, and you control the vehicle with your whole body, not your hands. It’s a vehicle that trains your balance and reflexes in one.
Made of plywood and aluminium, the bike is foldable, compact, and light (weighing 9 kg). It is beneficial for getting around the city, including public transport. When folded, the bike fits in the trunk of a small car, under a desk at work or in an overcrowded closet.
Because of the change in rider position, learning to ride a Halfbike from scratch takes some time and practice. It relies on the rider using their whole body to steer. Most people can get the basics up and running in a straight line in less than 10-15 minutes.
Currently, the bike (is priced at around £440). Comes in three different sizes. Depending on your height and in five different colour combinations.
I like the idea of this Halfbike. It uses the same concept of pedal power but adds an element of style and enjoyment. While a motorbike might not be the best investment in price. It’s fantastic to see companies developing modes of transport. That relies on human power rather than petrol.
Standing up in class has several benefits. Most, it will increase the cardio component of your ride. Many people also complain that riding in the saddle is uncomfortable. So getting in and out of the seat gives different body parts a second to breathe.
