Written by Gary North on May 11, 2014

I realize that this sounds unbelievable. But it’s true. The media have covered it.

There really is a Jewish farmer.

He broke his pelvis in 2008. He bought a wheelchair. And he didn’t like the way it felt. It was too bumpy.

So, he thought about this. What if he could design spokes that would absorb some of the impact? Would that make things easier?

  1. How wonderful! Necessity, the mother of invention. That's the American Spirit.

  2. who cares says:

    shocks within the wheel rather than attached to the axel- big whoop, im not impressed.

  3. Sounds to me like liberal anti-Semite atheist feelings rather than not impressed.

  4. I wouldn't say that. I am Jewish and I am not impressed either. I don't see 95 PSI bicycle tires working with a flexible rim. I can see uses for this for light weight bike trailers but not bike tires themselves. Wheelchair tires can be solid. I see this working with solids. I also wonder about the MTBF for the shocks.

  5. This shows that someone with a disability can think his way out of poverty by not depending on government handouts. This is absolutely awsome.

    Looks logical to me. Haven’t tried it though.

    He sounds more like an idiot liberal to me, I'm sure he has much better idea's. I'm an M.E. and I'm impressed.
