My square-wheel bike, on permanent display at Macalester College. This construction, believe it or not, earned me an entry in Ripley's Believe It or Not ® (); beats standing in a block of ice for three days or growing three-foot long fingernails. This version is our second such vehicle, built in 2004. The first, from 1995, was a little less refined and the ride on the catenary road less smooth. The new version rides very very smoothly.
