A Bicyle you have to unlearn to learn how to ride

Learning to ride a bike is a milestone in the life of any person, and as they use to say... it's something one never forgets. However, not forgetting something can also work against you, like the bicycle I show you today proves.

Learning to ride a bike is something that you can't learn by reading about it. You need to actually (try to) ride it, for as long as it takes till your brain can piece together all the sensory inputs and correct motor outputs that allow us to do so. But it's something that can easily turn.

This bike looks like any regular bike, but its handle works in an inverted way. If you turn left the wheel turns right and vice-versa. And the most amazing thing is, even though you can know about it right from the start, you won't be able to ride - not unless you first unlearn how to ride a regular bike, and train your brain to ride in this one.

... The funny thing is, once you do so, going back to a regular bike will make have to "learn it" again (though you'll be able to do it in a much faster way. :)
