I don't think this was ever actually produced, but looking at the designs, it's clear it should've been. The concept is simple enough: We used wind 100s of years ago to sail, now the time has come to the bike.
This invention seems to be made for people who aim to go with the wind. For the rest of us, it is clear that there are many disadvantages with this invention. The most obvious one is that side wind might just cause you to smash into the ground. Another is that if you do catch a strong strong gust of wind, you might just run out of options of how to stop your bike. I suggest you ram something!
I have to say that this one looks like a lot of fun. And potentially a lot of pain.
