$18,000 ‘Flushable Jacuzzi’ Bike, Made in USA

You pedal immersed in warm water. Jets spray your legs and your rear end as you ride. A digital display counts off the miles. When you’re done, the unit flushes, discarding your sweaty workout water down the drain.

An invention that apparently flew in from outer space (as per the video), the Fit Bike, says the company, “combines the effects of biking, water resistance, & jets to improve results 10 times faster than an average bike.”

$18, 770. Made in Florida. Seriously, watch this video. Or see it in person if you’re heading to Interbike, where the Fit Wet will be on display at the Health + Fitness Business Expo next door to the main hall with the real bikes inside. —Stephen Regenold
