Re-inventing the Wheel

Or rather, the crank that turns the wheel.

The Geek had removed the crank from this garbage-eve special to see if it would fit her 'bent. It didn't so when she re-installed it, she didn't initially notice that the pedals were parallel to each other rather than on opposite sides of the crank.

The Geek did not need much encouragement to try it out the new arrangement.
You may want to shut off the sound when you view the video; there are some annoying thumping noises.

I wonder if this is the type of accidental discovery that results in an "ah-hah" moment for famous inventors.
