Hanebrink did it first!

Don’t believe the hype, Hanebrink designed a ridiculously wide-wheeled bike long before Batman showed up with his little batpod thing. The other night Nicole suggested we go to a late showing of Batman, even though we both had work really early in the morning. Despite our sleepiness, I almost jumped up when the batman motorcycle appeared on screen. I wanted to shout “it looks like a Hanebrink bike!” The Hanebrink bike was for slow slogs over ice, snow and sand. I believe Dan Hanebrink tried (and may have succeeded) to sell some bikes to the military. Here is visual evidence that Hanebrink had the jump on batboy.
