"No one ever said what would make the average person look really good," Schiller said, describing how the Schiller bike was designed. "Not big yellow pontoons."

Although the water bike does have its advantages there are still a few kinks to iron out. After Schiller finished his ride with no problems he switched out one of the flexible drive shafts and during a subsequent ride by another rider the tensioner between the shaft and propeller came loose, rendering it inoperable.

Also, the handlebars felt a little loose and lightweight for taller, larger riders who have a higher, more forward center of gravity.
The mishap also highlighted the fact the propellers can't operate independently of each other, meaning the rider can't disengage a failed propeller and still pedal back to land using the other propeller alone.
The water bike has a few benefits over other human powered watersports devices. It doesn't require paddles like a paddleboard, kayak or canoe. Also, unlike the kayak, a water bike rider is positioned further above the water which makes for a better view. Folded up and disassembled the waterbike fits in the trunk of a car or closet.

And the wide stance makes it stable enough for a rider to climb on even in choppy water. Just put a hand on the bike frame, a knee on the pontoon and step up.
Once Schiller was up on the bike he was able to quickly pedal over the rough water and around a pier. He made tight turns using handles that look and operate like hand brakes to turn the propellers.
He recently hauled a version of it to a Lake Tahoe beach to show it off to anyone who wanted a look. Even beached between a Jet Ski and a Zodiac the water bike managed to turn heads of passersby who lingered to see if Schiller was going to take it into the water.
Pedaling for power also makes the waterbike seem familiar to anyone who has ridden a bicycle, he said.
The Schiller version looks like a sleek exercise bike perched on an anodized, powder coated aluminum frame attached to two, black pontoons. Flexible drive shafts connect an internal chain to two small propellers that power the bike through the waves.
