Weird Bike Wednesday - Bird of Prey Bicycle

This week's weird bike is the Bird of Prey Bicycle. Because of the unique riding position, the crank is located behind the rear wheel. Among the advantages the manufacturer lists is an aerodynamic position for the rider, safety (You won't go flying over the handlebars) and comfort. I have to admit that I have never ridden one of these, but I'm just not sold on the comfort. It just doesn't look comfortable to me. If you want to Buy One, they retail for $4,800. Here's a video of the bike with its designer:
