Inventive for sure but the inflate/deflate issue is a big question and also repairs. Where would it sit safety wise. Is it for the road, cycle path, or sidewalk? Should one wear a helmet?

How would you lock it up once you have arrived at your destination? If you have to spend the next 5+ minutes deflating it to carry inside, then how do you inflate it again to make the return journey?

Getting a puncture is bad enough with a pneumatic tyre - imagine the number/size of patches you will need to carry while using this, and having to carry a large track pump too!

Given the time to inflate and deflate it, and the relatively slow speed, surely it's quicker to walk!

The shape can be "whatever you want", you say?....
