Well I don't have a horn or a bell yet. This piece aired about a week ago on a local TV station.Link (http://www.wkyc.com/news/local/news_article.aspx?storyid=109432&catid=3)
Nice job, Brian! You must draw some crowds when you stop.

Way cool! I also liked the comment from one of the posters about it being a way to revive the economy. I have no idea why we keep letting China dominate this market. This is a true hybrid that has environmental and health benefits. We should be mass producing them here.

BTW, the morning this piece was filmed the temp was 16 degrees F ( I know we said we would convert to the metric system sometime in the 70's - we lied) light winds. I spent about 20 minutes riding around, reached 23mph (we lied again) several times and my hands and feet we cold, that was it. I'd have frozen riding a conventional bike for that length of time, at those speeds.

Cool video. Maybe this is an idea for you. Old rural mail carriers, when using horse & buggies, would set up several households along their routes. They left to go on their routes with hot " fire bricks " & would exchange these at the households, for new hot ones. Those were to keep feet & hands warm all day.
