    The Copenhagen Wheel?

    Anybody know if this is making any progress toward commercialization?

    When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.

    Here's a brief article about it from the Portlandia news.
    Bike repair was so simple when we were all so ignorant we didn't know we couldn't do it. -- FBinNY

    when I look at the superpedestrian site, they are still taking pre-orders -- for $800. I don't think I would hand over money to someone that has been hyping something like this until they started shipping.

    What concerns me is they are sodering the batteries to the wheel! I wonder how long that soder will hold the battery considering the punishment the rear wheel takes on a daily basis.

    Not sure what makes you think they are soldering the battery to the wheel. The battery pack is encased in a large hub on the wheel.

    I agree! I'm still dreaming of a viable pedal-assist option for my very hilly, 36 mile roundtrip (occasional) commute. I hesitate to plunk down 2 or 3X more for a BionX kit, and I can only guess that the CW would have less power and range, given its smaller package.
