Yikes- A new bike???

No not N+1 for me but if I was taken back when I saw this.

Has to be on a link but well worth looking at for the future of Commuter cycles.

Scroll down to the video and you can see why it appeals.

Would that even be street legal in Europe? It wouldn't be street legal in most of the states in the US. Just another very expensive toy that may never really sell, and just the type of thing that engadget likes to focus on.

It would be legal but not on the sidewalk. Might need a Flag on it like recumbents but it would come under the special regs for electric cycles we have over here. You would have to be over 16? (I think) but no licence necessary.

And just think of the Train commuters into London. No problem in carrying it on the train and it has a fair range on a battery charge.

I don't know. 5K seems a bit high for something with a range of 9Kms. Iím not even warmed up all the way at that distance.
