    Looks like the pivot for steering is behind the seat. That thing would steer like a forklift.

    small electric assist motor, maybe a solar charger, and some slicks. Would make an awesome head turning commuter.

    Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!

    where's pcad's fredometer when you need it?
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    It would be less efficient than a mountain bike, be able to go less places than a mountain bike, but I would probably like to test ride one.

    I think after a ride or two the novelty would wear off, and the used market would have a glut of the things... If they can sell enough of them new to make that happen.

    it'd be cool if it wasn't pedal powered.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.
