    it's funny when it calls it a standard pushbike...that's the old kind where you had to push on the ground to move.

    Raleigh Aspen touring/off-road hybrid, and a Bob Yak trailer. Yak very useful for us car-free types that like to buy lots of beer.

    Actually, the British still refer to modern day, standard bicycles as "push bikes", regardless of the fact that they need to be pedaled. I don't get it either, but there are lots of things in this world I don't get.

    That's pretty excellent. If they made the bikes available in the US I think they'd find a lot of customers. There is a considerable need for something like this or the standard Christiania, but for various reasons Christiania does not make their vehicles available in the US.

    I am not sure about the "convertible" aspect of it...but at this point, any 3-wheeled kid-carrying bike is better than none for US car-free families.

    Don't kid yourself, they'd sell a total of five. There's a reason why these things are exclusive to Europe.

    Are you kidding? Get Britney Spears to be seen on one once, and you'd sell thousands. It's all in the marketing.

    Exactly, if they could get celebrities on bikes the sales would sky rocket .

    That's quite a nifty looking bike, and an excellent, well-thought-out design. I've got it bookmarked, and hope that it hits the US market in an affordable fashion. Impressive.
