    I want this bike: Keirin PAS

    OK, not really, although it would be kinda neato!

    "As a result, it is possible for a person of ordinary physical strength and no special training to ride at the speeds necessary to pace a world-class bicycle (Keirin) race."

    No, the piston rods are missing the NJS stamp. The crankshaft is however, Campy C-Record.

    I think the hubs were developed for the US military (I kid you not) by WaveCrest.

    You can buy 'em here.

    They are kind of nuts and I've seen someone ride 'em around.

    they sure were....I remember talking to my sargeant major about bikes and the military and he brought that up like a year ago.....I told him if I could get into that program I'd re-enlist. Of course.....I would never actually re-enlist, I just wanted to see him get his hopes up and actually do some work in tht big office of his
    I've been here since 2004? I've never felt this old before.

    "The 36 volt NiMh batteries charge fully in 4-6 hours, and since they are mounted inside the front hub, the balance and handling of the bike is unaffected. " Yeah, I always longed for the handling of a bike that has a 6 pound front wheel... Nimble cornering guaranteed.

    i don't see the military advantage to this bike. i mean...sure, i see how bikes could be useful in warfare in some (more urban) settings...i was actually just thinking moments before reading this about a book a friend has about bicycles in wartime.

    anyhow, i don't see how this specific bike has much advantage over the fixies any of us ride. silent, can go 30 miles a day at 20 mph, the article said. a good fixie will be almost silent. 20 mph? that's a decent clip, but hardly something that would be taxing for 30 miles, at least not to properly trained riders, like you'd expect soldiers to be, at least if they were in that unit. anyway, point being, you could take a converted road frame and jump on it and go just the same, without having to have a 6 pound front wheel, or a lameass motor or research and development.

    hm. ****. one thing just occurred to me...they're talking 30 miles a day, 20 mph--with soldier gear. but for civilian use, that's lame for sure. for military use, i guess i'd like to know more, like see one of those.

    I guess the point is it can do 20mph with a lazy rider. If you add in some pedaling, it goes up to 30+. Still no use at all for the U.S. Army, except that somebody needed a contract to develop it. BTW, regenerative braking is clever.

    JJR has an electric-assist bicycle. He calls it "The Perfection of Human Transportation."

    He's a published author.

    Regenerative braking has been around a LONG time. I was working on Electric cars over a decade ago, and they all had regenerative braking. It wasn't a new idea then.
