If I get enough disposable funds this Winter, this may be my 3rd bike. I just *LUV* the idea of turning up for work when the car drivers don't!

The video makes it look so exciting. I would like to demo one in the snow if any store has one.

with that much moving and touching the ground i would imagine it would slow down quite rapidly (unless you're going downhill like the video). cool concept though.
