In fact an electric assist velomobile. I just got wind of these beauties ....but they are expensive. I wish they could mass produce them so the price could fall. Im envisioning little pods of people all heading to work..a lot more effecient than SUV's

Have you been drinking the kool-aid again?

Any bike is more efficient than an SUV, but most people I know are too lazy and are full of too many excuses!

Some of the cycling purists will dis' the idea, but I envision the same type of future. I see this as a practical option for short commutes. I also wish that the price would come down.

I ride an electric recumbent, but there's no shell. Guess it's a velomobile skeleton.

You'll find a lot more interest in and respect for this topic on the electric bicycles board. I go there often.
