Yardbike

Just back from LV and the most interesting bike at the show (with the possible exception of the $10,000 Stromer) was the Yardbike, a US made, 8Kw full suspension BMX bike with a 90-100 amp controller and 33s, 1p (108V) battery. No PAS since no pedals and unabashedly for those individuals with a yard big enough to ride around for it's battery life of 20 minutes.

It made the WTF! list:

Yard Bike - INTERBIKE - 2017 WTF Gallery - Mountain Biking Pictures - Vital MTB

Oh the trouble I could have gotten into on that as a pre-teen...

I'm considering getting in line in order to ride it in the desert; should be a blast with an extra battery or two.

350, the brothers that developed the concept are Canadian, but I liked them anyway.

Oh, I like the concept of the Yardbike, but I was just saying it's nowhere close to the ZERO Electric motorbike... JMO.

I'm just saying why buy a Yardbike when you can buy a Zero and get more of everything?

I guess I'll answer my own question. If I want to fly through the air in my back yard on a bike, with little effort on my part, then the Yardbike is the answer.

350 & Ray --- agree with both of you; it's different and not for everyone; probably would be fun for me though.

I never would have been off of it at that age, super cool.
