Looks like the pivot for steering is behind the seat. That thing would steer like a forklift.

small electric assist motor, maybe a solar charger, and some slicks. Would make an awesome head turning commuter.

It would be less efficient than a mountain bike, be able to go less places than a mountain bike, but I would probably like to test ride one.

I think after a ride or two the novelty would wear off, and the used market would have a glut of the things... If they can sell enough of them new to make that happen.
