I've got to tell you, I'm kind of interested. I wish these and the Footbike and Kickbike were carried by stores in New Mexico.

@Rockhead,
I got to try out something similar under the Footbike brand. The orange triangle seemed a little superflous.

@roger,
I remember these scooter-type bikes being popular with my cousins when I was a little kid visiting in Germany. I thought they were very cool, but not as easy to propel as I thought they should be. I was probably just too little.

@littlek,
Well, that's kind of the point. You don't need a seat. Or pedals, shifters, derailers, chain rings, or cassettes. You also don't have to worry about baggy pants getting hung up on the saddle horn or emeshed in the chain.

What about long downhills - would be nice to sit. And is the break on the front wheel? Wouldn't that be dangerous?

(I dunno why I am being such a noodge)

@littlek,
It does look like a single brake and on the front wheel at that. That could be a serious objection. The other brands like Footbike and Kickbike do have two brakes, and they look like they have a bit more road clearance.

Downhill, though? No. Hills go up, not down. Just like winds are always from the front. Seriously, you spend much more time going up than down, so I doubt you would miss it.

I saw a five-seat bike on youtube. They called it their Amish Limo lol.

@Irishk,
Sounds like the Conference Bike, but it looked like they were all headed in different directions.
