    i bet there is a rule against self advertising...

    but to the bike. I can see the point by getting a boost over rough stuff, but i bet its crazy to ride. Imagine the squat in the wheel when putting the power down and the wheels would be rolling all over the place. like riding on jelly i imagine.

    seems to me thats its trying to solve a problem that doesnt exist?

    also, i havent managed to grab the slightest understanding of how the thing works as it seems to have just had a load of technical and business-like terms thrown into a sentence with no real thought?!

    The thought If It ain't broke don't fix It springs to mind, you can't re invent the wheel.
    It's not a ornament, so ride It

    I'm not really sure which problems this bike aims to solve.
    You only need two tools: WD40 and Duck Tape.
    If it doesn't move and should, use the WD40.
    If it shouldn't move and does, use the tape.

    Right, so the point of this bike is.....????


    (Note, not the GREENEST, but the most efficient - for the energy you put in, a greater percentage used moves you forward).

    SO... Why have a heavier driveshaft and gearbox configuration... Anyone care to dumb-down the geek-talk on the webpage please..? :lol:

    advertising? not sure it is really as it aint a shop/web store etc..

    as to the bike........................................

    something for lazy commuters maybe?

    as to the technology. I will have a read tomorrow.

    Smells like bollox to me.

    The website has absolutely no other information on it either(that i could find).

    I've read it twice and it barely makes sense...lost in translation maybe. Or bollox.

    Yea, agreed website says a load of nothing
    We won't be seeing these being used in the RedBull Rampage that's for sure..

    I think since English is not the posters first language maybe something is lost in translation but I couldn't understand a blind word and the pics dont help either.

    Looks to me they have move the bearings to the rim (think it looks like 4 points on the rim.) Doubled the rim up and added a trident forked cage to hold the wheel together.

    OH! and the quill stem!!!!


    Hope its not my bank that invested in this.

    the wheel suspension is very much the same idea as the Tweel


    but much more limited.

    running the inner rim on three "rollers" (that's what it looks like) seems open to so many problems and increased friction.

    and the drive system Well i have no idea how that is meant to work (well i have an idea but the pictures are a bit limited) but could be a bit clever but the wording causes confusion and I actually think there is meant to be two separate ideas and patents going on here :shock:

    still not really MTB but more cycle.
