  • It must be named yike after what people say when they try to stop quickly and the contraption cunningly converts itself into a cyclist slingshot.
  • Like a pivot off a rat trap!

    I think the Daily Mail ran an article on it saying it was a "real alternative to the bicycle"

    ..at £3k I doubt it. :? Plus it isnt road legal in the UK iirc
  • not even if i was quadrispazzed on a lifeglug :shock:

    I like how the first woman to see it can't help sniggering :)

    We mock these things now, but at some point someone will get it right and produce a cheap, efficient, lightweight transport device for the masses. And yes, I know the bicycle fits, but you know what I mean.
  • Isn't it powered by non humkan means? How could that be anything like "real alternative to the bicycle". Daily Mail idiots :roll:
    Unlessw i've missed something, in which case i'm the idiot, well i'm an idiot anyway but we all knew that 8)

    So, James Martin has his moment in the Daily Mail and now this guy reviews this, this, this thing on the streets of London yet states in big letters that it isn't legal.

    Back in a minute, I'm just popping out to make an arrest...
  • It only goes for 20 mins.

    I never go after 20 mins - Cycling that is :oops: takes me that long to get the blood running :wink:

    A few untruths, drivers don't tend to be that happy or wistful.
    I like the way you get tantalising glimpses of the thing swooping past.

    Gimme a sinclair C5 anyday, they were the future a long time ago... :D:D
