That will never fly...

(And, it's a horrible misuse of resources.)

MWB, you and me are gonna go in there and "re-appropriate" their prototyping equipment for the inventors here at I-Spot...

Are you in?

Why is there always an emphasis on speed and less drag instead of safety 1st and then fuel efficiency 2nd and then top speed? Isn't aerodynamics not an issue below a certain speed? Wouldn't it be cool if cities didn't allow personal vehicles? You could only get so close and then have to park your car on the outskirts in huge lots. You would take mass transit into the ports of entry and then either continue taking mass public transportation or you could rent individual transportation but that would all be like zero emission 100% green.

Was that bike electric? I've seen incredibly fast electronic bikes.

This bike is designed to create down force and run on tracks. And it's a concept bike, not in production yet. I have another picture here

I'm for green, but not legislatively.(i.e. "if cities didn't allow") Wouldn't you rather everyone want to "take mass transit" than have to "take mass transit?

The first one looks terribly uncomfortable and as Bottles said previously, if there is an accident this man looks like he might be in for a rough ride...
