    coming soon to a pothole strewn roadway near you...

    I saw this at Canadian tire today. I got the impression it's not totally new, but it's the first I'd heard of it. Can't find it on their website, but did find a link at staples.ca of all unexpected places.

    When I first glanced at it I thought the bike said "Lego" on the side. That would be been an insult to Lego, of course.

    The weight of 50lbs isn't surprising. Batteries - especially low tech ones that aren't in one of the more modern compositions with better power density - weigh a crapload. Heck, a lot of expensive freeride bikes weighed weighed about that much not so long ago, and I'd bet many of the kids' bikes they sell at the Tire weigh about 40 lbs.

    Worked on this bike earlier this year. 68lbs. I hooked the seat to a scale in a work stand and held the other in my hand hooked on the bar, and added the weights since both scales were 50lbs capacity. NO MOTOR! I don't even want to think about it loaded with a kid.....

    At least it drives at the cranks and not the hub.

    As long as they stay off the trails marked "no motorized vehicles" and single track I'm okay with whatever crap people want to ride.

    People in my area (Cambridge, ON) just don't seem to get it, they are on the trails with their gas powered wannabe harleys.
