The wheel giving cyclists an extra push

Anything that makes pedalling uphill easier is a good thing as far as I'm concerned, and I want one of these Copenhagen Wheels, but I'm pretty sure that when it goes on sale I'd have to take out a second mortgage to be able to afford it.

If I never get that infirm or lazy I'll just revert to the monster truck. If you're going as far as powers propulsion then why get wet in the rain?

i love going up hill the real way,the mans way
Women can ride uphill too.
Just not this one ... :smile:
 
i've gone for the 1000cc petrol assistance for the journeys where I'm too feeble or lazy to pedal.
Sounds very nice, I have a 1250 version although 1000cc versions are usually the fastest. I do use an old bicycle to ride to work when ever I can to save on fuel and maintenance costs.

It was nice being able to buy British on merit, rather than nostalgia. Wanted a smaller bike really, but forced into a bigger machine as I wanted factory panniers. Very civilised for pootling despite being ludicrously fast if you open it up. No idea what happens if you turn the throttle more than a quarter turn! It's a triumph sprint 1050

It tends to go quite quickly.
 
Mines a Suzuki Bandit GT. Reasonably quick and much faster than most cars. Having said that, my Scott CR1 road bicycle was faster than a lot of cars today. Traffic was :banghead: in one part. Wasnt even rush hour either.
With or without an engine, :bicycle:s are simply better.
