After a lot of noise in 2009, the Copenhagen wheel is finally coming to market. The self contained electric motor to add to the 26/27 inch wheel on your bike. Developed at MIT, and sponsored(whatever that means) by the Mayor of Copenhagen, it being manufactured in Massachusetts. They show a price of $950, but there are a bunch of motor size and other options so who knows. Rumor has it you can pre-order for $700.

This concerns me...

MOBILE APP
Get more from your Wheel by downloading the complimentary mobile app, which allows you to lock/unlock your wheel, choose amongst a menu of customizable rides, and track personal usage statistics including time, distance, calories burned, elevation climbed and more, all of which can be compared and shared with friends.
Does that distracted riders.

link and link.

This is the only one that I see as a potential problem because it might be adjusted during a ride, but the rest are for number crunching after the fact. Like reviewing data recorded on a black box for your car.

From Wiki:

Quote:
A bicycle equipped with a Copenhagen Wheel in effect becomes a pedelec, i.e. a bicycle in which the electric motor assists the rider when necessary but only when they are actively pedalling.
I see a problem.

If it's working when you're not pedalling, it's a motor vehicle.

I'm having trouble getting my head around this guy. He says he couldn't cut or force this bike lock in 5 minutes... that's good. But the next time he tried to use it the thing fell apart. But he says buy it anyway, a $125 lock, buy it anyway. WTF?

Not a spoiler, but at some points, he brakes like I did when I was a little kid, by dragging my feet and screaming.

Next time go to your LBS. People would bring Huffys into the shop immediately after buying them cuz "it don't stop" "it don't shift". We'd set it up as well as we could and take their money but nobody was really happy about it. If you catch a huffy hardtail with a straight frame you have a serviceable around towner but don't ask it to do more.

There is no smile like the I just cheated gravity twice in 3 pedal strokes smile! I rode my old hardtail today in a vain attempt the push a faster rider. I was quicker than I have been but you really have to be all there when riding without rear suspension. I came into a tight turn a little hot and turned on the base of a tree, excited by that I hammered into a log pyramid built over a fall. I popped over the top but landed my over inflated rear wheel on the top log. I landed in a nose wheelie headed for a small tree but kept my hand off the brake and turned back to the trail. Its all fun when it works out.
