The velomobile: I want one!

Now here’s a really cool bicycle. It’s got three wheels, solar panels and shelter from the elements. It’s fairly pricey at $5,495 but you don’t have to pay for insurance, petrol or rego so overall it’s pretty cheap. The only thing missing, in my view, is space for two children.

More about this on Grist.

    1. It looks knock-kneed from the front

      I think they’ve gone with the knock-wheeled look to stop it from tipping on corners. Bikes with three wheels are not as stable on corners.

    1. It is very cool. This is just the first model so maybe in future he’ll bring out one with space for passengers: small children and aunts 😉

  2. Oh yeah. I only had to se the picture to now what the caption would be. 😉 Such things are probably the coming vogue. Likely that they will improve and be less expensive. Imagine 😀
