    Ugly, but interesting concept. The video actually has the guy doing wheelies and stoppies. If they can get these electric bikes to 90 MPH, 100 miles on a charge, and to a reasonable price, I think they could have a market.

    thanks for the link. Very interesting. The more concepts we flood the market with, the more popular it becomes, in theory, the cheaper it will get.

    I dont like the look of the forkless design, but I would like to figure out how the suspension and steering is working...

    Concept

    The front end I can figure out, and I don't like it. Too much stress on the steering arm.

    The rear end really bothers me though. Pinion and pivot in such drastically different points will eventually mean the chain is gonna snap or come off.

    I think E bikes are coming, but not this one.

    Ugly but it seems to work. If Kalifornia makes us smog our bikes in 2012 that's all they will let us ride.....
