    It's being reported that bike of the future will never be stolen, has puncture-proof tyres and will play music as you ride. that will be so great.

    I'm not terribly impressed with a mockup.

    That's a lot of technology.

    When they integrate a decent coffee maker, I'm putting in an order.

    I'd like to see their solar power number claims. Any panel that would reasonably fit on a bike would be piddle (not pedal) power at best. Even a 100W solar panel is about 2' x 4' (and that's 100W PEAK--at optimum angle, tough to do on a bicycle).

    Personally, I kind of like the clean, elegant lines of the bike, though. No more throwing broom sticks through the spokes to flip your neighborhood rivals.

    I'd buy that. Apart from the listen to music it sounds nice.
