Former UK Olympic cyclist Chris Boardman created what he envisions to be a bike of the future.
Built in solar cells overlaid on the carbon fiber frame power an electric assist motor and other electronics on the bike, including a fingerprint recognition anti-theft feature and built in cyclocomputer. Spokeless wheels reduce air drag, and puncture resistant tires are self inflating.
Boardman was known as "The Professor" for his meticulous attention to detail in training and for his technical know how. He's applied his knowledge in the bikes he helps design for Boardman Bikes.
IMPORTANT: Please post comments for this article at the new CYCLELICIOUS 2.0 version of this page.
why would the bike of the future look so different than the bikes of now? The bikes of now don't look any different than the bikes of the past. All the funky bikes that have tried to be "different" have failed. Everything goes in cycles... especially things related to cycles.
