YikeBike is right!

I'd love to ride this 15 mph, two-wheeled, electric wheelchair on a closed course or in a park, but out in traffic? I don't think so. I know that handlebars on a bike or scooter only provide the illusion of protection, but with this thing EVERY impact would be face first. I would be afraid of being flung right out of that chair the first time I hit a curb or had to stop abruptly.

But look how small it becomes! It only weighs 22 pounds, so it can truly be put in a backpack and carried away at the destination, or put in a closet.

Here's their slick ad.

See a nicely done Discovery Channel segment on the YikeBike here. More interviews with the leadership and so on.

Lurking Cyclopean Horror

WTF is that???

It looks grim and terrifying - a shadowy mass of tentacles ready to drag and grab and snag you even just a few inches away from the precious surface, your pitiful supply of air soon failing until you gulp and gasp the seawater in panic - the cold, hard pain of it in your lungs washed away by the blackness.

US Military: Peak Oil is HERE

The US military has warned that surplus oil production capacity could disappear within two years and there could be serious shortages by 2015 with a significant economic and political impact.

The energy crisis outlined in a Joint Operating Environment report from the US Joint Forces Command, comes as the price of petrol in Britain reaches record levels and the cost of crude is predicted to soon top $100 a barrel.

"By 2012, surplus oil production capacity could entirely disappear, and as early as 2015, the shortfall in output could reach nearly 10 million barrels per day," says the report, which has a foreword by a senior commander, General James N Mattis.
