    Not a bad design, but you'd be leaning over a lot, especially uncomfortable if you were on it for a long time.

    Don't know if there is a market for it, either. One thing that would be nice would be some place to store stuff you might happen to buy - but honestly, where would you park the thing? Not exactly something you'd leave on the sidewalk and it would be a bit cumbersome in a store....

    Oh, and could you get two people on that?

    There's a market for quad bikes... this like a hippy version...
    Heh. Parking could be an issue, but then, I'm sure there are plenty of rich kids who'd want one 'just because'. Not mass-marketable, but profitable, probably.

    2 people... hmm... one sitting, another standing on the rear axle (if you can call it that), like the bloke in the Segway blurb. Could be fun. Once I'm rich and flippant :)

    Appears to be a more of an ATV type of vehicle. And will probably go faster than the Segway.

    i love this product! being a mechE it reminds me of my mini-baja race days in undergrad. its just like a quad but without gas, brilliant. I think there is a market for a fun vehicle that someone could enjoy a saturday afternoon on. This product wouldnt be for your daily commute. Maybe some eggs, bread, and milk... but i think they def. want a recreation vehicle.

    I'll take one!

    cheers
