Anyone ever ride one of those "Coasting" bikes?

    I came across this today:

    And the idea sounds pretty interesting. Essentially it is automatic transmission applied to bicycles. However, before I take the plunge and buy one, I'm curious to see if any fellow MRers have tried one of these. How did you like it?

    I didn't even know the made stuff like that. It's really pretty cool, but I guess if I'd thought about it would've come to me that sooner or later they'd make a ten-speed with an automatic transmission.

    but, to answer your question, I haven't ridden one, sorry.
