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.
More about this bike at the Daily Mail. Via Fast Company and Pedalr. I would've sent this to James, but he's having some Internet access problems in China.
