I read the article in the TBM magazine of November 05. They are about ?£6000 each for something that looks like a mountain bike with a electric motor. Runs on hydrogen and only emits water vapour into the air.

Apparently tested up to 50mph and the unit weighs about 102kg.

Mmm for ?£6k I can think of a few different things to do :lol:

My soon to be aquired bike weighs about 102kgs

But it puts the fear of god into you, not just pottering along.

Good idea on the enviro angle.

Looks interesting, I think it will be funny to ride a bike that doesn't make noise.
