Another Great Bicycle Idea

April 20, 2009

This is another great bicycle innovation, although you really can’t call it an innovation, because it’s based on an old technology. You know the hydraulic mechanism that pushes your car through the automatic car wash? Well, in Trondheim, Norway, they’ve applied this technology to assist cyclists with climbing steep hills. How cool is that? Check out the video.

    I love going out to ride my bicycle and feel the sun and the wind in my face. That is the perfect life.

    OK, I admit that’s really cool. However, that looks like a really pricey way to get up a hill! (even in what appears to be a not-so-urban area)

    Wow, that is a mighty fine way to climb a hill! I’ve been struggling on my morning bike rides the last few days as I have a last uphill stretch before hitting home. And boy could I do with something like this!
