One forward thinking inventor feels that his bicycle is all that someone needs to run to the store reports The Huffington Post.
Saul Griffith, the chronically industrious inventor and recipient of a MacArthur “Genius” award, has developed a new economical way of making the brief trips that seem to occupy so much of our lives. For trips less than 10 miles, Onya Cycles end up being faster than a car, Griffith tells Giga Om TV in the below video. Made with 20-inch BMX Wheels for stability, the bike will cost around $2,500 for just the bike and $3,800 with the battery and motor.
The “Front-end Loader” … can carry up to 200 pounds and has a top speed of 20 miles per hour (presumably without your groceries.)
