The SHIFT Bicycle - Adorably Sensational !!

Adorably Sensational :: A tricycle that morphs into a bicycle — on the fly!
I just stumbled on this article on a cool invention this morning. I have been trying hard all weekend to get my cousin to learn to ride a bike...

Frustrations of getting a 19year young teenage girl to ride a bike without getting her mad at the embarassments of falling down in front of all her friends got the better of me. I went to my best pal.. the "computer" to google for good training bikes for adults... and guess what I found.. This invention is really really cool.. IF only they had it in my day.

Now I know for sure the bike MY daughter & son would have as they learns to bike around the community...

First the Segway.. and now THIS !!!. This one surely takes the cake.

Three cheers to the designers Scott Shim, Ryan Lightbody and Matt Grossman who won the grand prize in a bicycle design competition held by the Taiwanese government last month. When the bike is moving an articulating hub draws the wheels inward to mimic a single wheel and "make the aesthetics cool," said Shim in Bradford McKee's short piece on the bike that appeared in yesterday's New York Times.

So if the company that commercially launches this product goes public, or is looking pout for angel venture capitalists I'm investing.. !!
