I just saw an article about an all electric, gyro stabilized bike from a startup ( Lit Motors) in San Francisco

interesting except for the $$

I've been reading up and looking at the numerous you tube vids. loads of questions on forums in 07 I read from design students wanting ideas. there are a couple on the same vein.

from what I understand they use two gyros to hold them upright and some have even speculated that the gyros themselves could be a source of battery recharging which is interesting.

of course I was looking at it from a c1 point of view and whether it would be an easy affair to mount a couple of smaller ones. I cant wait to see any crash test vids :-)
