  1. Turkey?

  2. I’d rather buy a Segway thank you.. least then I know I’m getting something.. but seriously $1000 tire can find electric bikes for less

    Put 2 of them on.

  4. Innovative design

  5. "space is an issue" Bruh if you have space for a bike, you should have enough space for a moped (which can go up to 50km/h)

    these power wheels are cool. comparing the various brands now, and definitely considering one for my rusty 1954 beach cruiser. thanks for the review.

  7. Space is the issue but you still have a normal sized bike? What’s the difference lmfao

    А какой у него накат?

  9. Costs way too much. A simpler front tire motor and controller would cost about half as much and not have the problems this contraption has.

  10. Hi Mike can Kick Starter get intoutch with me for some idea s I came up with?

  11. Those ridiculous rubber straps.
    I could go on and on how crappy this thing is all over the place

  12. I’d like to know about the energy-recuperation braking. How is it efficient? can you adjust the force of the regenerative braking, for example when you are going down a very strong slope, for not to go too fast, while recharging the battery?

  13. Not trying to troll for the sake of trolling, but this is a mega whiny review.

    Not much useful info, here. We get price and speed but nothing regarding range or cost of replacement parts (what happens when those rubber drive rollers wear out?) or any real comparison to other alternatives. C’mon, man, you can do better….

  14. I’m concerned about the rubber bits coming off the wheel. What does a replacement wheel cost?

  15. who dudes in geans?

  16. I thought the whole point of this thing was to go up hills with ease

  17. ridiculously priced tech that solves little. rich people toys

  18. When it’s half that price I’ll get it

  19. How much cost of this products? ?? In bangladesh

  20. Do you have to take the bike stand with you, what’s wrong with leaning it up against the fence?

  21. San Francisco has no room for your bike???

  22. waaaaaayyyyyy over priced

  23. When i first saw this shit i thought someone created the it from south park lmaooo

  24. If I het one the bike is equipped with an alarm system that is ear deffining

  25. Also they are gorgeous looking…………………………

  26. nobody with a multi-thousand dollar bike would put that on their human-powered machine.

  27. I have 20" folding bike, I wish they make ’em in 20" wheel. Geoorbital wheel looks solid!

  28. Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy ??????? Why complicate life ? Just bought a normal electric wheel for bicycle…. I don’t understand why some companie are trying to "reinvent the wheel" with so complicated device….

  29. 60 seconds to replace wheel = wheel will be stolen, so park these bikes inside only!

    Extra mass on the front wheel means poorer handling compared to a regular rear hub motor. Components that will wear out quickly (vs tends of thousands of km on regular hub motors).

    I don’t get it.

  30. $1000 for the wheel? you can get a fully electric premade bike for like $3500.

  31. 1:48 =>

  32. No . I have a $ 1200.00 electric bike that has much better performance. And is a really nice bike. Not just a front wheel.

  33. Nice review fatty
