[Cyclelicious] New comment on RevoPower gasoline bicycle wheel.

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "RevoPower gasoline bicycle wheel":

It's vaporware. They've been touting this since 2003. It was supposed to be launched this year at $400 and now it's been pushed back to 2008 and $600. Forget about it. Meanwhile, it has so many problems that it'll never make it in the market. It adds at least 12 pounds of unsprung weight to the front wheel. So much for your suspension fork. They don't have a disk brake version, so disk brake owners are SOL and you have to buy proprietary replacement rims from them when your rim brakes wear through it. In some states like New York, it's completely illegal because it's not insured and registered. If the cops feel like it, they can confiscate your bike and your $600 motor. But of course Revopower won't tell you that on their website.
