Good grief. It looks more like an electric motorbike.

It weighs 53 kg and in competition mode can reach speeds up to 50 mph (80 kph). I seriously hope that I never see one of these on our inadequate bike paths.
It would not be at all strange if history came to the conclusion that the perfection of the bicycle was the greatest achievement of the nineteenth century.

Don't go near the bay run then - I have had this misfortune of observing of of the "stealth" models 3 or 4 times on bike paths there as well as nearby streets. Unfortunately no discernable pattern to his appearance so nothing of use to report to police.

One day I saw him twice as I did a lap of the bay - I at a complete loss as to why you want to do laps of the bay when the only exercise you are getting is further strengthening of your right wrist. :roll:

Police shouldn't have too much difficulty in discerning he has more than 200w available when he is doing around 40-50 km/h uphill without pedalling.

That Stealth Bomber looks like a machine, something out of a Batman movie or something, would be pretty dangerous to drive, and yes wouldnt be able to get away with that in Australia on the Roads, im not sure why they even include bicycle pedals on that thing?

This actually appeals to me .... a trail motor bike that you could use in the bush without all the noise usually associated with them.
That said, they have no place on a shared paths though and neither do road bikes ridden at speed (eg > 30km/h).
And the reason they have pedals is you need somewhere to rest your feet :P
