arjan_peter November 22, 2019 06:01 AM insane pricing, ugly design ? Jack Woodburn November 22, 2019 10:47 AM That's gotta be a very hot ride in the summertime. And it's just a matter of time until these velomobiles become more regulated and "licensed" given their assisted speeds. Douglas Rogers November 22, 2019 10:49 AM I really think the lean-to turn trike is a lot better platform, as it is much harder to blow over. It doesn't say if this has regenerative braking and proportional assist. These would be "must haves" at the advertised price. Altairtech November 22, 2019 11:19 AM Exactly what's needed so it fails commercially. Bruce Anderson November 22, 2019 12:22 PM Three points define a plane, so a tadpole design may have been a better choice. Some thought regarding aerodynamics would have been nice. FabianLamaestra November 22, 2019 02:35 PM Heck no for 20k, geez... nick101 November 22, 2019 03:28 PM Good idea, comical price. DryCycle Ltd November 22, 2019 04:57 PM Hi Guys, I'm Andy from DryCycle ltd. Thanks for reading about us, and thanks to Ben and New Atlas for writing an article about our new vehicle. I'll try to quickly address some of the comments you've made, also the FAQ section on our website www.DryCycle.co.uk is very comprehensive. So we have 4 wheels instead of 3 as it is inherently more stable, which is important in a taller vehicle like ours. We don't have regenerative braking as it's a Shimano E8000 mid motor so has a freewheeling and cant be used to charge the battery under braking, but it does have proportional assistance and boost modes for the motor. You can vent the canopy easily in summer time, use the fans, or just remove the canopy altogether with quick release quarter turn fixings. It would take a very strong wind to blow a DryCycle over, so that really needn't be a concern, its heavy at 120kg, which the motor overcomes quite nicely. At 15mph aerodynamics are not much of an influence but of course we did shape the vehicle as aerodynamically as reasonably possible. We were far more concerned with comfort, reliability, ease of maintenance (it can be tilted onto it back) and safety. We've had it crash tested by Millbrook Testing Grounds here in the UK and it did really well, here's a video https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=3LBRUKcUcwU Thanks for your interest :) Gyula Bognar November 22, 2019 05:20 PM For that much money, one can buy a very good used car. Stupid idea, unless the price is only slightly higher than a regular bicycle. U$1,500.00 would be acceptable. Kevin Ritchey November 22, 2019 10:50 PM Price is insane as are the (lack of) aerodynamics. Cow tipping making a return?
