    Not a bike if someone has to stand there holding it up.
    Just a BS video anyway, about 99% guff suggesting that the HUGE amount of resources put into an unproductive endeavour could be good for SAVING the precious resources. This is not the technology we need. >_>

    Das Bike hätte mich eigentlich interessiert, aber der Satz mit den 14% hat mich dazu bewegt nicht weiter zu schauen.Wenn Ihr es da schon nicht genau nehmt mit den Daten, dann ist der Rest vermutlich ebenso unwahr. Over and out.

  • Jeff Mullinix

    Well that is a good trike. The only thing about it is that how much it will cost the public . Then there is the broblem of ventilation . Who would want to go to work sweaty in a 600 dollar suit .

  • zencat999

    only as fast as the cyclist. its not for everyone. and whats the price??? thats another prob. its out of the price range of the average cyclist. another strike against it. impractical.

  • Martin R

    👍 sehr schöner Beitrag. Ich finde es faszinierend mit solchen Geschwindigkeiten zu fahren, als Fahrradfahrer . Es gibt ja schon einige Velomobile auf dem Markt leider sind sie relativ teuer.

    I can only assume that the 600 dislikes are from fossil-fuel addicts and bicycle-haters. And hatred of bicycles is particularly associated with anglophone countries: Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada and the UK etc.

    hate to disappoint all the 1M viewers but this isn't the faster bicycle… the fastest one clocked 180+ MPH on the salt flat of Bonneville. look it up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CoUmgMhn2iY

    The Honda NC750X adventure motorcycle gets about 70 MPG's… All they have to do is make a fully enclosed, aerodynamic, lightweight(not much heavier than the motorcycle) 3 wheeled version and it could be used year round in 4 season weather…Just add some knobby dirt bike tires in winter for snow. It could have adjustable suspension and be made for street or to handle rough gravel & dirt country roads. Make an optional small, tow behind storage trailer for it for long road trips and it could take 2 people cross country for cheap…Sell it cheaper than a car but a bit more than a motorcycle and I'd buy one for my everyday commuter car.

    They keep talking about that bad CO2 that humans also emit when we exhale…So if I'm pedaling hard, getting a cardio workout,then I'm gonna breath harder and exhale more of that "bad CO2" they keep talking about..

    Bei 4:39 sieht man, dass man jede Kantsteinhöhe unbedingt meiden sollte, auch Bordsteinabsenkungen. Da muss nachgelegt werden.

    Und wenn ich, auf dem Weg zur Arbeit, an einer Ampel halten muss, kommt mein Team mit dem Mannschaftsbus und sorgt dafür, daß die Kiste nicht umkippt? Sehr effizient ^^

  • Bruce Wayne

    This is not true, the fastest bikes are those TT bikes pros use in time trials. If this is faster then the pros would have used them in their races………….. Says the average cyclist who knows nothing about physics. (literally there was a guy who was arguing with me that the road bikes are the fastest bikes possible when I was trying to tell him that this kind of bikes exists.)

  • Robert Xavier

    Absurd. Impractical. Rolling Coffin. Suicide Torpedo. Zero Emissions Commuter to Non-Responsive Corpse in 3.6 seconds.
    Why not invest all that time, effort & funding into a practical motorized personal vehicle?
    ie.
    #1. Affordable to Purchase, Maintain & Repair.
    #2. Comfortable Sitting Position
    #3. Higher Visibility & Ground Clearance
    #4. 1 hp Compressed Air engine
    to keep up with traffic flow
    reduce weight, compared to electrical
    & cleanest for the environment.

  • Andrew Hansen

    If we are collectively really concerned with CO2 emissions, like I am, your approach isn't the answer. The answer to our CO2 issues is the reduction of human population. Put your money into a male contraceptives and/or give people tax incentives for having no children, or at least less children.

  • Neytiri te Tskaha Mo'at'ite

    You don't even have a damn name for that kind of bike, to search it all over the net !!! LOL And u want to implement it as a viable eco-trasport. Cizes !

  • Bob Outélama

    I really can't understand that automobile transportation isn't using monocoque. It would be cheap, efficient and light.

  • Draconicwizard

    I love the whole concept, but it would've been easier to digest without having to focus so often from reading to simply listening. Either would be ok,. but for a clear narrative to be delivered, constantly switching, is just distracting…

  • Let it Rest

    That whole global warming / climate change thing is total and complete BULLSHIT. The weather is being manipulated by the use of numerous HAARP stations, that heat targeted areas of the ionosphere. That causes the direction of jet streams to be altered.

  • WE ARE ONE BRAIN

    Put it on an ultralight quadcoppter with solar panels and a lithium ion Akkupack electrical supported and we’ll all fly.Strike!

  • Fly Beep

    I've ridden a velomobile for two years (a Belgian design, WAW velomobile, not the fastest but pretty fast). The guy saying you could do 50 to 60kph on his velotilt is seriously exaggerating. Those kind of speeds are only possible in short bursts, on flat and very clean terrain with a well trained rider. 40 to 45 kph sustained (on flat terrain going straight) is more realistic.

  • Fly Beep

    As someone who has ridden an enclosed recumbent for two years (using a model WAW 4th generation) there are some distinctive disadvantages: it's large and a bit cumbersome. It needs significant space to be stored. When it breaks down on route and you can't fix it on the road you can't just push it on so you need help to transport it. It can't be easily transported, it's a bit like a motorcycle, you pretty much need a trailer or a decent size pickup. It's very bad on uphills, it's a heavy bike and you can't put force downwards on the pedals like on a normal bike, uphills require lots of effort. You can't really fully enclose yourself and protect yourself 100% from the elements, your visor will fog so you'll always have to have air flow inside the cockpit and even than it will still fog up easily. Visibility for you and to others is an issue, you're not as visible (even with a flag on your velomobile) to others and you're also less aware of your surroundings especially when enclosed in the cockpit. A velomobile is very susceptable to bad roads, much more than a normal bike. You'll feel any bump or any imperfection on the road. It's loud and noisy inside, remember it's an enclosed shell, all vibrations and noises are amplified within the shell.
    That being said, there's nothing faster than a velomobile but you need good clean straight bicycle roads. You can ride against a strong wind and you won't really feel it. It's a comfortable ride but as soon as you ride on bad roads you'll feel as if you're in a shaker.

    Is it just Me, or does there seem to be a Distinct LACK of "Multicultural Diversity" in this Effort??

    As with most Innovations, 3rd World Savages need NOT Apply…

  • Bob Americana

    also- how is it zero emissions if the Tv screen uses electricity ? do power stations not emit carbon ?

  • Jaroslav Záruba

    one day this CO2-bad b/s will fall on its head… and we all will feel stupid watching videos full of neverending CO2 fearmongering
    CO2 makes the world greener, change my mind

  • World's Best Pedal

    https://youtu.be/h5-Ew9LJXV4
    .Compare to any oscillating pedals in the world, this invention is the best because…

    – Installation is in bottom bracket of conventional bike frame.

    – Very easy to assemble (only 40 minutes…)

    – World's simplest oscillating pedal (fewer parts compare to any oscillating pedals)

    – 30 % more efficient than conventional bicycle crank ..

    – it is the most affordable.
    – Most lightweight and compact.
    – Can be incorporated with derraileur gearing system.

  • The Toerist

    Stom, je zweet je kapot, je ziet niks van de omgeving, en je kan niet alleen in en uitstappen, sta je aan het verkeerslicht stil dan vak je om! Als je moet afslaan hoe kijk je achter je? En dan denken dat is vooruitgang??? De toekomst??? Ik denk om sponsors en geld want dat ding word noooooit gekeurd voor de straat 🤔

  • World's Best Pedal

    Hi, I have an invention to offer…It is a gearing system that instantly shift to extreme speed and extreme torque..it it the
    UNIQUE BIKE GEAR SYSTEM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aACI47bIvvk
    UNIQUE BIKE GEAR SYSTEM ADVANTAGES …https://youtu.be/cYt-d4RA52g

    For the latest design of the UNIQUE BIKE GEAR SYSTEM (very confidential design) all parts are available on bike stores. It is do it yourself (DIY) installation wherein all the parts can be installed to common bike frame within 1 hour or less. There's no need to modify the bike frame.

    We can make a business : " Installation Of The Invention To Common Bike "
    The total cost of parts to be installed per bike = 12 usd
    The total labor cost for installation = 30 usd .
    The total amount for material and installation = 12+30= 42 usd. We can share 50 / 50 from profit = 30/2 = 15 usd.
    Who wants to invest ?

    Note:
    I did not show yet my final design/prototype…very confidential.
    The final design is 40 % reduced in manufacturing/assembly of these parts because i was able to reduce more the parts and improved the location. All parts are already available on market, DIY assembly in just 1 hour .

    I hope you are interested…

    You still think consuming, plastik and moving a lot and far, adding to the piles of old tires and toxic waste is a solution? I doubt it. Just STOP moving. Restructure. Forego. Shut down your machines.
    Well – will it ever happen? I don't see the slightest reaction on climate change here in Europe. On the contrary…

  • Damogan g

    I wish I had that bike!!! If the whole world used those bikes imagine how great life would be. Less of those nasty accidentns and everyone keeping in great shape

  • Metal Machine Shop

    Great project! Streamlined recumbent bikes with electric assist would be a great alternative to a car for shorter commutes. Economical, healthy and environmental benefits. (People with a long commute should probably move house/job!)

  • tibo

    Its not ‘good’ for the environment… it just doesnt harm it… being a car guy it really triggers me how shit like this and everything else around the environment gets exeggerated… takin the bike instead of the car is not gonna restore the harm thats been done… the world is not gonna go like aw shit theyre all ditching the cars and takin the bikes i’ll have to do some healin to do like brahhhhhhh…

    Before you get on my ass i’ll just tell you i was determined to like get my liscence instantly at 18 yrs old n this n that im 21 now and do everything by bike… well… im kinda forced… mum wont sit next to me (as legally obliged) cos i smoke weed n yeah… my temporary liscence just expired a month ago and im fucked… in belgium (a lot of ) cyclists have this little banner that says (litterally translated) : again one car less……. i would be the type guy to get that ‘again one cyclist less’ banner thoooo hahahahah

  • Godscountry

    Why don't we have enclosed electric gas hybrids in narrow tracked twin- tandem-seat vehicles.Safety,performance,fuel economy,battery range.Motorcycles are so dangerous but so efficient, fun . An aerodynamic 2/3/4 wheeled narrow tracked or tilting vehicle would be revolutionary. An affordable fast, safe, quiet and efficient aerodynamic vehicle.LA,, NYC, and other large cities could reduce traffic by 50 percent.

  • skyak

    That "velotilt" looks like a research vehicle we did at GM in the 80s. It was powered by a single cylinder motorcycle engine with fuel injection and emission control (to meet emissions reg. of 90s and 00s). The question was 'can a practical vehicle get over 100mpg?' Answer, yes, easily if you bring the mass and size down to the scale of the payload -a car to carry 2 passengers should not weigh more than the 2 passengers.

  • Vincent Loparo III

    I'm the rural U.S. I commute 50km at a cruise speed of 125KPH on an interstate highway. It's amazing to see how human power is getting close to this. Can only imagine what it will do in small towns.

  • Lucas Liew

    Hahaha the Dutch's obsession with bicycles is taking a new turn. I personally don't think it's a revolutionary idea but to each their own.

  • svajeren

    Very cool bike. But the visibility of your suroundings is way too small in copenhagen people are driving like maniacs an with that poor outlook you would die pretty fast or get mamed for life

  • Never Gonnatell

    Funny how stupid so called smart people can be. Co2 was massively higher in the past. If we cultivated our forests instead of destroying them and making tree farms, Co2 would be irrelevant.

  • ReCycle Spinning

    Humans are lazy. We could have developed high speed rail and have smaller buses running at short intervals, combined with bikes. Instead we have suburban sprawl with car companies controlling our economy and way of life . We are just consumer units buying cars to keep our jobs now. If you think this is not true , why is the USA always fighting in the middle east? I appreciate the video and engineering it is showing what a machine powered by human can achieve >>>> but what is the point . You will put this bike in your car and drive it to and from a test track..

  • Ilya Liviz

    At some point the on-board bike computer will auto-sync with the freeway central computer which will do all the traffic control (turning, slowing, entering and exiting), and the drivers will only focus on pedaling and watching their favorite show while they are transporting themselves to, or from, work; awesome!

  • Funkteon

    These German and Dutch cunts in this video are retarded.. This thing is designed for straight lines only, yet they keep fapping on about it being a commuter bike..

  • ghost500e

    CLICKBAIT……..
    Not the fastest bike since NO records has been set.
    Also, this is NOT a bike, it's a friggin Tricycle…
