<p>I wish I had one of these.</p>
<p>I wish some bicycle company like Sun bicycles would make them. But it takes years to get them interested in a new concept. Just look at ow long it took for the Extra-cycle. Now several company make them. Write them letters.</p><p>see more bicycles of the future here <a href="http://commutercycling.blogspot.com/2011/08/ultimate-utility-bike.html" rel="nofollow">http://commutercycling.blogspot.com/2011/08/ultimate-utility-bike.html</a></p><p>and ask these people how much they would charge to build one <a href="http://hpm.catoregon.org/" rel="nofollow">http://hpm.catoregon.org/</a></p><p>I would make them my self, but no one would be willing to pay $3000 for the parts and labor.</p>
<p>I could build the frame for about $800... I will have to do some math.</p>
<p>Looks like about $500 worth of parts plus labor and wheels etc.</p>
