Agreed, but as the cited source states, "Several components that
eventually played a key role in the development of the automobile were
originally invented for the bicycle."

Other fm's like nautilus or dolphin are automobiles,equipped with
stereos, vanity mirrors, air conditioning, seat belts. Rodent is a plain
and simple bicycle, light and nimble. And faster.

Can a bicycle really be faster than an automobile? Take a look at this
video of Rodent versus the automobile...


no unnecessary frills...
