I love the RYNO. BUT....I would give it a gasoline engine with 3 gallon tank, make its top speed about 20 mph. It would sell like crazy in urban environments esp in "poor" countries where roads are imperfect and travel distances are short. Also in cities like Rome. As it is, it is neither fish nor fowl and will not succeed. Is it a Segway? No....Is it a scooter? No..... It's both! But it is not capable enough to be a scooter, and it is TOO capable (fast) to be a Segway. So on the sidewalk the pedestrians won't accept it, and on the roadway it's too slow.
Gimme that d@mn company I will put a gasoline engine in that thing, sell the dickens out of it and retire to my private island where I will conduct physics experiments on rabbits with pancake helmets disproving the myth of counter-steering and saving lives of my fellow bikers!

RYNO: it's a dessert topping. No, it'a floor wax! It's a dessert topping AND a floorwax.

I have spent years trying to convince my grandkids about the use of helmets (non Nazi of course) and here is a guy, with a what ever you call it, wearing a helmet. Cool. I was going to show the kids this to get my point across but decided I will leave them to believe their electric scooter is the latest.

Guilty as charged, although I didn't start that thread.

I am very concerned about low experience riders who may be reading this thread and may get the totally wrong idea. Some very irresponsible things have been said by people who should know better.

Firstly, that was Dog's bunny not mine. Secondly it is a pikelet not a pancake. Can we avoid deliberate attempts to mislead and confuse please

I grew up riding in the woods of Mass., and pull the bars to change direction, too. It was amazing how fast you'd hit the ground if you did it wrong!!!

But was it a pikeleted bunny or a bunnied pikelet?

Ever thought this forum might be a lot less random if any of us actually read the contents of each others posts?

You don't have to be stupid to be wrong, and you don't have to be wrong to be stupid.

Jonkster says it's a pikelet not a pancake! I never heard of a pikelet! I wouldn't know a pikelet from a Nazi helmet. I wouldn't recognize a pikelet if one were sitting atop my pet bunny! What is the difference between a pikelet and a pancake anyway?

Well. If there's a nazi helmet in the vicinity nobody says "don't tell him your name, pancake"
