RevoPower In-Wheel Bicycle Engine
If there's one thing to look for in a peaceful bicycling experience, it's the relaxing sound and exhaust of a gasoline-powered internal combustion engine! The RevoPower "Wheel" is a hub-based bicycle motor that can easily be swapped with the front wheel of almost any adult bicycle. The Wheel contains a balanced 23cc, two stroke internal combustion engine and gear train that can achieve speeds of up to 20 mph. A simple throttle device on the handlebars controls the speed of the engine, and a fuel tank in the water bottle holder powers it. The Wheel should be released in late 2006 to early 2007; shortly after which the product will be taken off the market when the Wheels begin disconnecting from their bicycles en masse and slamming into congregations of old ladies, kittens, and newborn babies.
