Yay, forced obsolescence!

One of the problems with bicycles, from an entrepreneurial point of view, is that they last basically forever. You can buy a used bike for $50 and ride it every day for next thirty years. Steve Jobs loved bicycles, but you’ll notice he never tried to manufacture and sell them.

    According to the website “… we ride the same, archaic bicycles to and from work every day, disconnected from our environment and ourselves.” – I think they are confusing bikes and cars. Riding a bicycle you are completely connected to the surroundings. IMHO, having to listen to the “bike” will serve to disconnect the rider.
