MAARSSEN, Netherlands (February 24th) – Although the official Press-conference is scheduled for tomorrow at the Olympic Stadion in Amsterdam, several media in The Netherlands announced the new Smover concept already today. An all-automatic bicycle that takes over the controls. Gear shifting, suspension adjustment and light management are all taken care of by a built in computer. Power for that computer is generated by the rider: by pedalling not only does the bike move forward, but it also supplies the energy for the electronic brain that governs the bike. A Shimano concept, developed together with major bike companies, the ‘Smover’ might point the way to the future. (MH) source: Spits!
