This looks like a lot of fun. Practical for sure, but sliding out that rear end in the snow is what really appeals to me.
It might be my new dream urban bike, beating out the MK1. Maybe not surprisingly, both bikes are Scandinavian. One advantage the MK1 has is that Butchers and Bicycles are actually in production and selling their cool trikes world-wide. Mikael Kjellman, designer of the PodRide, had a successful IndieGoGo campaign but his website is down and it looks like this great idea may never make it into production. Too bad.
