The next big idea in bikes?

Post travel, zombie-like, getting caught up on the news and noticed that “ideas and technology” were trending today. I guess on that topic, people are looking for the next big idea to grow their business and their career in this economy.

Reading the articles and writing one myself about Intel’s SciFi, I wondered what the next big idea is in cycling? I think 08 was cargo in the States.


What about 09? Is it bikes and technology or back to simplicity? Electric? Robots? Washing machines?

That washing machine’s great!  Cycle powering everything would take up a lot of space, though.  I wonder about some sort of central cycle power station with attachments (like a kitchen-aid mixer - or like the rafter mounted shaft driving belts to power the tools in the red barn Boeing building at the museum of flight (here in seattle))

I guess I think about this in the context of James Howard Kunstler’s “World Made by Hand” in which they don’t use bicycles since they can’t get / make rubber.
