I often wonder by seemingly innovative products fail on the market place.  About 15 years ago, Giant introduced a bicycle that could be used by both sexes, of 8B855364-87A6-4BCA-942B-823601FF5D33.jpegany size, and for any weight.  It was so futuristic that it was featured in the movie “I Robot.”

I recently purchased one for my wife and modified the crank set with a two position planetary gear.  She loves it.  I heard that they are very popular in Europe.

Where does one store their fiddle though?
