At Interbike this year, there were plenty of bikes with electric assist, and a few that seemed to be all-out electric scooters. And then there was the SBU.



It's a self-balancing unicycle. Those are footrests, not pedals. To go forward, lean forward. I guess you lean back to stop. It's like a Segway for people with balance. It's definitely not a bike by any stretch of the imagination, but as far as distribution goes, bike shops would be the most logical choice. Oh, it weighs almost 25 pounds, and sells for about $1,500.

So, which is it?

When I hit the "pick 6" I'll buy a few of these and use them to play uni-polo.

I think it will be received as a bike. At what point does it become a motorcycle? We've argued definitions in the past but we need to establish a definition.

The DMV generally separates traffic into pedestrian, and non-pedestrian. From there, you have HPV and non-HPV. This is non-HPV.
