I like the idea. Lowered eco impact...not sure. Doesn't filling a scuba tank require a compressor....which runs off of electricity....which is usually made by ...coal? lol

But as for the bike itself, I love it

Electricity is generated by many types of fuel. Coal, gas, geothermal, wind and nuclear to name a few.

Pretty cool. Who cares how eco friendly it is. It cost $1.00 to fill it up. Maybe less. Depends on how much air it takes, and how much power your air compressor uses.
