Forget gas and electric bikes

Air driven bike is the future

never gonna work, but the green folks will think it ends polution

how do you get that air in the tank?

answer, with an electricity powered compressor

but wait, electricity is clean right

No, we burn coal to make it

but what about wind turbines and solar

those still consume plastics and also take energy to manufacture

Debbie Downer over here. I think these guys are just making cool bikes and getting people interested with the facade of environmentally friendly.

I wonder if the HPA tank is carbon fiber? No specs at all on their website.

yes its cool

being a scuba diver I know what it takes to keep a high pressure cylinder filled.

First, it has to be inspected every year, so you get to remove it every year.

They are made of aluminum or steel. The steel ones can take a few hundred lbs more PSI, but still only 3,300.

Then, you need a place to fill it up every 60 miles. Only place to do that is a dive shop. I bet the dive shop won't want anything to do with the liability behind it.

But maybe its a blast under the water. Strap on your SCUBA and go for a ride under the sea.

Actually the design is to remove it at every refill like propane. Carbon fiber goes to 4500 psi if he is using one of those.
