You'll get a charge out of this bicycle

Here's another electrified bicycle, the FlyKly, a very clever one at that.  The entire works is housed in a modified wheel hub so that regular pedaling or coasting down hills can charge batteries to power an electric motor at speeds up to 20 mph.  The wheels come in 24" and 26" diameters, and that really bums TPP out since the rear wheel on his BikeE is smaller.  Drat. Would have posted an image, and given them the tremendous free PR that comes from being mentioned in one of these blogs, but nooo, they had to say their images copyrighted, so this is the best that can be done.  Think about it fellows, or maybe this would be "fair usage"?
