Watching the Tour De France this year, I realized that no amount of artificial hormone and blood transfusion will ever turn me into Lance Armstrong. The only way to compete is with one of these electric bicycles. The new io Cruiser has a turbo mode that can go 25 MPH, and they have a model called The Jackal that does 40 MPH. These are battery powered, and require just a few hours to charge. And since they still have pedals, I can pretend like I'm pushing real hard.
