Ditch the pedals and gears, give up the gas guzzler and get on board the best ride in town: super cool scooters from Kickbike and Kickstart. No longer just for kids, these scooters appeal to environmentally conscious commuters everywhere. Lightweight yet incredibly sturdy, they provide a smooth ride with just a simple push.
I've seen clever commuters here in San Francisco scooting to work on these. And they do look cool. Much faster than walking and easier to cope with than a bike. This might just be my next buy.
