    Met the founder of Ryno Motors today; a very cool one wheeled e-cycle designed and being built in the Portland area. Is it transportation, recreation... V6IrtMRhkEUpzhPkw%3D&url=http%3A%2F%2Frynomotors.com%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2013%2F04%2FRYNO12.jpg What is Ryno?

    What is a ? Well, it’s less than a motorcycle (in some ways), but in other ways, it’s so much more. One-wheeled, electric-powered. A machine that has no greater footprint than you do. Capable of operating at speeds up to 10 miles per hour

    I saw a CNN piece on this company and its founder last year. Very cool Hope that he makes it to production.

    Well I'm not sure what volume of production but they were building the first few cycles. They had just launched reservations in the last few days and had more than 100.

    I can say it looks like a lot of fun to ride and is amazingly stable, another tribute to electric power-train.

    I want to see it brake so hard that the wheel is at its traction limit, without the person face planting. Then I'd be really into it.

    This sounds a lot like a sit-down Segway to me.

    There is so little news out of Ryno I get the feeling its DOA. Either they ran our of money or they ran into an insurmountable problem...
