Future Developments include Bicycles for Dogs and Cats
Taking the lead from Electra Bicycle’s concept of “Electra Makes Bicycles for the Rest of Us“, Trek Bicycles and El Camino Bike Shop are Alpha Testing the development of Bicycles for Cats and Dogs.
Mountain bike legend Gary Fisher was the developer of the concept. “I was laying back in my favorite chair smoking a fat one, when I looked out my window and saw my cat jump on a bicycle to escape the local dog chasing him down the street.” says Mr. Fisher. With the first class aerospace engineers at Trek and consultants from Circus Soleil concept to prototype was only 6 months.
Work on the “Dog Bike is ahead of schedule, but release of the Cat Bike is at least a year behind. Dogs have more instinct to raise their hind leg and mount the bike.
