I haven’t heard back from the owner of FootbikeUSA since we briefly discussed their posts on BikeForums.net, so I tried a Google search to see what I could find out about them outside of their website.
Yikes! I was hoping for maybe some product reviews, but no such luck. What I did find was an industrial design student in New York that has been working on his own footbike, a Yahoo! usergroup, and a mention of another design that was updated in 2002. I’m not knocking the company in any way, but they really need to get their name out there. It can’t be a good sign when only the top three results of your product name link back to you. Negative publicity would get them more hits than that, and I couldn’t even find anything negative.
I’d like to learn more about them, seeing as how there are actually organized races for them in Europe. Hopefully, Moses will get back to me soon.
