Default Almost "Self-Propelled" 40MPH Bike Kit

This short video was meant to highlight Mr. Bate's invention of an adaptor which allows a gasoline engine to run on methane gas. However, near the end of the video he shows another of his inventions ... a kit which he says will attach to any bicycle and make it almost "self-propelled". The bike part of the video starts at minute 11:45. Cool!

Hmm, he's obviously added a flywheel to the bike, hence the reason it doesn't like stopping. For wide open spaces, that's an awesome idea. You'd live about 5 minutes on it around here, though.
