For over a decade I've been struck by the possibilities for front wheel drive cycling - a configuration that today has proven its excellence. On all kinds of surfaces - with a load up or without, with a child on the back or not – the Cruzbike is the daily rider, Dad's taxi, the weekend sprinter, and the lazy beach cruiser all rolled into one. And given the versatility in the Cruzbike design, which to me as a designer is very important, the front wheel drive system as we have implemented it still provides excellent efficiency and ergonomics. The Cruzbike's frame rigidly supports the crank to retain your precious cycling energy, without the need for expensive construction techniques or exotic materials. The seating position, the carefully shaped seat and the full body engagement in the cycling experience, as with a standard bike, ensure an exceptional ergonomic package. Add to that the use of standard parts and the Cruzbike design offers flexibility of use, economy, safety, efficiency and ergonomic perfection, all rolled into one.
Before designing the Cruzbike and founding Cruzbike Inc., I spent ten years in the architecture profession and fifteen years consulting before being made a Fellow of the Institute of Management Consultants. I have BA, BSc and MBA degrees from Australian universities. I am motivated by the hope that we all have a future on our fragile spaceship earth - and a vision that there are many more exciting and practical low energy vehicles yet to be built.
