I don’t use Lyft or Uber as often, and never use a car now.
We caught up with Eduardo at his place in LA, where he’s studying for his Master’s in urban development.
SP: How has the Copenhagen Wheel changed your daily life?
Eduardo: I don’t use Lyft or Uber as often, and never use a car now. I think I’ve only used a car twice since buying the Wheel.
SP: So you use your car less?
Eduardo: Oh yeah, way way less.
SP: Describe riding with the Wheel
Eduardo: The Wheel just kinda knows how fast you want to go. It’s very intuitive.
SP: Do you let anyone else try it?
Eduardo: Yes. My friends mostly, but sometimes when I go to some biking events I’ll let other people ride the bike if they look friendly or trustworthy.
SP: How do people react?
Eduardo: Almost a unanimous “wow” and they ask how fast it can go and for how long — after I let them know (the top speed is 20 MPH and it gets up to 30 miles per charge) they say they want to buy one!
SP: How would you describe the Wheel?
Eduardo: Dude, the Wheel is going to change the way people move around. I think this is the next big thing! I feel like if a lot of people own this thing, it would just change everything.
