With the Segway, I don't have to pedal, but I can buy a simple single-speed Schwinn for about $100 and get excerise at the same time.
Maintenance costs for a bike are super low. What are the real or projected maintenance costs for a Segway?
Repo Man said:Has anyone watched the Fox Show "Arrested Development?" I love that show, and I really get a kick out of Jobe, the magician brother who rides around on the Segway. I think that is the first instance of the segway in TV/Movies.
