Chris Boardman’s Theft-proof & Puncture-free Bicycle

Olympic cyclist Chris Boardman shows off his unique bike design which he not only says will be common in 20 years but is also theft-proof and features puncture-free tires. The futuristic-looking creation boasts a complete carbon fiber body with a built-in locking anti-theft mechanism which can only be activated by the touch of the bike owner’s fingerprints. Addition features include a calorie monitoring system, battery-powered assistance, and aforementioned puncture-free tires that have the ability to self-inflate. “It could be built now if there was a will. All the technologies are already there, it’s just that nobody’s put them all together before,” Boardman says.
I think I want to become a bicycle connoisseur.
