That IS a dream of a commuter bike there. Enclosed drive, integrated headlight and generator, coaster brake, nice alloys in the construction, fat tires to take the cobblestones. Sweet! I can see why they're drooling over it.
(I spent MANY years commuting to work by bicycle. )
It takes 3 men to solve the problem, it will take a dozen women to solve the problem (3 are actually solving the problem, while the rest of them are gossiping about the problem, and similar problems that happened to another friend of theirs, which actually not solving the current problem at all)
