The Shut­tle Bike Kit 2.0 con­verts any nor­mal road or mountain-bike bi­cy­cle into an am­phibi­ous ve­hi­cle, let­ting you cy­cle streams, rivers and lakes – imag­ine the pos­si­bilites. Rid­ers can pedal and pro­pel them­selves through wa­ter up to 10kph – twice as fast as an ex­pe­ri­enced pad­dler can move a ca­noe. The Shut­tle Bike Kit 2.0 drive makes ef­fi­cient use of the bi­cy­cle-gear­ing ra­tio. The rear tire of the bike drives a roller, which in turn drives a prop un­der the bike’s front wheel via a flex shaft, al­low­ing the use of all of the bike’s gears. The Shut­tle Bike is equipped with a load ca­pac­ity of 300 lbs. and steer­ing is con­trolled by sim­ply turn­ing the bike’s han­dle­bars. The price ranges from $2,300 to $2,500, de­pend­ing on bi­cy­cle-wheel size. For more in­for­ma­tion in­clud­ing assem­bly video, visit www.schae­ferin­no­va­
