What is the Wheelman?
The Wheelman is a center mounted engine and frame vehicle, supported at
each end by a spoke less wheel into which your feet can be inserted
while standing upright.
The 2010 Wheelman has a 50cc 2-stroke engine which takes a mix
of gas and oil just like a weed whacker. It holds one liter of
fuel and will give you a run time of over one hour or 30 miles and
speeds up to 25 MPH.
The Wheelman is also known as: Bushpig, G-Wheel,
Xcite Bike and G-Motion. It was named one of Time Magazine's "Best
Inventions of the Year in November, 2002" The Wheelman has also been
featured on television shows like: The NBC Today Show, Ripleys Believe
It Or Not, Livin Large and X-Corps TV.
How does it work?
The learning curve of a Wheelman is very similar to
skate/snow/surf board riding. And if you have any experience in these
you will be surprised on how fast you pick it up.
At speed you use body movement to steer and at low speed (and you can
ride a Wheelman at an extremely slow pace) you can angle the
front wheel from side to side with your foot. The speed is controlled
by a cable type controller held in your hand, the more you squeeze, the
more fun you have!
To slow down, simply let off of the throttle for a slow smooth
deceleration. To stop quickly, simply pull the brake lever on the hand
