I felt like a kid
We met up with Haley in her home in Bernal Heights outside of San Francisco.
SP: Were you excited to get the Wheel?
Haley: Yes! I was so excited to get it because it's so sleek and matches the red of my bike. I'm also happy I didn't have to get a new bike – I love my single speed!
SP: Has the Wheel made a difference in your daily life?
Haley: I used to have to walk my bike up the last several blocks to get to my house, but I don't have to do that anymore and my commute is shorter.
SP: What's the riding experience like?
Haley: I tell people I can't recall the last time I've been amazed by technology in an age where we expect it to be good. But on my first ride I literally "wippied" with joy. I felt like a kid – it was so much fun!
SP: Do you get any comments about it?
Haley: A lot of people don't believe me that all of the technology is in the Wheel. They're always looking for the throttle... I try to pretend that it's really just me going that fast.
