What is the estimate retail price of the wheel? And how long can it run on a single charge?

@gttay Looks like $950 and 20-50 miles @ up to 20 mph according to the Kickstarter.

What's the difference with the Copenhagen wheel?

@ralphmartynward I think that their video did a nice job at subtly communicating some differences. Primarily, this is front wheel drive instead of rear wheel in Copenhagen design. Front wheels are a lot easier to take on and off, and they show a use case where bike is stored outside without the wheel initially. Also, this suggests that you could mix and match with a normal wheel depending on mood. To me this alone could be more appealing for some riders. Also, this has swappable battery and airless tire. But Copenhagen offers different tire sizes. Neither model seems to be compatible with disk brakes, requiring rim brakes. Overall, a move toward conveniently retrofitting existing bikes is positive for consumers, cool to see innovations heating up here - both near Boston too.
