Although it looks like a futuristic urban bike (or a design school student's interpretation of the future, anyhow) with its fat tires, flat pedals, flat bars, and off-the-shelf and completely unnecessary suspension fork, something the bike seems to be totally unequipped for is fenders and racks, which would be far more useful accessories for what appears to be the target users. Doesn't it rain in China? Don't Chinese commuters have to carry anything? Apparently not.
Baidu has a pretty slick-looking video available. See it here, or on their website:
The website is in English -- though from what I can find out about the bike, it doesn't seem likely that it will find its way to the U.S.
