I was disappointed to see this chalk-printing trailer, for the riders in the Tour de France, is towed behind a truck, not a bike like it’s predecessor. It looks like it works pretty well, though. The main problem with the original Bikes Against Bush prototype was the huge computer that had to be lugged around with it, but I see here that Nike/Livestrong is using a netbook or similar.
