3D Printed Adult's Bicycle

Lifted from a Eureka Magazine Article. "The 'Airbike' is made of nylon but, according to EADS, is strong enough to replace steel or aluminium and requires no conventional maintenance or assembly. It is 'grown' from powder, allowing complete sections to be built as one piece; the wheels, bearings and axle being incorporated within the 'growing' process and built at the same time. Because it can be built to rider specification, it requires no adjustment."

How does it ride?
or how much does it cost?

I heard it'd set you back a few tens of millions! err. i'll stick with the bike i've got cheers...
I wonder how they deal with the chain & tires.
Looks like its belt driven from the picture
Is it on thingiverse yet?

BBC had a mini feature on the bike made from a 3D Printer (and British businesses).
seems impossible to change the tire
