The Colbert Tyro is Stephen's answer to the current economic crunch, and the mania for cheap, small foreign cars which it has wrought upon jittery American consumers.
The Tyro has been described as a tractor tire that you sit in. But it is so much more! It is a manly alternative to sissy French bicycles, which only Lance Armstrong can get away with riding in a masculine way.
Tyros have one speed, and a clutch (and boy had you better clutch on!). They are the perfect solution for single person travel. As long as you're traveling downhill.
