I haven't seen any pricing yet but if it's affordable, I expect to use it at some point.

Ready,… steady,… JUMP!There is no way I would trust my beloved velo to a clamp on the outside of a cable car travelling 50 metres above the River Thames. It's bad enough on the back of a Dartford Crossing control car.FrancisOn 15 May 12, at 15:18, Ray wrote:
When you go mountain biking down the ski runs the gondola’s have an arrangement for the bikes to be loaded on the outside.
However, given the description of the gondola’s swinging about I would hate to see my lovely Condor plummeting down into the Thames!!
Sounds more like a fun ride at a theme park!! Looking forward to that part!!--
