News Summary: Bikes join cars at Detroit auto show

News Summary: Bikes join cars, trucks at auto show in Detroit in display of pedal power

Associated Press

THE SIGHTS: Cars, trucks and concept vehicles rule the auto show in Detroit, but bikes are among the displays too. Some are just accessories, but some are for sale.

THE REASON: Bikes offer a potential marketing boost for automakers, who often note when vehicles can pack a bike inside. They're associated with an active, healthy lifestyle — even by those who don't ride bikes.

THE BIKES: Bikes on display include an electric-powered one from minicar maker Smart, a Prius-branded bike with a smartphone dock and the K Velo from Kia, an automaker that has roots in bicycle manufacturing.
