David Gregg and co-anchor Rene Syler on The Early Show Friday (CBS/The Early Show)
The Quadribent was one of five transportation alternatives featured on TV from New York on CBS The Early Show on July 22, 2005.

"In recent years, innovative companies have been developing modes of transportation that promote monetary, fuel and environmental conservation.

"Record gas prices and an increasing interest in preserving the environment have motivated consumers to search for affordable and clean transportation alternatives to the family car for getting around town."

David Gregg, senior editor of Best magazine, tells THE EARLY SHOW about some fun alternatives to typical transportation that just may keep the family car in the garage.
