"Phineas climbs into his newly constructed steamcycle, it's fires warming the seat behind him. With one last check of the boiler pressure levels he takes a nervous breath, this is it... Hands shaking with excitement he pushes up on the lever to start the engine. The pistons hiss into life accompanied by the deafening clatter of whirring gears. A second lever brings the brakestands up and sends the machine lurching forward. For a fleeting moment Phineas considers adding a periscope to allow him to see directly in front of the wheel but the idea is fast forgotten as the cycle picks up speed and the rush of success sets in."
