Who wants a super small electric bike? I do, I do*! Feast your eyes upon the world’s lightest and most compact electric bicycle. Just start pedaling and the electricity will kick in to provide power assistance. Fold it up and stash it under your desk or table, ideally after you arrive at your destination somewhat pristine- or at least with an un-sweaty shirt- thanks to the electrical assistance.
A detachable quick charge 24V battery can take you up to 15 miles (25 km); turn the motor on for steep hills and turn it off to just use your leg muscles. The promise of 10 second transformation from folded to full is enough to get most of us interested- no worries about standing around like a glipe while your train/subway/boss passes you by. Back the project over at (you guessed it) Kickstarter.
*Until I remember I live in Houston, and I’d get killed riding one of these around the streets.Available from Kickstarter, Â£515.00.
