YikeBike is an amazing invention and quite possibly is the best urban bike of today. It's unusual in the way you ride it - you actually seat backwards on it, in comparison to common bikes. It is the "first commercial expression of the mini-farthing concept". It waits 22 lbs and is made from a super-strong carbon fiber composite. It's electric and chainless, charging for typical use is only a few cents per day, can get up to 25km/hr speed and lasts for about 10km without recharging, on a nano lithium phosphate battery that takes only 30 min. to charge. Priced at $4,450. Ergonomic and safe, it's equipped with electric anti-skid brakes, built-in indicators, LED lights, a 1kW motor and a 20-inch front wheel. It's quite portable too: you can take it on bus, train, car or elevator with ease thanks to its compact size when folded. Folding/unfolding takes about 15 seconds. And it produces no carbon emission which makes it good for environment. Find out more or purchase this portable urban bike at YikeBike.
