We saw this cool machine at Sea Otter. It’s a Gibike – electric/human hybrid. Designed to be an inner city commuter. At this time it’s a prototype and the inventors are looking for some investment via Kickstarter to get into production.
It’s not only a beautiful bicycle it’s also well thought out in terms of functionality. I was drawn to the swoopy lines, open crankset and single sided chainstay and front end. It also folds easily for storage with just one lever, it has a multi gear rear hub, USB charging port, non-greasy belt drive and anti-theft locks built right in. Head to their web site to get all the details right from the source.
