YikeBike – the new Penny Farthing

This may look like a glorified tricycle, but we love this new electric scooter called the YikeBike.

To be precise, the YikeBike is an electric bike which folds down to the size of a cymbal, making it both ecological and portable.  It can travel up to 20km, at a speed of 20km/h, on one charge, making it pretty perfect for short-distance commuters. At £3,500, it may not be the cheapest bit of kit around, but it’s got to be worth it just for not having to pedal. And it’s not a bad piece of design, either.
