Somebody sent me a link to this foldable electric bicycle designed, I gather, for urban commuting. This ad is ill-advised in a number of ways (is the more egregious crime the green wave of faux-exhaust or the attempt to make ‘yike’ a verb?), but you get the general idea:
There’s a longer Discovery Channel piece on the site that explores the design and features of the bike a bit more. I like that it breaks the ‘lean forward over the bars’ paradigm of biking.
The key question, though, is this: is it less nerdy than a Segway?
