    Hey Inmates!

    I've been following the development of this bike for a little while and it finally hit crowdfunding. I think the design is futuristic, minimalist, and brilliant. Comes from a very nice man in Stuttgart, DE.

    120lbs!! 50 mph top speed. 50 miles range. Smartphone integration. It looks like the ultimate electric urban machine...grocery getter, class attender, brewery runner, etc. I also dig the fact that it looks to comfortably fit an adult male.

    Check out the project and support if you desire:

    Yeah electric bikes seem to have that sticker shock. Like Tesla famously does you gotta factor the gas savings and maintainence savings into the price to make it attractive.
