The YikeBike


Still looking for a Christmas gift? Perhaps somebody needs the YikeBike. This is a foldable electric bike with a six-mile range that can go up to fifteen miles per hour. It isn’t cheap: The cost is $3, 595.

I’m having horrible flashbacks of the Segway. The price certainly bares comparions however it is based on the better Mini-Farthing bike design for short distances in an urban environment; better because you can actually pedal. This you can't. The sitting up at least makes you more visible to traffic. You can watch the YikeBike in action here.

Yikes.
