Electronic Foldable YikeBike: Cool or Not?

If bikes were as ubiquitous as cars, the ozone might not look like lace. In addition to being a great form of exercise, biking is also a great way to deal with heavily trafficked urban streets. In case you don't want to pedal, but still don't want to sit in traffic, there is the YikeBike. This mini two-wheeler is electric, so there is no need to pedal. It has been redesigned in other ways as well. The handlebars are next to the seat so you sit upright instead of hunched over to improve visibility. The speed is limited, so it can only go about 12 mph (20 km/hour), even downhill. Being fairly new, this bike costs around $5,500 — considerably more than a really nice road bike. Check out this video to see the YikeBike in action.

They could have made it look better than that. It looks funny but I do like that you can pack it up and take it with you.

So much money for such a small thing? Lol. I'll stick to my regular bike that goes twice faster. And Anonymous, it's never too late to learn how to ride a bike. I haven't really cycled until I was 16 and I wonder how could I live for so long without it.

Um, yeah, riiiight. I could buy a used Toyota for that much. I'd rather pay a couple hundred bucks for a bike that you can pedal. People are way too lazy these days.

That commercial is kind of hilarious. That thing is a seated segway! It seems pretty handy, but I can't believe it's selling for $5,500. You could buy a used car (that could go 6x the speed) for that price. Or you could buy a bicycle for much less and still go faster and get exercise!
