Yike Bike

A folding, electric sit-upon, lightweight bike - perfect for urban commuting.

YikeBike is a statement about using smart technology to solve the problems of our increasingly congested, polluted, stressful cities. It is the first commercial expression of the mini-farthing concept, created up by a bunch of successful entrepreneurs, engineers and dreamers. We sat down to try and answer: * What is the simplest way to get from A to B with the aid of a machine? * What is the smallest wheel you can have to get a stable, safe, comfortable ride? * Can you make something small enough to be able to go with you anywhere in a city? * Wonder if we could make a unicycle dramatically easier to ride and fold? We were intrigued by creating something that could dramatically change urban transport, enabling city dwellers a fast, safe and easy way to navigate their environment. The result was the mini-farthing concept and its first expression, the YikeBike. It employs state-of-the-art technology, engineering and industrial design to create a new class of personal transport.
