The Best Guests Come Bearing Gifts: The Yike Bike

by Chiara Atik · December 7, 2009

The Yike Bike: This weird looking contraption is the world's smallest folding electric bike. It goes up to 12 miles an hour!

The bike is easily stored, can be charged anywhere, and has a range of six miles, which wouldn't get you very far in Los Angeles, but is just perfect for Manhattan. I can't really imagine anyone not looking completely ridiculous riding around on a Yike Bike, but maybe all it needs is a trendsetter to slowly introduce the concept to the world. Maybe Mark Ronson, who recently partied at The Wired Store where Yike Bikes are being sold, would be the perfect candidate to make this mode of  transportation vogue.
