Yikes! It's a YikeBike, The Future Of Personal Transportation

Oh my future! It's a YikeBike, a futurist looking electric bike that is designed to get you from point A to point B. Did I mention that it is foldable?

With a 6 mile range, a 15mph top speed, and a $3,500 price tag, it ain't cheap, it ain't fast, and it doesn't go far, but it's still the coolest looking bike on the block!

Now, this isn't the bike to just jump on and ride into the sunset, it takes a bit of a learning curve and some practice before trying it out on the streets. The last thing you want to do is pay $3,500 bucks to just crash the thing head on into an innocent pedestrian. Yikes, I wonder if that is why they call it the "YikeBike? Who knows. The only other thing I have to say is that if you like unicycles, then the YikeBike is like a super futuristic unicycle sure to get you from point A to point B. Will it replace the Segway? It's possible, at the least it could offer up some competition.

Here is a promo video for the YikeBike. For more information visit
