    Yike Bike - Worlds First $4500 Electric Folder Bike

    An electric folder bike with underseat steering, electric-powered and packable in its own cool bag. Yours for the hefty price tag of $4500. You can order it in any color as long as its black.


    This is what it looks like - a black toy for the yuppie set:



    Yike, indeed!

    The price tag is due to the bike being made entirely of carbon fiber composite and it weighs 22 pounds. Its really more like riding a unicycle but there's the stability of the second wheel. One thing no one has to worry about is locking it up. Just fold it and take it where you go.

    Yike, indeed.

    I see a total sum of four people ever using one of these on a regular basis.
