Electrobike Pi: your pedal power gets an electric boost
I love the idea of electrically powered bikes and motorcycles and I love concept bikes too. But this bike is just plain old ugly with pretty bits in it and on it.
It utilizes the NuVinci infinitely variable planetary transmission (as in the Ellsworth The Ride) which makes it efficient and that honking ugly frame does have practical aspects in that the batteries are housed within it for a pretty sano look.
But it looks like a big, unhappy frown.
