You know the best thing about people’s sudden need to go eco friendly? Bicycles are back in style! I never was one for lusting after cars and even though motorbikes are quite cool, nothing can capture the quiet stle of a simple bike. Then again, cycling all the way to work might not be possible so just get yourself a cool electric bike.
When it comes to ‘cool electric bikes’, the latest in that slightly short list is the CMYK Electric Bike. Designed by Manuel Saez, the bike is meant especially for those who are already using public transportation but require another form of transport in transit between commutes. The electric makes this really easy for the user because the bike can be folded away making it easier to carry on the subway, or into the office. a two hour charge of its lihtium batteries will give the user 50 minutes of a much-needed boost.
The snazzy bike has already won second place at the People’s Design Award at NY’s Cooper Hewitt and was much admired at the 2009 Sparks Award. the CMYK Electric Bike will be available from next year at the range of $600 to $800.
