If you remember, I once researched on electric bicycles for commuting..
Just so happens that my school had an exhibition, on all things green! And look what we got here!
The Yike Bike!! I never thought I have seen it in action haha, and the guy even let me try riding it!
I couldn't contain my excitement, yet I knew the carbon fibre version cost SGD$10k, well first things first, how was the ride?
Well, it's really really weird... Quite different. I was told to relax the upper body, and steer with the body! I took a while to get used to the feeling, the front wheel propulsion and tiny rear wheel doesn't help instill confidence either... But it became natural after a while and you start to enjoy the piece of tech. I never got it to maximum speed though, I wonder how it would be like...
