Retro-inspired Faraday electric bike to hit production lines
Bicycles are indeed one of the best ways to get around town in today’s day given the fact that these clean and green modes of transport quickly beat packed streets and the like. Giving bicycles a retro-look, Ideo came up with the Faraday, an electric bicycle that more than just a blast from the past. Built by Portland’s Rock Lobster Cycles, the bicycle is currently on KickStarter looking for funding with designer Adam Vollmer running the show. Sporting lithium-ion batteries that provide a throttle assist with a range of up to 10 to 15 miles, the Faraday charges up in 45 minutes and sports a pair of LED headlamps. Priced at $3,500, this electric bike will cost $300 when it hits production lines by next year.
