Segway Too Much For You – How About This?

A bike with no pedals? The size of the kiddie trike? That’s New Zealand’s own YikeBike, which we previewed for you last year. It now looks to be available in the U.S. for around $3,600, which may be a low enough price to draw at least a few curious buyers to purchase one.

The YikeBike Electric ‘mini-farthing’ (a self-described new class of bikes, also known as a mini electric penny farthing) exists somewhere between an e-bike and a Segway. Upon encountering traffic, the owner of said device simply unfolds the lightweight, 22 pound frame, climbs up on the wheel-mounts, leans back, and away she goes for 6.2 miles on a charge, courtesy of the electric motor.
