This Electric Bike Has A Cool Little Secret

We love cool things here at Techi: bikes are cool, right? But not every bike is created equally, and some, unfortunately, are not created at all. This is one of those that has yet to have been created.

But trust us, it should be.

The designer — Andi Klug — calls this concept CYOOO, and it is an assisted electric bike. If you need a bit of a boost or are just worn out from pedaling, this bike is great in that context.

Yet as great as that is, it is only half of what makes this bike cool.

The other half is that this concept also allows for the bike to be folded down into a more compact form that is easier for transportation and storage: the seat is moved down, the handlebars are transformed into a better form, and the front wheel slides back into the frame. It is ingenious.

Then, when you ready to hit the road on your two-wheeled machine, you unfold it to reveal your full 20-inch bike (with an optional Emeril Lagasse “BAM!” to follow for dramatic effect).

We also don’t mind the clean green and white design — it’s sexy!
