Super-compact Folding E-Bike For Short Commutes (Video)

The zippy folding e-bike shown in this video would be perfect for anyone with a short commute. It goes 20 miles on one charge, at speeds up to 15 mph, and it folds down to fit in your trunk or at your feet on a bus or train. A brilliant idea, coming soon to cities everywhere if the developers can raise enough funds. What better way to fight back against Big Oil than to help create cleaner renewable transportation choices? We won’t be posting many IndieGoGo projects here, but this one seems well worth supporting.
