Gtech is probably best known for inventing a high-tech cordless vacuum cleaner, but the company has also developed an innovative 'stealth' electric bicycle called the Gtech eBike.

This bike is powered by a special battery that is shaped like a capsule of sorts and conceals the motor in the rear wheel hub. This has the effect, in terms of appearances, of making the eBike look like a regular old commuter bicycle. In terms of performance however, you couldn't be farther from the truth -- after all, this bike's battery is capable of offering enough power for up to 30 miles of riding as well as a top speed of 15 miles per hour. The battery can easily be detached and charged to full power in only three hours.

This is an eBike that proves that electronically assisted cycling is not incompatible with old-school bicycle aesthetics.
