With the growing popularity of electric bikes in both urban and rural places, the Rubbee Electric Drive could be a game changer. Considering how cost effective and convenient it is to have a motorized bicycle (at least when compared to other modes of motorized transportation), it was only a matter of time before someone invented an attachment that could be placed on any existing bicycle. In a way, the Rubbee Electric Drive is simply a commercial version of all the do-it-yourself hacks already out there.

Created in Kaunas, Lithuania, the Rubbee Electric Drive is very easy to install. Basically, all a person needs to do is mount it on a bike, attach the throttle and it is good to go. It is pretty stylish to boot.
