Biking around a city in beautiful weather is a great alternative to public transportation, and the Valentin Vodev 'Vienna Bike' ensures that your journey won't be halted by steep hills or lack of storage space. The three-wheeler is electrically assisted, and can reach distances of 60km (with some pedaling) and speeds of up to 22km per hour. With a low charging time of only three hours, this trike is nearly unstoppable. The narrow frame allows for easy use and maneuvering, with a special steering and suspension system that makes the bike move like a two-wheeler.
The Valentin Vodev Vienna Bike can be easily folded for storage and transportation, and is strong enough to support 40 kg in the cargo box. The tricycle is a great alternative to a small car, especially for city-dwellers who don't want the hassle of dealing with parking meters (or, even worse, parking tickets). The bike's rear can also be suited with a seat for children, perfect for urban families. The electric trike debuted at the 2011 Bridgestone Eco-Rally on July 30, and I certainly hope to see it hit the streets in the near future.
