I park where I yike

The latest in green gadgets coming onto the market is the yike bike. This electric motorized bike is designed for urban commuters who don't want to use a car, and it is quite nifty. The feature I really like is the way it folds up into a size somewhat equivalent to a large briefcase for carrying onto a commuter train or subway, or storing underneath a desk at work. This bike is scheduled for release in 2010 to a number of European countries and New Zealand. However it carries a hefty price tag of $4,500 - $5,500. Hopefully, the price will decrease as more units are sold.  The companies website can be found at: http://www.yikebike.com/
