all you need for a convenient city ride is included in this new electric bike design by STRØM. the amsterdam-based e-bike makers have streamlined their previous design to include a detachable 350 watt battery pack that fits seamlessly into the bike frame, and locks in to combat theft. the unit has lights built in for increased visibility that can be activated by switch. it comes in a wide array of size and color variations, and starts at $799.

‘STRØM city’ is the light and flexible. it’s remarkably like a normal bike, only it can go from 0 to 20 mph without the aid of pedaling or gravity, propelled by the electricity within the battery. the bike can also be used without its motor, and includes 7 gears — in case you want to experience the olden ways of riding a bicycle. it’s also a nice feature if you’re looking to work out, or if you forgot to charge the battery after a long night out.
people on the street will be amazed at how fast you can go with such minimal physical exertion. they’ll be looking for the motor with no avail as you cruise right on by. one of the largest aesthetic challenges is incorporating a sleek-looking motor that is light and out of the way — STRØM has achieved this. ‘STRØM city’ is currently seeking funding on indiegogo.
