An E-Bike, but not as you know it

Created by New Yorker Jeff Guida, ShareRoller takes the shape of an ordinary briefcase, perhaps so as not to look out of place among the hustle and bustle of Manhattan's streets.

Packing a brushless DC motor capable of delivering 750 W of continuous power however, the ShareRoller attaches to the mounting bracket above the front wheel of the bike and has a thumb throttle control that pops out and clips onto the handlebars. Swinging out of the case and into position, the motor assembly then uses a drive belt to transfer 1.0 hp to the bike's tire, enabling an 18 mph (29 km/h) top speed without the need to peddle.

And here's an e-bike for ColinOldnCranky. A Ryno Microcycle. On second thoughts - I'll have one too.

Good try. But this would be closer to my modus. Performance is similar though the more modest looking SBU3 maintains a comfortable lead in speed, distance, cost and adverse outcomes when making an unplanned dismount..

Though the Ryno does look pretty awesome.
