Electric bicycle by vela wants to ease the urban commute
The Vela e-bike uses the traditional diamond frame made of 4130 chromoly steel but the frame includes a 370Wh lithium ion battery that slides down the main tube and front and rear LED headlights.
Fat road tires give better comfort and handle potholes or tram tracks better than skinny tires. Other features include usb ports to charge the phone, and a gps tracker for if the bike gets stolen. The project is currently seeking funding on kickstarter.
