Enter Mikael Kjellman, a Swedish design engineer on a mission to
stick two fingers up at fuel-guzzling V8’s develop a “weather-protected and more comfortable bicycle.” By all accounts it looks like he’s actually got the whole thing nailed – not only is his invention ‘weather-protected and comfortable’ but it’s electric and capable of doing 25km/h with a range of 60km.. that’s almost as good as a Nissan Leaf.
Mikael been driving around, testing, debugging and improving his prototype for over a year before setting up a crowdfunding campaign to help get the design into production. To date, the campaign has raised over €60,000, which, according to his plans, will enable Mikael to develop ‘a complete kit with all the parts and materials needed’.

If you’re not sold on it then you clearly haven’t watched the video… this thing has more street cred than Bono with his shirt open.
We’re speechless…. let’s just enjoy the euphoria.
