the coolest bicycle ever…

Faraday-Porteur-bike-1

Faraday-Porteur-bike-1

Before we moved to a hilly part of LA, I used to enjoy riding my bike in Coronado {where we lived for a year before moving to LA}. The streets were wide, the land was flat, and it was just fun and easy to ride around on. Now that we're in a hilly area, it's nearly impossible to ride around without the feeling that my lungs might fall out of my body. So, when I came across this new electric bike by Faraday {which is being developed in San Francisco where hills reign supreme}, it really struck a chord with me.

Not only is the design pretty amazing {um, hello leather and wood mixed with white and mint green accents!}, but it's electric to help give you a boost up hills and has a really useful utility basket up front. You've gotta see this video that shows it in action. And while it's pricey for a bike, if you live in a city where a bike is your only mode of transportation, it seems like a really functional and beautiful option. โ€” Joy

  2. This is beautiful in both design and concept, but I would have to wonder how I could stand to ride it anywhere. I would be so afraid of theft and also what it if got (gasp!) dirt on it?!
    I know there are plenty of similarly priced bikes out there though, how do people secure them without developing an ulcer??

  3. Ever since graduating from college I have missed riding my bike so much. This on looks like the perfect grown up version of the beach cruiser I used to have. The little flat basket is great and the leather touches look so classic.
    Stay in the Lines

  4. Wow- awesome bike! I just visited California and I can see how that would be needed in such hilly areas! I live in the flat of Texas right now. Not my favorite place – would love to live in Colorado!
