Faraday Porteur Electric Bicycle

You are looking at the prototype of the Faraday Porteur Electric Bicycle—a real stunner, with lithium batteries housed in the frame, active pedal assist, sensors that gauge your pedaling and LED lights in front and back. Faraday Bicycles, the San Francisco-based company behind the bike is looking for funding through Kickstarter. This is one of the few electrics we have seen that looks less like a kiddie crotch rocket and more like a classic pedaler; would be good to see them on the streets.
