E-assist city bicycle

TPP continues to be impressed by the continual innovation being shown by bicycle builders to make bicycling in urban situations accessible to more people.  Here's the aptly named Faraday (look him up if you don't know the name) electrical assisting city bicycle.  The way this works is that pedaling or coasting charges batteries housed in the frame, and when you get to an upgrade the bicycle senses the additional resistance and the motor generates an assist.  It's also built sturdy and with a nice front carry rack.  Well, for some reason images don't want to load into Blogger so you'll have to look at the images via the link. It's also interesting to see that the traditional bicycle chain has been replaced by a drive belt.  And on the whole, the Faraday looks so much like a traditional bicycle that most people would never notice the difference.
