FlyKly Smart Wheel: Turning Your Bike Into An Electric Bike

Here is an invention that can change everything about your commute. It can change the various things that can strain us while riding like hills, heat and sprawling distances. A group of bike enthusiast from New York have created the Smart Wheel by FlyKly Bikes ($550 Suggested price). This is a motorized bike wheel that fits almost any bike, instantly turning a regular old bike into an electric one.

The Smart Wheel is a pedal assist which means it helps you ride your bike effortlessly. The motor turns on when you start pedaling and begins accelerating to your desired speed. It stops when you stop. It saves you time by getting you to your destination faster and gets you there without losing your breath or breaking a sweat. This electronic rear bike wheel can take you on a 30 mph ride and last you for up to 30 miles on one charge.

We want to make cities more livable, and make them more people -- not car -- friendly, says Klansek.
 It's other features are security and we all need that. You can remotely lock the motor and track it in case someone with grubby fingers wants it. It also offers a FlyKly App to control and monitor the Smart Wheel. It also offers many other features like support and social connectivity and safety. It can also charge a phone and power lights on the bike.  You can even control the top speed for the wheel.

The New York-based team is currently raising funds to mass produce their invention on Kickstarter.

As of now, $493,256 has been pledged by 1,857 backers. They’ve got 10 days remaining in the funding period and expect to need at least $100,000 more to begin mass production by spring of next year.

  1. If you are looking for a folding bike, then go look around at other bike stores first and then come here. The other bike stores I visited (7 total) sometimes had a folding bike or two (or were just listed as a retailer with no stock) and those stores knew nothing about folding bikes. electric bikes nz
