The Yike Bike is an electric bicycle invented by New Zealander Grant Ryan. It uses his "mini-farthing" layout, a compact version of the penny-farthing style of bicycle with handlebars situated below the rider. Released at the Eurobike Trade Fair in Germany on 2 September 2009, it has been stated the bike has the potential to become the most commonly owned transport device in the world.[1]

The smallest and lightest electric folding bicycle in the world [2], it weighs less than 10kg. Yike Bikes will be available in early to mid 2010.
