We cover a good deal of electric bicycles as well as concepts here at EarthTechling, but few are as stylish as the latest design we recently spotted online called the INgSOC bike by Edward Kim and Benny Cemoli from Los Angeles, California.
As you can see from the image below, the bike is extremely stylish, and tailored for commuting more than off-road adventures. The carbon-fiber frame, which comes in a variety of colors, houses an iPhone mount between the seat and handle bars for GPS navigation and other uses.
The INgSOC has three power modes, an all-electric motor option where riders wouldn’t pedal, an electric-assist operation that gives owners a boost of speed, and a stage where pedaling charges the depleted battery. No specifics have been released yet, but battery life would depend on whether or not the bike’s two lights were being used in addition to powering a smart phone.
The designers seem to have received a good deal of interest in their innovation, but no word yet as to if the concept will be made into an actual product. We’re guessing if it does, then it will be pretty pricey considering the features, however, potentially worth the high cost for such a sweet ride.
