Crowdfunding: Five innovative bicycle projects looking for funding

We share 5 up-and-coming creative bicycle-related projects looking for funding

An instant hit with the UKs media, FlyKly’s Smart Wheel aims to fit on to any bike, helping cyclists ride their bikes “effortlessly”. It’s a motorised bike wheel, that essentially turns a bicycle into an e-bike at a fraction of the cost.

FlyKly’s Niko Klansek shared his vision, “we wanted to make cities more liveable, and make them more people — not car — friendly.”

The design comprises of a wheel hub that has a self-contained, battery-powered motor than can propel a bike at speeds as high as 20-miles per hour for as far as 30 miles on one charge. The wheel even recharges itself when coasting downhill.

The FlyKly may already have hit it’s $100,000 goal, but there’s still time to invest to help them reach their stretch goals.
