Faraday Porteur bicycle.

My cycling-crazy boyfriend has been gently nudging me to get a bike for the last year. He's finally wearing me down, so cool bikes are actually starting to catch my eye.

If I win the lottery, I want one of these. I wish it wasn't the price of a small, used car.

Despite its extraordinary capabilities (it’s electric!), we designed the Faraday Porteur to look and ride just like a familiar, high-quality bicycle. The Faraday Porteur looks and feels like a premium city bike, but it performs in a class of its own. Most importantly, the Faraday lets you work as much, or as little, as you want. Want to get there without breaking a sweat? No problem. Want to break a sweat AND break your record time? You can do that too. Faraday goes where you go, no matter what your mood or what your destination. 

Inspired by the classic European delivery bikes of the 1940’s and 50’s and updated with state-of-the-art components and construction techniques, the award-winning Faraday Porteur allows novice and experienced riders alike to go farther, faster, with ease. It’s impossible to tell it’s electric until you ride it – and then it’s impossible to imagine riding anything else.

Try a Linus Bike! I got a Dutchi 3 last year, 99% because it's just so damn pretty.
