Somehow I admire the Kiwi’s, the guy’s who have that typical culture that is originated from New Zealand.
The story of the Yike Bike is a nice example. The Flight Of The Conchords (also Kiwi’s) inspired Grant Ryan for the name of his blog !
It’s a nice song, by the way. see the next video;
But this post is about the Yike Bike. Developed by Grant Ryan, a typical Kiwi who brought his ideas to the “Old Western World”. I think his vision on personal transport has a great potential future. Although I personally stay at strictly human powered bikes, I think that the mainstream city people will adopt this new kind of electric bike smoothly.
