YikeBike have brought back the penny-farthing to demonstrate how smart technology can help people enjoy our increasingly stressful cities again. (Cheers, Signor Mino.)
The mini-farthing concept, and its expression, the Yikebike, was created by a bunch of successful entrepreneurs, engineers and dreamers, and aims to dramatically improve urban transport and give city dwellers a fast, safe, easy way to get around. It uses state-of-the-art technology, engineering and industrial design to create a new class of personal transport.
