Clip-on electric front wheel for bicycles
Ignore that the "Cyclemotor" electric bike conversion kit looks like a homebrew project — it sort of is. The inventors of the kit, Neodymics, haven't yet gotten the financial backing they need to make something salable. The hope is that commuters will find the ease of the conversion simple enough to use their own bikes, as the kit clips onto the front fork and bolts on a couple of controls to the handles.
There's one charming aspect to the design that I hope remains in a production model: the use of the standard DeWalt power tool battery pack to power the 1HP motor.
