None will believe if you tell them ‘The Babymaker’ is an electric bike. This stealth road bike is a combination of classic look and modern e-bike technology. Instead of the bulky batteries and ugly look which is common in e-bikes, they have secretly placed the battery and cables inside the frame. So, the bike keeps the vintage look which turns heads everywhere.
This sleek-looking e-bike was designed by San Diego based company FLX bike who also launched a successful $2 million campaign on Indiegogo in 2016. The Babymaker features a single-speed drive system, bullhorn or drop-handlebars, aircraft-grade aluminum frame, HUB motor, smart LED display and a 36V 7AH battery.
