Faraday Porteur on Kickstarter

Kickstarter is a great low risk way to launch a new product and the guys over at Faraday Bikes are trying to get in on the action. They just kicked off a Kickstarter campaign trying to raise the small sum of $100K to help them release their Faraday Porteur electric bike. Sounds like a lot of money but when the bikes themselves are selling for $3500 they only have to sell about 30 of them hit their goal. A bit of info about their Kickstarter campaign is below. Good luck!

Meet Faraday

The Faraday Porteur is the ultimate electric propelled utility bicycle - the first electric bicycle built by, and for, cyclists. Dubbed "the ultimate modern utility bicycle" by the Oregon Manifest bicycle design competition, the Faraday Porteur is an elegant, powerful electric bicycle - a high-quality city bike that is comfortable and effortless to ride – with or without the electric motor.
