YikeBike gains weight, but loses pounds

The mini electrical penny farthing lookalike gets a price drop. Brave enough to take one for a spin yet?

The YikeBike is one of those extravagantly expensive toys that really doesn’t need to exist, but helps make the world a more entertaining place, which is why we welcome the new Fusion model. Although not as light as its sleeker carbon fibre counterpart (which weights around 3kg less), the aluminium frame on the newest offering is still able to withstand up to 6.2 miles of wobbly fun without crumpling under the weight of any particularly hefty gadgeteers. Give your Segway a rest and pick up one of these 21st century circus rides for £1220. Self-esteem and bandages not included.
