With the traffic congestion associated with many roads in Lagos, Nigeria, commuters might want to get a YikeBike.

The 20 inch front makes it stable enough to handle potholes and rough terrain - another reason it will suitably thrive in Lagos, Nigeria.

Though the YikeBike takes a little getting used to, the smaller rear wheel tracks easily.

 

The models

The YikeBike has two models - Model V and Model C.

The model V comes with an optional third wheel and weighs just under 30 lbs while the model C is the premium design. The Model C has a carbon fiber body, which makes it weigh less than the Model V at 25 lbs. The Model C only comes as a two-wheel option.

YikeBike costs a fortune

Sadly, the YikeBike cost a fortune and doesn’t come cheap. According to the market price, a YikeBikes start at N1,438,200 ($3,995) and can be more expensive if a premium model is been ordered for.

The cost of a YikeBike, a little over N1.4million, will readily buy a used car that might not need electricity for charging or get you wet during the raining season.
