Make any bike electric with this wheel

Make any bike electric with this wheel

With many looking to transportation alternatives, bicycles have grown in popularity. But because of the effort needed to cover large distances, electronic bikes have become a hot-selling item. A new Kickstarter product, the GeoOrbital Wheel, plants an electric motor into an easily installed front wheel, making almost any bicycle electric.

    *make any wallet disappear with this weel*

  2. Are there any issues if you are pedaling faster than the motor is going? Resistance? Motor wear? Or will it assist in going faster?

  3. ugly as hell!

  4. It costs $799… for now.

  5. It’s Msy 2019 and ad
    After many reviews I’m like everyone else confused. To me seems really slow or almost useless on a heal, they say you can pedal some say pedal is not an option so which is it? Some argue about length and longivility please for a $1K please be more specific.

  6. I 10/10 would buy this. If it wasn’t almost a thousand dollars

  7. Ruppee

  8. How do you control the throttle?

    Wow really impressive by the way you people present your innovation really go green,the videos you present making me to think in a best way and shown me a way with uniqueness in you.Thank you for the video and i am happy to congratulate the idea generator ie..individual was great.

  11. I’m just a little concerned about the placement of this motorised wheel since people can steal the front wheel very easily. Could they have made a rear wheel version instead so that people won’t have the tendency to steal it as much?

    overrated kit,

  13. Here it says $699 whereas in geo orbital website it says $960 ,, daamn

  14. I am poor pls give it free to me 😎😎😎😎

  15. will the battery recharge while coasting downhill? and for braking?

  16. that wheel cost more than most electric set ups with a new bike included ,,,,,hipster shit

  17. First at all, the Prize is not reasonable, then you will lost true purpose of cycling is SPORT!!!… That can’t make you more healthy because, all you do is sit on the bicycle and operate… it is same as bike or hoverboard just in different form. Therefore, it is not necessary to use it, and that can’t be called sport anymore.

  18. But the price defeats the purpose of the product… for that price I COULD get an entire e-bike.

    That front wheel won’t eat shocks.

  20. Do you have in uk and how much cost ?

  21. i saw a similar thing, a small electric motor that powers the rear wheel and it connects to any bike.

    But nothing ever came out of it and neither did this

  22. How would you start the device while riding it?

  23. Stephen Schlickman January 6, 2021 @ 11:18 pm

    Has this wheel been tested for use on mountain roads and trails? I would think that would be the best use of it. Flat urban riding doesn’t require e-power assist. Does it boost your speed when you are pedaling? If so, can you vary the power of the boost to lessen or increase battery consumption?

  24. Or you could just buy an electric motor

    Onde fazer o pedido de compras e parcelar?

  26. Way tooooooooooo expensive .. Seriously

    Online kahan se mangi

  28. This would be a great thing in the Texas, but first the politician need to change the bike laws in Texas to make it a lot more safer to be on a bicycle in Texas. No dedicated bike lanes and drivers get angry when you take up a lane and they will run you over.

  29. In Canada it would be CAD$1,000 plus 13% HST. Novel idea, with more weight on the front than in most other converted electric bikes. Worth checking out.

  30. great idea , but easily stolen

  31. poderiam me dize se esas Rodas darim serto em cadeiras de Rodas

  32. How can I have one

  33. Where are from I purchase this wheel and its price please tell

  34. I don`t understand the concept here. I am a high millage biker myself and use my bike because i enjoy the rides even in rain and deep sun. Why would a ridder want to take up such wheels? The whole point is to get fit and exercise. ! Perhaps it could be an idea for those who are injured or for older people but i think if they are weak it might cause more trauma if things go bad? In general the concept is lost i don`t understand. Full Stop.

    Ma quanto costa? Italy

  36. This looks to be more a more complicated design than Superpedestrian’s copenhagen wheel, which is already on sale. The electrified bike wheel concept isn’t new and has been around for at least 7 years.

  37. This is why people can’t lose weight.

  38. What about side walk and bumpy roads
    Would it handle shock?

  39. No electric fo me my legs are my gears.. 😉

  40. anjali shejwalkar January 6, 2021 @ 11:37 pm

    Great idea! Manufacture that in India to reduce the cost! With rise in petrol prices more Indian people will be interested!

  41. watch this product fail like those electronic scooters

  42. I may consider buying one after everyone elses have exploded due to cheap battery issues and they fix that.. Also assuming the price comes down to something I wouldn’t mind so much if it were stolen.

  43. @0:52 mass ave bridge

  44. Great idea! Now that is something I want big time!

  45. Tech insider: make any bike electric…
    Me: I have disk brakes???

  46. Hi, where can I buy it in Portugal?

  47. Edulamudi Veera Raju January 6, 2021 @ 11:45 pm

    How much cost of the bicycle wheel retail Indian prices


  49. How to buying this wheel

  50. I hate it when the cost to buy something innovative is very high.

    What’s the point in innovation for the better if people can’t afford it anyway?
