Electro Mechanical Bicycle 

Bicycles are the most fit and energy efficient ways to travel. Though their range may be short, they require no fuel as they run on human energy. With this at its root, the electro mechanical bicycle uses a flywheel which rotates at high speed and gains momentum. The dynamo attached to the flywheel in turn, generates electricity and stores it in a battery. This energy from the battery can be used later by the rider while the battery itself can be detached to power LED lights. The bicycle is light weight and uses virtually no fuel. It can be a trendy eco-bicycle for urban areas or a helpful way to commute in rural areas.
