The Greek engineer built an electric bike in which it does not rain or blow for cycling.
The bike also has navigation and speakers for listening to music. The Greek news agency AMNA informed about it. This special means of transport crossed the streets of the northern Greek city of Kozani for the first time on Monday and attracted a lot of attention from people who did not know if it was a bicycle or a car.
The first Greek four-wheeled bicycle has handlebars and wheels like a bicycle, but also a door and a transparent roof and windows like a car. Reflectors, lights and rear-view mirrors are also available. It runs on a lithium battery, which can be recharged like an electric car and lasts an hour, or is recharged by stepping on the pedals.
The electric bike called Bike-1 was created by 50-year-old electrical engineer Dimitris Glumpos during the lockdown, which has been in force in Greece since November. Its aim was both to contribute to the ecological operation of cities, but also to bring greater comfort to cyclists so that it does not rain on them.
The cart was assembled by Glumpos, the father of two, on the terrace and in the living room, because the Greeks have had limited outdoor movement for several months due to the covid-19 pandemic. “My wife and children and I moved the furniture to the corner in the living room, and then I assembled my Bike-1 in the open,” a man who also lectures at the University of West Macedonia told AMNA.
The Greek “bicycle car” has seven speeds and can carry smaller luggage weighing up to 30 kilograms. The whole truck is 1.8 meters long, 90 centimeters wide and about 1.5 meters high. Its author is now focusing on improving the new vehicle, among other things, wants to reduce its weight, which is still about 120 kg.
