The Faraday Porteur, first spied at Oregon Manifest, is now available for purchase directly from the Faraday website. Available in classic white or British racing green, the only options are either a front rack or rear rack. This is an electric assist bike with a Gates belt drive, and an internal eight speed Shimano Alfine hub. The price of the Faraday bests most other electric bikes, and this is most definitely one of the better designs I’ve seen for an electric bike. I look forward to test riding a Faraday in hopes its handling is as good as its looks.
