We love the idiosyncratic and eccentric collection sold at Areaware, and have found that founder Noel Wiggins is as eccentric as his shop. I caught him outside ICFF among the smoking exhibitors, sneaking out early on his "urban assault vehicle."
It's got 500 Watts of power front and rear, running on lithium polymer batteries. He added an Xtracycle frame and can carry up to two passengers. A front suspension takes care of the potholes.
Areaware celebrated its fifth birthday that evening; they built a lovely cake. Congratulations to Laura and Noel.
