Have you ever heard of Story Bikes? The company was founded by two UCSB graduates. The idea for their new company Story Bikes grew out of what they saw was a need for more attractive electric bicycles, all of the electronics are hidden inside the frame, along with a USB port so you can charge your phone or Bluetooth.
Story Bikes also has a philanthropic component, for every electric bike that is purchased, Story Bikes donates a standard bike to school children, nurses, and entrepreneurs in Africa who normally would not be able to attend school or get to work due to the distance.
