The Ahmedabad based, Lightspeed Mobility team says, “We, as a team, wanted to create bikes that will not just ease commute, but make it an experience. Additionally, we wanted the bikes to be energy efficient and a companion to anyone wanting some good cardio. And that’s the thought that drove us toput together the two eBikes, GLYD and DRYFT.”
Ranganath Thota, Founder & CEO Fueladream says, “I think city commuters often ignore alternative means of transport. LightSpeede Bikes are a great investment for all those looking for energy and cost-effective means of commute.”
