http://techcrunch.com – FlyKly Smart Wheel is a Kickstarter project that wants to turn your boring old pedal bike into a sneakily pedal-assisted electro-bike by sticking an electric motor in the back wheel. Or, more specifically, by replacing your old geared (or non-geared) back wheel with its Smart Wheel, and adding an app into the mix to control the speed.

FlyKly’s N.Y.-based creators say the Smart Wheel is compatible with “practically any bicycle that can fit a 29″ or a 26& (IT news)
