Have you ever found yourself unexpectedly riding your bike at night with a front light that is out of battery power or missing altogether? German bike manufacturer Silverback has resolved this by building energy generation into their new series of bikes named the Starke. With a small front hub dynamo built into the front wheel, this electric generator apparently creates enough power to run the front and back light and the USB port situated in the handle bars can simultaneously charge your iPhone or GPS as you pedal away. We haven't even mentioned that the bike itself, outside of all the new techy advantages is a pretty sweet looking ride and sleeker looking than you would imagine for all that it is offering.
