ShareRoller is a briefcase-shaped DC motor capable of continuously powering a bicycle. The device attaches to the mounting bracket of the front wheel and a thumb throttle links the device to your fingertips. This new portable innovation helps enable a bicyclist to reach speeds of 18 mph without pedaling, making getting 20 miles across town a snap!

Guida launches the Kickstarter campaign for the ShareRoller on February 28, 2014. He hopes to raise $100,000 so that he can get the ShareRoller into production and supporters who donate $995 will walk away with their very own. A cheaper and greener alternative to taxis or rental cars, motorized shared bicycles may well revolutionize cities across the nation.
