If you’re looking for an e-bike experience without ditching your favorite two-wheeler, the CLIP ($400) is for you. It’s a friction-drive motor that easily attaches to the front wheel of your bike, its roller helping to rotate the wheel and thus speed you around faster than you can pedal. Though it weighs less than 10 lb., the CLIP can help riders reach speeds of up to 15 m.p.h., and its range, 10 to 15 miles, is long enough to get most commuters to and from the office, or weekend riders across town and back. It’s also removable, so you can charge it under your desk or at your destination. —Patrick Lucas Austin
