The world's ''fastest'' electric bicycle is set to go on sale next month in London, with some hailing it the answer to lazy commuters' dreams. The push bike with an electric motor also has a ''rocket boost'' button for added speed during off-road riding. There are two versions, the A2B Metro and the A2B Hybrid, allowing the rider to motor along getting an added boost as they pedal. The batteries run for up to 20 miles and can be charged in about five hours.
