Let me start off by saying this strange little electric folding bicycle isn’t going to replace your main bike. The JupiterBike 2.0 is built for extreme portability and mobility, for example; in the trunk of your car, your airplane, boat, or RV. The Jupiter Electric Folding Bike can go 15-mph and has a range of 10-miles on a single charge. Not to shabby for something that can find in a backpack. More pictures and video of the JupiterBike 2.0 after the break. ...

Fat tire bikes are pretty cool but awfully tough to get up the mountain with all of that rolling resistance. Sure, you could electrify the bike and make the rear wheel assist with the climb, but the folks at Easy Motion made an AWD e-bike. The Easy Motion Evo AWD Big Bud Pro + ($3,499) has added a 350-watt rear hub motor and a 250-watt hub motor up front to their 2-wheel drive fat bike. “The drive system has four modes. You can run with 100 percent front or back wheel if you like, set it to AWD which proportions power between the...

Coast Cycles Buzzraw Stealth E1000 Electric Bike 37

A throwback bike of yesteryear that could pass itself off as just a pedal bike. It is a pedal bike, but it happens to have 1000-watts of juice and a Bafang mid-drive motor. That just means that this little stealth black electric bike can hit 37-mph! The Coast Cycles Buzzraw E1000 will set you back about $3,300, but hey… life is short. Heck, you could even grow a man-pony like the guy on the bike. On second thought, don’t grow a man-pony. (more…)

Sur-Ron_Electric_Off-Road_Bike_7

Electric bikes continue to evolve and find their way. From throttle controlled to pedal assisted there is something for everyone. Price points, batteries, motors, and component options mean that prices are all over the price. The Sur-Ron (LightBee) is just $3,500. If you have been following the electric dirt bike market you know that this price is pretty hard to beat There is a $150 pedal option, but is more of an electric motorcycle aimed squarely at the 80cc dirt bikes.

The Sur Ron is perfect for having a blast while not assaulting your ears or annoying your neighbors. It makes the normal “electric” noises but compared to a two-stroke motorcycle it is positively whisper quiet. The Sur-Ron weighs in at just 110 lbs, has a 6-kW (8 hp) mid-drive axial-flux motor, 200 Nm of torque at the rear wheel, and a single-speed powertrain.

The battery pack is removable (and lockable) and is made up of 176 Panasonic 18650 cells for a total of 33 Ah at 60 volts. Wheels are 19-inches with four-piston hydraulic brakes with Intersect TR shocks and Fastace forks. These parts are more like heavy duty mountain bike parts than actual dirt bike parts but they do help to keep weight down. Speaking of weight, the frame is a forged aluminum cradle style that weighs 17.2 lbs.

A Swedish based EV company named Cake has come out with their first product, this ugly minimalist designed electric bike – the Kalk. I can’t get over the name. “I’m gonna grab my Kalk and head home, see ya’ll tomorrow.” The Cake Kalk ($14,000) is built for on and off-road riding and can hit 50 MPH with a range of 50-miles. In staying with the “50” theme, they are limiting the initial production run to 50 units. ...

Why not get your bikes LED head light to do some double duty as an HD camera. That is the idea behind the Cycliq Fly12 (and the Fly6 rear bike camera). The Cycliq Fly12 ($299) sports a 1080P camera with a 10-hour battery life, a built-in bike alarm, Strava integration, an LED 400 lumen light, and it is even weatherproof.    ...

The OTTOLOCK is a clever take on the age old problem of what bike lock should I use. You can go with the super heavy and slightly more secure locks but you have to lug that weight around with you. And to be fair, all locks, yes all locks, can be compromised rather quickly with the right tools. Think angle grinders, plasma cutters, bolt cutters and the like. If you leave a nice bike locked overnight in the urban jungle it will most likely not make it through the night regardless of your locking solution. You get the point. The OTTOLOCK...

This pretty clever product turn just about any bicycle into an e-bike in about 60-seconds. Simply swap out the front tire with the GeoOrbital Wheel ($995) and you are ready to go. The GeoOrbital Wheel uses a remote throttle for control and comes in a 700c (28in/29in) or 26in size. It is powered by a 500W motor and allows riders to hit about 20 mph. Good news, it is made in USA, Massachusetts to be exact. Bad news, it cost as much as a complete electric bike.    ...

E-bikes continue to grow in popularity. Not surprising. They are quiet, fun to ride, and economical for short commutes. Well this retro chopper e-bike looks like it belongs in California but is actually made in Germany. So what makes this Ruffian e-Bike tick? Well, it starts off with a Bosch 500-Wh battery pack (hidden inside the powder coated tank), an eight-speed hub gearbox from Shimano, hydraulic brakes, 26-inch wheels, and a Bosch 250W pedal-assisted motor. All of this weighs 73-lbs and has a range of 56-miles with a 3.5-hour charge...
