The eBike’s continue to grow in popularity. Heck, who wouldn’t prefer a short bike commute where you don’t show up totally sweaty. When it comes to eBikes it is usually a battle over specs, price, weight, distance, size, etc… Trying to check every box is quite difficult. The folks at ElectroBike are shooting for size and weight as the two most important items. The ElectroBike Air-33 comes in two models with the main difference being the battery capacity: Air-33 – 36V, 8Ah lithium-ion battery. 25-mile...

We have mixed feelings about the YikeBike at our offices, some people think it is lame (like the Segway) and some people really want one.  I will not make a decision either way at this time, will wait for more users to put some miles on them first.  Well, either way, the YikeBike...

Designed and constructed in Christchurch New Zealand, the YikeBike is the worlds smallest, lightest electric folding bicycle at about 22lbs.  The YikeBike is available for pre-orders and expects to ship in 2010.  The bike folds up (in about 15 seconds) and is small enough to fit into a decent sized carrying case. ...

Aston Martin Brough Superior AMB 001 Motorcycle Right Side

What the heck is going on? Aston Martin teamed up with Brough Superior to make a motorcycle? Harley Davidson is making e-bikes? Time to short some stocks. Read on for a bit more on this craziness. (more…)

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...

Sure this e-bike looks modern, even a bit strange. Yes it folds up pretty small. It also has a color LCD screen to control resistance and acceleration. There is plenty of aluminum, lithium-ion, and carbon fiber. Still not impressed? How about the fact that the pedals aren’t attached to a chain. In fact the pedals don’t do anything for propulsion at all. The pedals are basically attached to a generator and are used to recharge the battery. Crazy right? Sounds like a good idea until you hit a hill and realize that if the electric...

There are plenty of “e-bikes” running around these days. Most aren’t more than a traditional bike with a motor, battery, and throttle installed. Think of the latest wildly successful IndieGogo Storm Electric Bike campaign. Time will tell how that controversial bike will play out, but I’m not going into that here. I was lucky enough to spend a few...

A unique bike shop in San Francisco, Rock The Bike, had one of their bikes stolen recently.  The bike is named Mundo 500 which means "heavy bike".  The Mundo 500, like the bike shop, is unique in that it is a work bike.  In other words it can be used to generate electric power...

The Schwinn 240 Recumbent Exercise Bike is one of the best we have reviewed, especially considering the $450 price tag.  Quit paying for the gym you haven't been going to, and spend the money on a bike you can ride at home (in front of the TV?).  We have tried recumbent...
