Electric Bike News Week of 12-13-10

Well things have been a little busy for me recently with my work on the e bike store guide and electric bike company guide.  I also have the Revolve Business Casual ebike and Hebb Electro Glide ebike in for testing and review.  So to summarize; my news posts have been slacking!  In any case, here is some news that has caught my eye.

As always I will continue to add cool e-bike news and happenings to this post through out the week.

If you want to add some news or a story about ebikes then please add them in the comments section at the end of this post.

And now the ebike news!

I really love hearing about these e-bike success stories.  Here is a man in Oklahoma City that is blind in one eye and doesn’t feel comfortable driving a car.  He recently received an electric bicycle from the Department of Rehabilitation Services to help him in his daily commute to work.   Checkout the video; (I just wish he was wearing a helmet and they showed him pedaling a little more 🙂 )

Check out this very stealth electric bike conversion kit that hides the motor in the seat tube of the bike and the battery in the seat bag.  Cool stuff!

WOW!  Check out this clean looking futuristic electric bike concept.  There is no chain.  Your pedal power generates electricity to power the rear hub motor.  Interesting….. 🙂
