This is a quiz. What’s the biggest constraint for an e-bike? The answer is its battery.
Clearly if you’re off for a long day’s ride you can’t count on finding a convenient wall outlet to use your charger. Besides, who wants to carry that thing anyway?
But what if you could harness solar power, and do your recharging in a reasonable amount of time so you can get back on the road? Well, that’s the solution that Hi-Power Cycles of Chatsworth, California has come up with.
This is something new that I am trying. Everyday I come across cool electric bike stuff happening in the world and I want to share it with you. So I will be putting together one post a week just for electric bike news. I will still be doing other posts on ebike reviews, guides, videos, maintenance, etc. These news posts may be a combination of stuff that is currently happening as well as some info that is older news that I just stumble upon and want to share with you.
I will be adding links to this post through out the week, so stay tuned 🙂
And if you find something cool that you want to share with the Electric Bike Report community, please leave it in the comment section below.
If you would rather sit back and watch the highlights you can checkout electric bike news video.
