Electric Bicycles...


Andrew Gondzur from St. Louis, MO has installed a kit that added a rechargeable electric motor to his old bike. With the twist of his handlebar he can go from pedaling to a nice boost of "motorized help." "'I can, go farther and faster than I would if I were just pedaling," he says, which is why Andrew now takes his bike, not his car, to the post office, the library, his childrens's schools, and the grocery store. "Why take 5,000 pounds of car and burn expensive gas to get one thing you forgot at the supermarker? Now I leave my car at home." Its the equivalent to a hybrid car, no idling, both pedaling and electric at your fingerprints, literally.

there wasn't a picture to go with the article, I would be curious to see what it looks like and how big the electric powered motor (?) is.

Electric Bicycles and Electric Scooters

This is an excellent blog for electric bicycles. There are not too many around like this. Thanks for making this such an interesting subject. Oh, by the way, Wired Magazine has a great article on hybrid cars this month. (Jan 2008 issue).

God Bless,
