5 Trends At The LA Ebike and Auto Show That May Change How We Move:
https://www.npr.org/sections/alltechcon ... ow-we-move

Includes:
All these cars and concepts were cool, but there wasn't some game-changing technology that was introduced to overtly change the world (car CEOs nowadays often ape the tech world bombast). Walk around the show and you'll find some technology and advances that aren't necessarily sexy but are changing the way we move around.
... AND:
My bicycle: Personal transport

As the big car companies' race toward the electric and self-driving future, there's growing competition for the personal transportation world. Think everything from skateboard to three-wheeler. There is intense demand for small personal conveyances. Companies such as Micro Kickboard, Razor USA, Propella Electric Bikes, and the foldable scooter Urb-B were some of the exhibitors.

Current motorcycles and mopeds use gas or diesel and often have lower fuel economy and high soot output which contributes to air pollution and greenhouse gases. These new electric alternatives could aid in cutting pollution in major cities around the globe.These companies are aiming at the what's called "the second commute" — the trip from the train station to the office, for example.

These new vehicles currently appeal to the young, but they could help provide mobility or ease transportation for older and disabled people. The hope of many in this mini-industry is that as cars go autonomous the roads will get safer for smaller vehicles.

Ways Commuters Can Ditch Cars in Favor of Bikes:

Starts:
Dear EarthTalk: What are some ways we can encourage more commuters to ditch their cars in favor of bikes? - Dennis Northrup, Avon, CT

Westport, CT - infoZine - E/The Environmental Magazine - One of the best things we can do as individuals to fight climate change is to reduce the number of miles we drive in our fossil-fuel powered cars. But replacing those car rides with more fuel-efficient options isn’t so easy, especially if you don’t live near a transit hub. Given all the new bike lane infrastructure across the country and the availability of battery-assisted bicycles to help you around, there’s never been a better time to ditch the car in favor of pedal power.

If you’ve only got a short way to go, your good old bike might work just fine. But if you need to get further than you’re comfortable riding under your own power, why not upgrade to something with battery assistance?
... and then the rest of the article goes on and on about bettery-electric traction for bikes. :mrgreen:

Maybe your heart says you want a motorcycle, but your brain says you’re way too scared to ride one.

Cue the Phantom Vision electric bike.

Designed after a vintage Indian Motorcycle, the Phantom Vision e-bike can travel up to 50 miles using pedal assist. If you don’t pedal while riding, the battery will get you about half that distance.

With a press of the pedal, this e-bike gets up and goes. It looks and feels fast.

Starts:
Former Belgian Formula 1 pilot Jérôme d’Ambrosio jumps onto the Swiss electric folding bike Voltitude by investing in the startup and become ‘global brand ambassador’ for the company. He will also reside within the advice committee.

“Electric bicycles will play a major role in the future”, d’Ambrosio says, “especially in the so called last mile. There is a lot of talk about the range of electric cars, but the electric bicycle has a lot of potential for the last 2 to 3 kilometers.”
:mrgreen:

Hehe... "a lot of potential for the last 2 to 3 kilometers"... May the gawds bless the clueless. :wink:

NIU sophomore Chad Wilson isn’t waiting until he graduates to take on the business world. Wilson and his business partner, Jordan Horwitz, are developing an electric cruiser motorcycle prototype they hope will eventually become a product on the market.

Includes:
In October, the pair won the CleanTech Award and Student Award at the EIGERlab FastPitch Competition. More than 30 entrepreneurs and innovators from four states pitched their ideas in the competition at the Rockford-based business incubator.
... and:
“I have two cars and don’t use either of them. I do all my commuting on the electric bike,” Horwitz said. “I’ve put 17,191 miles on it over the past two years. I drove from Vernon Hills to DeKalb to Sycamore without stopping to charge, and it took me two hours and nine minutes.”

Horwitz is using the data he collects from his bicycle motor to help him develop a 200-horsepower motorcycle that will be able to travel between 150 and 300 miles on a single charge. The planned motorcycle will bear a stronger resemblance to a Harley-Davidson than to a dirt bike, Wilson said.

“There are a lot of sporty dirt-bike style electric motorcycles out there,” he said. “We want to build a higher-end cruiser model that has improved safety, a larger body and is more comfortable to drive.”
Hehe... Marketing 101: Watt you DON'T DO is give yer company a "No Name" name... like "Electric Vehicle Technologies".

(Wiki:)
Digital Trends is a technology news, lifestyle, and information website that publishes news, reviews, guides, how-to articles, descriptive videos and podcasts about ebikes and technology and consumer electronics products. With offices in Portland, Oregon, and New York City, Digital Trends is operated by Designtechnica Corp., a media company that also publishes Digital Trends Español, a Spanish-language version of the site, and men's lifestyle site The Manual.
No matter the shape, turn any bicycle into an ebike with the Swytch kit :
https://www.digitaltrends.com/outdoors/ ... indiegogo/

Starts:
For many bike commuters, taking a shower at work is a necessity after making it through the commute. With an ebike, cyclists still get the exercise they want, but with a little assistance to keep the sweating down to a minimum. But such a luxury can be expensive, so one startup created Swytch, the removable ebike kit that can transform any kind of bicycle.

Swytch works by hiding an electric motor inside a specially built front wheel, available in all standard sizes as well as a for other sizes on request. The wheel is then linked up with a lightweight and removable power pack that sits between the handlebars like a basket. Inside the power pack is a battery, user display, controls, front light, and USB output for charging other devices.
Ends:
The Swytch ebike kit is available for pre-order on IndieGoGo starting at $299 for the base 25-mile kit. For those without a bike already, the campaign also offers a complete bike option with the 50-mile system for $599. For added convenience, a twist-grip or thumb throttle is also available as a $15 add-on.

A to B magazine started life as The Folder, the newsletter of the Folding Society in August 1993. Specialising in news and reviews of folding and separable bikes, the magazine went from strength to strength and is run today – as it has always been – by the Henshaw family.

In August 1997, with 1,200 subscribers worldwide, David Henshaw decided to float the magazine on its own. The new magazine had a new title ‘A to B’ and a new brief – to explore new ways of traveling from point A to point B.

Stigo Gets Bronze At The 2017 Spark Design Awards
("Stigo, the fastest folding electric vehicle, wins a bronze medal at the 2017 Spark Design Awards for its cool electric scooter (e-scooter)."):

Starts:
Stigo is not sitting idly on its seat with its last mile e-scooter solution. The company received a bronze award in Transport Design in the Spark Awards. The Spark Design Awards is highly coveted, as it is the only independent design awards program judged live and annually by new juries from the profession and related industries.
Gotta love those "low hanging fruit" awards... (NOT "gold"... not "silver", "platinum", etc... but "bronze". ie one step up from the "Stone Age".) Rumours are that judges found it hard to pedal... :wink:

Dunedin is the second-largest city in the South Island of New Zealand, and the principal city of the Otago region. Its name comes from Dùn Èideann, the Scottish Gaelic name for Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland.
Avantiplus has a passion for cycling:

Starts:
There are over 100 years in bicycle retail experience between the staff at Avantiplus Dunedin. And that’s just between owners Steve Dyet and Stew Thomas, and Greg Brinsdon in the workshop at the store at 110 Crawford St.
:lol:

Includes:
Avanti is an Auckland-based brand that was started in 1986. They produce mountain bikes, road bikes, kids’ bikes, and now electric bikes. The latter category of pedal­assisted bicycles is a rapidly growing area of the market. ‘‘It’s the big growth area globally,’’Steve says. ‘‘We have embraced them in New Zealand. It’s pretty hot in Europe, although they use them a different way. They’re commute only really, whereas here we want to commute and go and ride on the trails as well.’’ He says the ease of access to world-class trails is one driver, and also the fact that cycling is a passive non-jarring exercise that is great for people with joint problems, and those with only a few years left in their legs.
:)

... and:
Electric bikes can increase the length of someone’s cycling life, which is perfect for those who want to remain active in their mature years. ‘‘By and large we like to give things a go and we like to get out and about,’’ Steve says. ‘‘The biggest group buying electric bikes do so for wellbeing and health. They want to go and get some exercise, and also have an adventure, but not come home absolutely exhausted.’’
