Electric bikes a blast from the past:

Starts:
A former fly-in, fly-out worker based in Bunbury has left his job to concentrate on his passion for designing vintage-style electric bikes, believed to be the first designed in WA.

Conrad Lovett and his wife Krystle are the brains behind Michael Blast, a company that designs street legal electric bikes with an edge.

Summit Shows Huge Potential for Light Electric Vehicles:
http://www.bike-eu.com/shows-events/nie ... s-10132249

Starts:
ROTTERDAM, the Netherlands – End of November, some 120 delegates gathered in Rotterdam for the second Light Electric Vehicle Summit (LEVS). There were some 40 presentations on a wide range of subjects and vehicles, from monowheels, over speed pedelecs up to micro cars.
hehe... "over speed" pedelecs... :mrgreen:

Ends:
“Not a means of transport for commuting”

Rotthier’s presentation was met with a reaction from Burkhard Stork, director of the ADFC. It left many of the LEVS delegates baffled. The director of ADFC, the EU’s largest cyclists’ association, stated with a great deal of verve: “Speed pedelecs are toys for white boys, not a means of transport for commuting. They do not add anything to sustainable transport.” To which Bram Rotthier just noted that so far his research had provided evidence to the contrary.
:shock: :roll: :twisted: :mrgreen: "toys for white boys"... and, Q: "The difference between men and boys"?

A: The price of their toys. :twisted: :lol:

Do bike-share programs make sense for the Jersey Shore?:
https://whyy.org/articles/bike-share-pr ... sey-shore/

Starts:
Biking and the Jersey Shore go together like peanut butter and jelly, salt and pepper, boardwalk fries and indigestion. But until recently, there have only been two main options for getting a cycling fix while on vacation — you either lug a bike from home, or you rent one after you get here.
Includes:
Possible benefits from bike-sharing

There’s reason to believe Jersey Shore-goers might be especially willing to ditch their vehicles for a more sustainable mode of transportation. First, there are the myriad health benefits — many programs have built-in health-tracking devices, so users get calorie burn updates and other data for each trip. Secondly, people along the coast are more likely to believe in man-made climate change, research shows, since they’ve got a front-row seat to sea-level rise. And since tailpipe emissions constitute 27 percent of greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S., cars are increasingly becoming transport non grata. Bike-share proprietors may be able to capitalize on this environmental awareness. The plan at Shore Bike Share LLC, for example, is to incorporate solar-powered electric bikes and locks so “the footprint is zero,” Sacco said.

The California Aggie provides an effective platform for local businesses, campus affiliates and national advertisers to reach thousands of students, staff and faculty through our weekly printed newspaper and dynamic website.

The Aggie newspaper publishes weekly every Thursday during the academic year, with special publications for the summer months.

Bike-share system to launch in Sacramento, Davis in 2018:
https://theaggie.org/2017/12/07/bike-sh ... avis-2018/

Starts:
Social Bikes, SACOG, cities of Davis, Sacramento, West Sacramento partner to promote bike sharing

A partnership between Social Bicycles (SoBi), a privately owned bike technology company, the Sacramento Area Council of Governments and the cities of Davis, Sacramento and West Sacramento will establish a bike-sharing system in the Sacramento and Davis areas in 2018.

Bike sharing is a public service that allows for short-term bicycle rental in a geographic area. To be a part of the system, users create SoBi accounts and then reserve and unlock bikes using the mobile app or a web browser. SoBi’s bikes have GPS technology and electronic locks, which allow the company to track distance, time and payment. SoBi also offers bikes that have electric pedal-assist, which enables users to pedal up to 20 miles per hour with the help of a motor.
... includes:
“As to whether or not we can expect that deadline, I’m not personally committed to it just because of the complexity of it all,” Zavala said. “The project management team has come together and found some of the hotter spots throughout the city of Davis and UC Davis. But what it comes down to is, if they’re electric assist bikes, where are you going to be able to plug in? It’s really within the context of the existing electrical infrastructure, how much money we would want to spend to trench out and expand that infrastructure and then where the bikes would be most useful.”
:roll:

... and:
“Social Bicycles is really leading on making the business model work — what we’re doing is making sure it’s something we can have in the ground safely — to the extent that we need to partner with Social Bicycles, we’re working really closely with them,” Reed said. “There’s a lot that needs to happen for a bike-share system to get in the ground and get working: they need permits, they need to make sure they have space on the sidewalk for their docks for the electric bikes and their chargers. Over time the project has shifted, SoBi is really taking charge, taking the lead and taking the risk, and we as local governments are really partnering with them.”
... ands:
“There are disagreements about where to place the bikes, [and] there are concerns about the electric bikes because it is still a very, very new type of bike with a vast majority of the population,” Zavala said. “Everyone wants this to work, so any kind of conflict that has popped up has been very quickly solved or placated at the very least.”

Social Bicycles could not be reached for comment.
HUH??? I've led such a sheltered life. I guess. :lol:

Scientific Research Proves: 8-Year Warranty on E-Bike Batteries Possible:
http://www.bike-eu.com/home/nieuws/2017 ... e-10132255

Starts:
MARYLAND, USA – CALCE, the electronics/lithium-ion test laboratory of the University of Maryland, USA, conducted a study and practical tests on lithium-ion cells. They proved that 8-year warranty terms for e-bike batteries are possible by reducing charge/discharge levels. For making that possible automatically an universal ‘Battery Saver’ is being developed.
BTW... ESB "Search found 0 matches: CALCE".

Hehe... "reducing discharge levels"... :mrgreen: Article uses odd terminology... like "winter storage"?

Background:

Don DiCostanzo is Co-Founder of Pedego Electric Bikes. After 30 years in the automotive world, Don started an electric bicycle shop in Newport Beach, California. This was a labor of love. Over time, he developed an interest in electric cycling and tried to find quality electric bikes for his bicycle shop. His frustration with existing suppliers led him to contact his friend and future Pedego partner Terry Sherry. In 2008, the two men co-founded Pedego Electric Bikes, where quality, innovation, and customer service are among the top core values of the company.

The Chennai-based two-wheeler maker has pumped in around Rs 5 crore for acquiring 6,750 equity shares of Ultraviolette, according to its stock exchange filing. TVS has disclosed nothing more than saying that it is a "strategic investment" on their part.

Make Our Planet Great Again: France awards grants to anti-Trump climate change scientists:
https://www.breakingnews.ie/world/make- ... 18266.html

Starts:
Eighteen climate scientists from the US and elsewhere have hit the jackpot as French President Emmanuel Macron awarded millions of euros in grants to relocate to France for the rest of Donald Trump's presidential term.

The "Make Our Planet Great Again" grants - a nod to Mr Trump's "Make America Great Again" campaign slogan - are part of Mr Macron's efforts to counter his US counterpart on climate change.

Mr Macron announced a contest for the projects in June, hours after Mr Trump declared he would withdraw the US from the Paris climate accord.

More than 5,000 people from about 100 countries expressed interest in the grants. A majority of the applicants - and 13 of the 18 winners - were US-based researchers.

California Cities to Launch Biggest Electric Bike-Share System in U.S.:
https://nextcity.org/daily/entry/califo ... -system-us

Includes:
That will soon change, however. After six years of discussions and planning, Davis, Sacramento and the city of West Sacramento are finally getting a bike-share system in May 2018. They are making up for lost time by jumping straight to the next iteration of shared bicycles: electric bikes. The Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG), and cities of Davis, Sacramento and West Sacramento have been working with private bike-share company Social Bicycles (SoBi) to plan the system. SoBi will finance, own and operate the system when it launches.
Hehe... "the next iteration of shared bicycles: electric bikes"... :mrgreen:
