Doubt it was an ebike, but he is 81: http://www.cnn.com/2012/01/13/showbiz/h ... ?hpt=hp_t3

Why is ebike spell corrected on this site?
Specialized Hardrock, still conventional.
Schwinn Avenue, still conventional.

Schwartzenegger
Position of spokesperson would require the ability to speak.

His name is Mr. Ed Benjamin.

He created the Light electric vehicle Association.

You can speak with him at Interbike if you like, just sign up to go to the LEVA Dinner...

You can read his work in the Electric Bicycle Industry report, that he writes with Mr. Frank Jamerson.

He actually has his finger on the pulse of the industry.

He also wrote a great article in EV industry news about illegal high speed E bikes, and the million dollar fines for selling them...

Hehe... Fun/old thread. My vote? Get to kids/youth.
Image

Somebuddy said once... who shall "inherit the earth"?

One way to "sell" the young is to maybe use an injured/crippled animal (kitten, etc) given human characteristics like speech. A survivor of a traffic "accident" where their parent did NOT survive. (I've read reports about many young, "urban" folks now disinclined to get into car ownership.)

Image

Hehe... Guess the thought here is to help KILL THE CAR (use of) more than to promote the E-bike. Watts this "E-bike industry spokesperson" to do? Promo ebikes? Or point out the follies of car ownership...

Hehe... I still say ya get `em addicted at an early age... :mrgreen:

Two words/phrases seen in Wikipedia...

Hero worship:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hero_worship

... and Saturday-morning cartoon:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saturday-morning_cartoon

So. Rather than having some "spendy" actor/actress as an "E-bike industry spokesperson"... (watt some kids might term an "Old Fart")... ya go "Fembot"-style, but with a whole family of cartoon characters (Mom-and-Pop - most kids "heroes"... AND kids all riding around living life better electrically). Like Mick-E:

Image

Then beyond the cartoons seen on ES TV etc ya gots yer "spin off" real toys... etc.

:mrgreen:
