Fort Myers and Cape Coral Florida Weekly is your leading source for local news, business along with arts and entertainment.
(Wiki:)
Fort Myers is the county seat and commercial center of Lee County, Florida, United States. It has grown rapidly in recent years. As of the 2010 census, the city population was 62,298 and in 2016 was estimated at 77,146.

Fort Myers is a gateway to the Southwest Florida region and a major tourist destination within Florida. The winter estates of Thomas Edison ("Seminole Lodge") and Henry Ford ("The Mangoes") are major attractions.
New town, new home, new car…
("Builders expanding the list of reasons to “Make the Move” to Babcock Ranch"):
https://fortmyers.floridaweekly.com/art ... e-new-car/

Starts:
Pre-construction incentives are driving rapid sales for homebuilders at Babcock Ranch. More than a dozen new contracts have been signed since pre-sales opened in early November for two new neighorhoods. Lennar’s twin-villas starting at prices in the $190s and single family homes by both Lennar and Pulte from the low $200s are meeting pent-up demand among both young families and empty nesters. All Babcock Ranch builders are getting involved with attractive “Make the Move” offers to drive sales in advance of the official grand opening of the solar-powered town next March.
Includes:
Florida Lifestyle led off its preconstruction push in early November with the offer of an innovative “Pedelec” electric assist bicycle to anyone who contracts for construction of a new home before the end of 2017.

Hehe... Buy any "cheap" batteries Made in China lately? Watt... ANOTHER fire?? Better blame it on ebike batteries... :wink:

Five killed, 8 injured in China house fire :
http://www.thehindu.com/news/internatio ... 571296.ece

Starts:
Five people were killed and eight others injured when a residential building caught fire in Beijing’s Chaoyang district early on Wednesday.

The fire broke out at a village house in Shibalidian Township, the fire department said. The injured were taken to hospital, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.

The fire was triggered by flames from an electric bicycle, the fire department said.
... and comes w/a pic of a burning "high rise" building:

... captioned:
There has been a spurt in fire accidents in China in recent times. In this December 10, 2017 photo, a huge blaze is seen engulfing a 16-storey wooden tower -- the tallest of its kind -- at Jiulong Town in Deyang, Sichuan Province. The fiery spree continued on Wednesday when five people were killed and eight others injured in a residential building inferno in Beijing’s Chaoyang district early in the day. | Photo Credit: Getty Images
... whereas the "huge blaze is seen engulfing a 16-storey wooden tower" a few daze ago, as reported in the media:
https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/as ... ts-9490956
SICHUAN: A 16-storey Buddhist pagoda in southwestern China was destroyed by a massive fire on Sunday (Dec 10) afternoon.

The wooden pagoda - reportedly the tallest in Asia - along with a prayer hall were seen engulfed in flames on videos circulating around social media.
... and:
According to local news outlet People's Daily Online, the fire started from the main hall of the Nine Dragons Monastery.
... and:
The pagoda had been undergoing renovations since 2010, after the original structure dating back to the 16th century was destroyed during a major earthquake in May 2008, CCTV reported.
... and that basically the pagoda fire had nothing to do with any "ebike battery". :roll:

Hehe... ESB "Search found 46 matches: Energica"... again:

Image

Electric MotoGP class to race the Energica Ego in 2019:
https://newatlas.com/motogp-electric-mo ... rna/52598/

Starts:
MotoGP will get its own electric motorcycle class for 2019 in the form of a single make Moto-e race based on production streetbikes. And now we know what the bikes will be based on: the Energica Ego, a 145-horsepower, 570-lb Italian sports machine capable of 150 mph.
Includes:
The US$25,000 Energica Ego is far from the fastest electric motorcycle going around. Its 145-horsepower, 147 lb-ft motor is good for a top speed around 240 km/h (150 mph) in road trim, which pales in comparison to, for example, Lightning's LS-218 superbike, which was measured years ago at 218 miles per hour, and has gained a substantial amount of power in the interim.

But the Lightning is proving slow to manufacture and expensive to sell, coming in around US$38,000, and the company has not yet managed to set up an international dealership network. Energica has done substantially better getting a product out there, with a growing list of dealerships across Europe, Scandinavia, Israel and both coasts of the United States.
Hehe... Folks STILL measuring stuff in "how many horses can pull it"... steada WATTS.

And NOT mentioning whether that power is CONTINUOUS or PEAK. :lol:

The Taipei Times is the only printed daily English-language newspaper in Taiwan...
Export prices to boost bicycle industry
("ENTRY BARRIERS:The association said that premiums for high-end bicycle products help local manufacturers compete with Chinese peers that produce cheaper models"):
http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/biz/arc ... 2003683917

Starts:
The Taiwan Bicycle Exporters’ Association yesterday voiced optimism about the outlook of the nation’s bicycle manufacturing industry next year, given an upward trend in the average selling price of bike exports.

In the first 10 months of this year, the average selling price of an exported bicycle was US$540.76, a 10.5 percent increase from US$489.53 in the same period last year, data compiled by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA, 外貿協會) showed.

The unit price reflects the competitiveness of Taiwanese bicycle manufacturers, association secretary-general Gina Chang (張蕙娟) told reporters after a news conference, adding that the decline in bike export numbers might be short term.

From January to October, the nation’s exports of nonelectric bicycles totaled US$1.067 billion, a 13.16 percent decrease from US$1.228 billion in the same period last year, with overseas shipments falling 21.33 percent to 1.97 million units, TAITRA data showed.

Sales over that period for the nation’s largest bicycle maker, Giant Manufacturing Co Ltd (巨大機械), dropped 4.82 percent year-on-year to NT$46.15 billion (US$1.54 billion), while Merida Industry Co’s (美利達) revenue fell 3.39 percent to NT$18.49 billion, the companies’ filings with the Taiwan Stock Exchange showed.
SO SAD... :cry:

Includes:
Taiwan’s electric bicycle exports in the first 10 months totaled US$196 million, a 70.83 percent surge from US$115 million a year earlier, while bicycle component shipments rose 11.89 percent year-on-year from US$873 million to US$977 million, TAITRA data showed.

Eyeing long-term potential in the electric bicycle market, Giant aims to lift its revenue contribution from electric bikes to 10 percent by 2022, compared with last year’s 7 percent, company officials said earlier this year.
WATT??? :shock:

Bicycle Tours Speed Up for the Slow and Fast:
http://www.travelmarketreport.com/artic ... w-and-Fast

Starts:
Cycling tours tap into three growing trends in travel, a perfect confluence that can enrich a travel agent’s group business.

The ground-level view of a bicycling tour allows travelers to immerse themselves in the local culture and flavor of a destination, exposing them to spontaneous moments that could not be experienced on a bus, a train or driving a car. These tours also provide deepened group engagement with other travelers. And finally, they allow travelers to exercise and pursue their healthy living goals.
Includes:
For recreational riders, these types of offerings “give a person the chance to maybe even take a spouse who isn’t very active. They might even be able to cycle on one of the routes or legs. Or they might even take an e-bike.
:shock:

... and:
E-bike’s have an electric gearbox that helps power the bicycle if the rider cannot propel it entirely on their own.
Gosh! ... an "electric gearbox"? (Must investigate...) :lol:

On ya bike: growing demand for electric bikes:
http://www.smh.com.au/small-business/tr ... 03dxc.html

Starts:
The future zipped past Nathan Reizer one day while he was sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic on busy St Kilda Road, Melbourne.

"The traffic was backed up forever and this thing whizzed past us," he recalls.
Hehe... (from the folks who like going "zip" and "whiz"...) :lol:

Includes:
The blur on two wheels was just the ticket for Reizer and business partner Baron Katrinski. The pair were looking to invest into a new business and through research, found electric bikes, or e-bikes, were hugely popular across Asia and Europe. Yet hardly any bike retailers were selling them in Australia.
... watt may sound familiar to some in the Americas. :mrgreen:

... and:
Queensland's Daniel Whiting, director of manufacturer and wholesaler VelectriX, began selling bikes to pizza chain Domino's three years ago. This year his business developed a specialised cargo bike to carry 75kg in addition to the weight of the Domino's delivery rider. In a deal worth $120,000, VelectriX sold 50 bikes to Domino's franchisees on the Gold Coast.
:shock: 8) :mrgreen:

goes on:
Company turnover was $500,000 last year and this year it's on track to reach $3 million.

If the new E Cargo bike is up to scratch, Whiting says his business could be supplying bikes to Domino's franchisees around the nation.

"There's 780 stores, and they are buying three to four bikes a store, so you're looking at hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of business," he says.
:shock: 8)

... and:
As road use and customs regulations adapted, Australia's e-bike market has started to take off. Bourke estimates between 10,000 and 15,000 were imported into Australia this year compared to half that number in 2016.
(As usual, no word re those sneaky DIY folks...) :lol:

Remember the unbridled joy you felt once you learned to ride a bike? The feeling of freedom, fresh air and blood pumping through your veins all at once?

Many adult cyclists never lost that feeling, and e-bikes are making bicycling accessible again to those not fit enough to commute to work, the grocery store or an event downtown. E-bikes also are making cycling interesting to those who turned their backs on their bikes once they got car keys but now see how much more efficient their summer commute could be.

Getting more people out of cars and on two wheels is a good thing for the environment and for physical fitness, and the e-bike trend may encourage people to get back behind bicycle bars.

Give a Shift – The Future of Motorcycling Deliberated at Long Beach Roundtable:
https://www.aimag.com/give-a-shift-the- ... oundtable/

Starts:
The future of motorcycling has been a hot topic lately. Motorcycle sales are down, ridership has been declining, and the enthusiasm for motorcycles as a whole has been waning. The need to foster the next generation of riders was directly addressed by 25 motorcycle industry professionals and representatives during a meeting of minds November 16 in Long Beach, California, prior to the opening of the first International Motorcycle Show of 2017-18. The meeting was organized by industry insider Robert Pandya, a passionate motorcycling advocate many know from his tenure as External Relations Manager for the Indian and Victory brands. The meeting, dubbed the “Give a Shift” roundtable, provided great insight into the state of the motorcycle industry as well as discussing ways to ensure its sustainability for future generations.

Here is a detailed summary of the roundtable discussion courtesy of Robert Pandya. – AIM
(Watt then proceeds to use the word "electric" five times... hehe) including:
Likewise the industry’s focus on Boomers in the prior decades has taken focus off of Generation X, the cross-over generation that grew up analogue but introduced the world to the internet and mobile working. A large number of young Gen X-ers (appx 52-45 year olds) are able to work remotely and are re-incorporating outdoor adventure into their lives, with a significant indicator being the increase in recreational vehicle sales to 40-50 year olds. In addition, technology has given rise to a mobile lifestyle such as the #vanlife and remote working movement. Both of these situations indicate an opportunity for electric bicycles, e-cycles, and traditional small motorcycles that can be a catalyst for Gen X and their offspring to choose to ride, or promoting motorcycling as another addition to their self-defined lifestyle.
Likewise, it is increasingly critical for electric motorcycles to find a comfortable home within our business. Electric bicycles are quickly evolving into very capable vehicles that eclipse the on-road performance of small scooters and mopeds, and deliver a comfortable and familiar form-factor to non-motorcyclists. They are relatively unregulated, unlicensed, and becoming far more acceptable in increasingly dense urban and suburban population centers. With the global scale of the bicycle industry, there will undoubtedly be stiffer competition and rapid increases in technology and reduction in costs, especially as battery technology breaks through and costs lower. However, if moto-branded and treated as a part of our community (as traditional mopeds once were) their growth can increase motorcycling participation as riding radius is increased.
[COUGH COUGH] ... OR, it is increasingly critical for electric "motorcycle" businesses to find a comfortable home in an increasingly urban ("crowded", operating at "slower" speeds over "shorter" distances...), 21st-Century world. :wink:

Or die off. Like the horseless carriage industry is doing. :mrgreen: ... and the horse-drawn carriage industry did before that.

Electric Two Foraying into Emerging Economies 2017-2025:
https://www.openpr.com/news/858794/Elec ... -2025.html

Starts:
Electric two wheelers are increasing becoming popular in important urban transport in various regions of the globe. It ranges from electric bicycle to electric scooters and electric motorcycles. These vehicles are light weight and can maneuver easily through congested streets. These vehicles can be charged easily with the electrical outlet and often have a removable or replaceable battery which also provide the convenience of charging indoors.

Increasing demand for favorable regulatory climate in interest of regulating the pollution and environmental conservation is expected to drive the electric two wheeler demand over the forecast period. The existence of stringent regulatory norms has supported the adoption of clean energy by improving the air quality and reducing the green-house gas emissions thereby reducing the dependence on the crude oil. Government across the globe are focusing towards providing subsidies and incentives to the OEMs and customers in order to lower the electric two wheelers deployment barriers.

The Sheffield Telegraph is a weekly newspaper published in Sheffield, England. Founded in 1855 as the Sheffield Daily Telegraph, it became known as the Sheffield Telegraph in 1938.
... and:
Sheffield is a city and metropolitan borough in South Yorkshire, England. Historically part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, its name derives from the River Sheaf, which runs through the city. With some of its southern suburbs annexed from Derbyshire, the city has grown from its largely industrial roots to encompass a wider economic base. The population of the City of Sheffield is 575,400 (mid-2016 est.) and it is one of the eight largest regional English cities that make up the Core Cities Group. Sheffield is the third largest English district by population. The metropolitan population of Sheffield is 1,569,000.
Feature: Conquering hills with ‘The Beast’:

Starts:
A doctor’s mission to make his rounds on an e-bike is being documented online... here were meet the medical man who has turned into a two-wheeled wonder. Three months into his vlogging career, Dr Ollie Hart reflected on his achievements so far as the social media star of ‘Doc on a Bike.’
Includes:
For those who have attempted Woodseats hill on a bike, it’s important to note that Ollie Hart is not a 20 year old hyper athlete in shiny lycra, but a 46 year old GP with a pannier full of medical equipment. And his co-star in the Doc on a Bike video blogs and twitter posts is no ordinary bicycle.
:mrgreen: "no ordinary bicycle"... :roll:

... and:
‘The Beast’ as Ollie affectionately calls his steed of three months, is an ‘e-bike’, a standard bicycle with a cunning electric motor to assist with pedalling when required, up to Woodseats for example.
Hehe... the "beast"... Mine's "the bike on steroids"... (I don't even let her sleep in my bed anymore.)

Starts:
A Dutch consortium including the University of Twente developed an electrical bicycle that prevents elderly people from falling. The smart Assistive Bicycle, called SOFIE, increases stability by, amongst others, a drive off assistance and by automatically lowering the saddle at low speeds. The UT, Indes and Roessingh Research and Development (RRD) worked together on this scientific based bike development. The scientific work of Vera Bulsink, PhD student at the UT, co-shaped the design and increased the stability of the prototype. She improved computer simulations and did laboratory testing on bicycling stability. She defended her PhD project on 7 December 2017.

Dear Santa, can you get an electric bike down my chimney?:

Christmas is soon here! Time is running short, and I still haven’t done any gift shopping… Being a Swede, for me the obvious first place to look for gift ideas is the Swedish Retail Institute (HUI Research), who have been selecting the Christmas gift of the year since 1988. And this year, they have chosen… the electric bicycle.

But hold on! What were they thinking…? Wrap it up, put it under the Christmas tree or stuff it into a stocking? Not very likely! Park it outside the door and tell your spouse or child to take a test ride in the ice and snow? Hmmm…

In Ericsson ConsumerLab’s 10 Hot Consumer Trends 2018 study, we asked advanced internet users in 10 cities around the world, what they think is the next tech gadget that people will buy, and the electric bicycle only came in 9th place. Being early adopters, these respondents probably consider the electric bike to be commonplace already, and selected the autonomous car for the top spot instead. There’s another unlikely candidate as a stocking filler.

Hospital workers first to ride hydrogen bikes:

Ten hydrogen-powered bicycles being used by staff at a hospital in Saint-Lô in what company claims is a 'world first'

Staff at a hospital in the Manche town of Saint-Lô have become the first in the world to use hydrogen-powered bicycles.

The town this week took delivery of 10 bicycles from Biarritz-based Pragma Industries, which designed and built the revolutionary vehicles. Another 10 have been sent to nearby Cherbourg, which will start using them in Spring 2018 after it has set up a suitable charging station, while 40 more will be delivered to Chambéry, Ariège, and the communauté d’agglomération Pays basque.

The first hydrogen bicycles will be used in Saint-Lô by hospital employees and Lecapitaine, a company of 800 employees. Between April and October, they will also be available for tourists to hire.

"We are being bombarded with requests," sales manager Christophe Bruniau told Le Monde, with interest from Denmark and Germany as well as across France.

The bicycles weigh 25kg - similar to an electric bike - but can be recharged with hydrogen in less than two minutes, compared to several hours for the electric version. The new bikes have a longer range, too, of about 100km compared to 50km.

HuffPost (formerly The Huffington Post and sometimes abbreviated HuffPo) is a liberal American news and opinion website and blog that now has both localized and international editions.

And laughs at the Mayor of New York City...
E-Bikes, Congestion Pricing and New York’s Need to Fix the Subway:
https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/e- ... 3dde46aaaf

Starts:
Here’s the reality: A fix to New York’s transit system can’t come fast enough for the millions of daily riders who rely on the City’s trains and buses to get to and from work. I am hopeful that Andy Byford, a tested transit leader who doesn’t own a car and is known for riding the trains and picking up trash on subway platforms, can save the system. Still, while we’re waiting for Andy to fix the subway and for congestion pricing to pay for the repairs, there have to be other transportation options we haven’t thoroughly explored.
Includes:
For those who have a longer commute and lack a shower at the office, what if there were a quiet, clean and small device that took up no more room than a bicycle that got you to your destination without you breaking a sweat? Well there is, and it’s been plying the streets of New York in some numbers for some time already. They are called e-bikes.
:mrgreen:

Ends:
I agree. It’s time the City and State got on the same page about e-bikes. And while we’re at it, let’s move forward with congestion pricing to gives us the cash we need to fix the subway. The regional economy and residents that rely on these engines, electric and otherwise, deserve both a first class transit system and the option of riding an e-bike when that is the preferred mode of transportation.

Yours in transit,

Joel

NB Herald began as the Moncton Weekly Tribune in 1868. The papers merged as NB Herald in 1983 to form a dynamic media company dedicated to the future of the region. Ever since, the NB Herald has served as the voice of New Brunswick.
(That's the NEW Brunswick... not to be confused with the OLD Brunswick...)
(Wiki:)
New Brunswick is one of three Maritime provinces, on the east coast of Canada.

Being relatively close to Europe, New Brunswick was among the first places in North America to be explored and settled, starting with the French in the early 1600s, who eventually colonized most of the Maritimes and some of Maine as the colony of Acadia. The area was caught up in the global conflict between the British and French empires, and in 1755 became part of Nova Scotia, to be partitioned off in 1784 following an influx of refugees from the American Revolutionary War.

In 1785, Saint John became the first incorporated city in Canada. The same year, the University of New Brunswick became one of the first universities in North America.

The e-bike community is booming around the world. Navigant expects around 35 million e-bikes to be purchased this year. In comparison, electric vehicles currently account for about 1 percent of all vehicle sales around the globe, with about 1.15 million units to be produced worldwide. E-bikes have also become popular in Europe and are now viewed as an alternative to cars, according to the New York Times. This year alone, about 400K e-bikes are projected to be sold in the United States, which is about 2.5 percent of the total bikes sold in the country.

The big threshold is the cost of the bike and riders can expect to pay around $2000 for a quality model e-bike.
