Everybody seems to love the videos....

Post by alsmith » Nov 10, 2013 10:43 am

....so here are links to the Top 10 fast electric bikes, and 10 e-bike crashes courtesy of www.electricbike.com - anyone heard of someone called liveforphysics who makes both lists? And I think I've some of the names on the 'fastest' list before.........

Liveforphysics (Luke) is a well known member of ES, and famous builder of high power ebikes. :wink:

Ebike crashes are not caught on vid very often, I bet the list will be much more spectacular in a few years.

10 fastest, what a joke. Only 2 are fast, and one of those is a motorcycle. Fast doesn't belong in the same sentence as any electric bike that can't go faster than the fastest pedal bike (83mph) is absurd. Since my Cannondale SuperV daily rider has broken 100mph on flat ground, then yes I can talk.

We need to get you on that list then! Those are all some pretty nice bikes though.

It's like all lists. As soon as they are published they are out of date. Some nice stuff even if they aren't in the top 10 though.

Yeah, mostly just a beauty contest of bikes that can't beat Sam Whittingham on just pedal power. The title wasn't "pretty and kinda fast". Almost all of those bikes are just recycled from other of their lists. Some of our Italian brothers not on the list have also busted through the human powered barrier.

yeah, not much room inside those things...
i see space in the back of the head for a couple of sandwiches... :lol:

this e-streamliner concept would be an apple to apple comparison,
btw, an electraton trike already went 110mph on the salts.
