Hehe... ESB "Search found 1 match: +Rayvolt +Cruzer"... again:

Image

The Rayvolt Cruzer is a state of the art e-bike with classic good looks:
https://www.treehugger.com/bikes/rayvol ... -bike.html

Image

Starts:This stylish electric bike is a beautiful thing, even if it only carries a single rider and no cargo.

:mrgreen:

... and:
One aspect of a maturing electric bike ecosystem...
Electrics are now an "ecosystem". :mrgreen:

Includes:
RayVolt, based in Barcelona, Spain, also offers a rather tame looking city bike, the Ozone model, but considering the number of other bland e-bikes out there already, the Cruzer is apt to get a lot more attention. The Cruzer is available with either a 400W or a 1000W rear hub motor, the choice of either a single 48V lithium-ion battery pack (10.5Ah/567Wh) or a double pack (21Ah/1134Wh), and one of three color schemes (Clock Work Orange, British Racing Green, Gun Metal Grey).
... and ends:
The price on the RayVolt Cruzer starts at about 2400 euros (about $2800 US), which isn't exactly chump change, and you might have to go to Europe to get one, but there seems to be no shortage of options when it comes to the rather pedestrian e-bikes that can be delivered right to your door, so the cost is probably a pretty good indicator of its target market.

(They say:)
Founded in 1971, Hi-Torque Publications quickly became the undisputed leader in the motorcycle media industry. First launching DIRT BIKE and MOTOCROSS ACTION, and later DIRT WHEELS and ATV UTV ACTION magazines, these titles quickly surpassed all competitors to become the #1 newsstand-selling titles in the marketplace, with the largest core consumer reach in their respective fields. Twenty-eight years later, we clearly remain the most powerful media source in the industry today.
... and actually? Their current crop of publications do include also "Mountain Bike Action", and "Road Bike Action"... and now also "Electric Bike Action". :)

Anyway, just up on "Mountain Bike Action" (Where they warn: "WARNING: Much of the action de­pict­­ed in this magazine is potentially dan­gerous. Virtually all of the riders seen in our photos are experienced ex­­perts or professionals. Do not at­tempt to duplicate any stunts that are be­­yond your own capabilities.

Eurobike tweaks format ahead of big changes looming for 2018:
http://www.bicycleretailer.com/internat ... aWgf9iQy1g

Starts:
FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany (BRAIN) — Given the turmoil swirling around new dates and locations for trade shows next year, Eurobike is looking like a beacon of calm — and doing the same old, same old never felt so good. Add to this a healthy European market and continued e-bike product innovation, and it’s not surprising that Eurobike head Stefan Reisinger expects a show a bit larger than last year.
:mrgreen:

Includes:
Also, host venue Messe Friedrichshafen made a 5.2 million euro ($6.1 million) investment in the air-conditioning system so attendees can demo outside and cool off inside now.
(`Kay. THAT's odd. Guess if I weren't riding w/electrics and stopped somewhere, might be nice. Hehe...)

... and:E-bikes and related parts and apparel have ignited the European market and are so dominant at Eurobike that Reisinger says it’s difficult to divide the e-business away from the “traditional” bike business anymore.

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: ("The "traditional" business, watts left of it", one commenter noted. Hehe)

... and:
Another change from previous years is Eurobike’s The Writers’ Club, an attempt help bloggers, and other online journalists get better access to industry players — and vice versa. With bike-related websites seeming to pop up daily, Eurobike hopes to provide minimal vetting to media organizations or individuals signing up for The Writers’ Club so manufacturers can spend their limited time where they think it matters most.

“We are receiving a great response to The Writers’ Club initiative and right now we are compiling a specific program for Eurobike — as we do for print journalists. After examination, the influencers from all media types will get the same services we provide traditional media now,” Reisinger said.
Ohhh... a "Writers’ Club"? :wink:

E-bike sales carry German market so far in 2017:
http://www.bicycleretailer.com/internat ... aWlDtiQy1g

Gosh! (... and Golly!) REALLY??? :lol:

I KNEW IT... it's those darn electrics. "Bikes without electric drives are declining in sales."

Includes:
“But e-bike sales have increased by 30 percent, which we anticipate will level the overall sales figures by the end of the year. We estimate 680,000 e-bikes will be sold in Germany by the end of 2017.”
:shock:

"An e-bike purchase often replaces the purchase of a traditional bike." SURPRISE!

"About 540,000 e-bikes were sold in the first half of 2017, and if ZIV's predictions are accurate, Germany's e-bike sales will see double-digit growth of 12 percent for the year."

Too much excitement yet?
While ZIV did not report accessories, components and other bike-related sales figures, it estimates that these categories have likely increased slightly this year as a result of rising e-bike sales. And, according to figures from the Federal Statistics Office, bike and e-bike exports also show some growth, up 2.3 percent from January through June, with e-bike exports rising 25 percent. Imports, however, declined by about 1.2 percent, while the e-bike share of imports hit 21 percent.
Any guys "wet their jeans" yet?
While Germany, Austria and Switzerland remain core markets of widespread adoption of e-bikes, sales are growing in other parts of Europe, Scandinavia, Australia, Asia, and the United States.
Lets call it "north America". :wink:

"0 Comments" on that site yet. Anybuddy?

(They say:)
The Edmonton Examiner is Canada's largest urban community newspaper, delivered to more than 140,000 homes in the city of Edmonton. Each Wednesday, the Examiner publishes seven versions of the newspaper, each tailored to the following regions.
(Wiki:)
Edmonton is the capital city of the Canadian province of Alberta. Edmonton is on the North Saskatchewan River and is the centre of the Edmonton Capital Region, which is surrounded by Alberta's central region. The city anchors the north end of what Statistics Canada defines as the "Calgary–Edmonton Corridor".

The city had a population of 932,546 in 2016, making it Alberta's second-largest city and Canada's fifth-largest municipality. Also in 2016, Edmonton had a metropolitan population of 1,321,426, making it the sixth-largest census metropolitan area (CMA) in Canada. Edmonton is North America's northernmost city with a metropolitan population over one million.
Edmonton bike shop Revolution Cycle hopes that motor-assisted, pedelec bikes will get approval for use on River Valley trails :
http://www.edmontonexaminer.com/2017/08 ... ley-trails

:roll:

Includes:
There are two kinds of “eBikes” available. The first, just called an eBike, is a throttle-based bicycle that gives the rider the ability to pedal, but that input has no effect on the cycle’s movement when its motor is engaged. The second is the pedelec, which assists cyclists as they pedal the bike, adding some motorized momentum when it senses they might need a little help, when they’re on a steep hill, for example.

It’s this second type that Revolution Cycle would like to see more of in the River Valley. They also tend to have a speed-cap at 32 kilometres per hour, MacFynn said, which is a pretty standard speed for many group rides one would see going down the shoulder of a highway.
:roll:

Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Regulations (aka "MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY ACT"):
http://lois-laws.justice.gc.ca/eng/regu ... lText.html
power-assisted bicycle means a vehicle that:

(a) has steering handlebars and is equipped with pedals,

(b) is designed to travel on not more than three wheels in contact with the ground,

(c) is capable of being propelled by muscular power,

(d) has one or more electric motors that have, singly or in combination, the following characteristics:

(i) it has a total continuous power output rating, measured at the shaft of each motor, of 500 W or less,

(ii) if it is engaged by the use of muscular power, power assistance immediately ceases when the muscular power ceases,

(iii) if it is engaged by the use of an accelerator controller, power assistance immediately ceases when the brakes are applied, and

(iv) it is incapable of providing further assistance when the bicycle attains a speed of 32 km/h on level ground,

(e) bears a label that is permanently affixed by the manufacturer and appears in a conspicuous location stating, in both official languages, that the vehicle is a power-assisted bicycle as defined in this subsection, and

(f) has one of the following safety features,

(i) an enabling mechanism to turn the electric motor on and off that is separate from the accelerator controller and fitted in such a manner that it is operable by the driver, or

(ii) a mechanism that prevents the motor from being engaged before the bicycle attains a speed of 3 km/h; (bicyclette assistée)
(Funny lawyers... no mention re any PEAK outputs... or for how long.) :wink:

Article ends:
According to MacFynn, Revolution Cycle sold around 250 eBikes last year, and expects to exceed this number by at least 10 per cent this year.

Starts:
FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany – The German e-bike market is expected to grow by 12% this year as the national industry association ZIV reported today. According to Bosch eBike Systems general manager Claus Fleischer, “The e-bike market share will rise to at least 65%.”

Once Again E-Bikes Prove to Be Industry’s Trump Card:
http://www.bike-eu.com/sales-trends/nie ... d-10131142

Starts:
FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany – Europe’s biggest e-bike market will grow this year by over 12%. Total sales will end at 700,000 units over 2017. However, there’s a downside to this success – regular bicycle sales dropped by 8.5% in the first half of 2017.

Huh. ESB "Search found 14 matches: +H800"... but ZERO for "Bafang H800"?

Image

Bafang Hub Motor for E-MTB and Speed E-Bikes:
http://www.bike-eu.com/sales-trends/nie ... s-10131126

Starts:
SUZHOU, China –Bafang’s new H800 gear-drive rear hub motor, with 350 or 500 W output and a max torque of 55 Nm, features a modern MTB thru-axle design. Together with the Boost option it’s most suitable for sporty e-MTBs and all types of speed pedelecs.
Image
(Pic cap:)
The diameter of just 180 mm makes the H800 is virtually invisible from the disc brake side. – Photo Bafang
Goes on:
With a diameter of just 180 mm, the motor is virtually invisible from the disc brake side as the rotor has a diameter of 203 mm. The freewheel body fits 7 to 10 speed cassettes. It has been engineered for maximum heat resistance, and compatible with both 650B and 29-inch wheels.
... and:
Bafang’s engineers have developed a special drop-out design which delivers ultra-robust torque support, seamlessly integrated with the thru-axle system.
ends:
A second important new feature is the waterproof Smart Plug quick release cable connector. Traditionally a rather stiff cable exits from the axle and must be routed along the chain stay to an external connector. This allows the rear wheel to be removed from the frame to fix a puncture, or for servicing. The SmartPlug makes this super-easy for both dealers and consumers.

The hub works with either speed or torque sensor in the bottom brackets, while many different display are available. The new H800 will be available from Q1-2018.

E-bike market continues to grow – Eurobike Show Trend Report:
https://www.chipin.com/e-bike-market-continues-grow/

Starts:
The German bicycle industry experienced a rather difficult year due to the weather in the first half of 2016. A rainy spring and cool temperatures extending into summer were responsible for the fact that cycling did not really take off until later in the year.

The conditions in the first half of 2017 were quite different. Good cycling weather came early, and even with the cool and rainy April, the first six months of the year proved to be quite bicycle-friendly.
... and notes:
According to numbers from the Federal Statistics Office, imports of bicycles and e-bikes to Germany declined by about 1.2%. The e-bike share of imports in the period January to June was 21% (previous year: 19%).

On the other hand, exports of bicycles and e-bikes show a slight increase. Between January and June, export volume rose slightly by 2.3%. The e-bike share of exports was 25% (previous year: 21%).
Then the sub-heading E-bike sales boom

:mrgreen:
While Germans are hesitant to buy when it comes to bikes, the news around e-bike sales is nothing but good for the bicycle industry. The bicycle industry association estimates that around 540,000 e-bikes have already been sold through dealerships in the first half of 2017. For the year as a whole, the industry estimates that around 680,000 vehicles will be sold. This would represent double-digit growth of around 12%.

Although the categories e-city and e-trekking bikes are still proportionally the largest, it has been shown that electric propulsion has now moved into nearly all model groups. The product group of e-mountain bikes is to be highlighted in particular here.

The increase in electrified carrier/cargo bikes is also noteworthy. This vehicle category is already making an important contribution to commercial and private cargo transport. This applies in particular to urban space, but it is also applicable as a supplement to the growing delivery commerce with environmentally friendly and space-saving concepts.
... and notes:
The population is getting older. Even though the trend towards fewer and fewer children per capita seems to have stopped, the decline in birth rates in recent decades is noticeable.

RALEIGH

For some N.C. State University students and others near campus, a trip from point A to point B begins by looking for a lime green bike.

LimeBike, a California company, has brought its bike-share program to N.C. State University at the invitation of the school’s transportation department. Three hundred of the company’s bright green bikes were set out on campus as students returned on Aug. 16, and since then more than 1,400 people have downloaded the company’s mobile app that lets them unlock a bike and charges them for the time they’re using it.
Includes:
The city’s program will start with 30 docking stations and 300 bikes, some of which will have electric motors.

Susanne Puello and KTM Industries Launch New Brands:
http://www.bike-eu.com/home/nieuws/2017 ... s-10131177

Starts:
FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany – The big surprise of the brand presentation of Susanne Puello and her business partner KTM Industries earlier today at Eurobike was not the introduction of one brand only but no less than three names. Deliveries are to start next December.
Includes:
More than e-bikes only

Under the company name Pexco GmbH, Susanne Puello joined forces with motorcycle maker KTM Industries AG, while her husband Felix Puello is expected to enter the company soon. Remarkably Pexco will not only focus on e-bikes only but the company is also to bring a range of "classic"/antique/vintage/poop-mobile-style bicycles. In an earlier statement on Pexco’s vision Susanne Puello said that they would “be reaching for the next level in e-mobility.”
:shock:

Ends:
No bikes were shown at today’s presentation. The roadshow for the German market will start in November with Husqvarna and Raymon while the R2R bikes will be presented at Eurobike 2018.

Bianchi and Ferrari Announce Cooperation:
http://www.bike-eu.com/home/nieuws/2017 ... n-10131174

Starts:
FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany – It’s said to be different from all other brand-licensing currently taking place and of which numerous examples can be found at this year’s Eurobike. It’s not just ‘re-badging’ made by Bianchi bikes with the world famous Ferrari logo. The cooperation announced today, by none other than Salvatore Grimaldi himself (Bianchi owner and President), is to go far beyond that.
Ends:
The long term relationship on which the two companies embarked upon is focused on the development of a complete line-up of bikes. This range is to include road and MTB bikes as well as e-bikes, triathlon and kid bikes. The first one of that line-up is now there. It’s a carbon road bike proudly carrying the Scuderia Ferrari name.

Cycling 4.0: Business Migrating to Electronics & Software and IoT:
http://www.bike-eu.com/sales-trends/nie ... t-10131167

Starts:
FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany – What this year’s Eurobike is making clear to all is that the business is migrating on an enormous scale. It is shifting from the traditional groupsets and mechanical parts to an integrated electric-assist motor/transmission, disc brakes and a push-button electronic shifting. At the core of this transformation is a migration of value to a platform based upon electrical and software-based components.
8)

Includes:
Shimano able to keep up

As for existing players in the global cycling industry only Shimano really has similar financial resources to keep on the same level as these automotive players. But, it’s been slow to capitalize on this transformation even though it had the edge with the introduction of its Di2 electronic shifting in 2009. But, they are improving their e-assist mid-motor and we have seen a patent it filed in 2016 for an integrated electro-hydraulic ABS into its e-assist mid-motor. So, it’s probably not far behind Bosch in that area.

Final Call for E-Bike Regulations Meeting:
http://www.bike-eu.com/shows-events/nie ... g-10131163

Starts:
FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany – This is the final call for industry peers that want to take part in the information meeting on rules & regulations for e-bikes, e-MTB’s, speed pedelecs and cargo e-bikes. This meeting will take place at Eurobike on Thursday 31 August.

E-bikes in Europe are subject to a lot of complicated rules: type-approval, CE-standards, the Machinery Directive, helmet obligation, insurance, traffic code etcetera.
Hehe... It's a "time honored tradition" to "divide and conquer". :wink: Wait'll they try and agree on the "proper" neck braces to be worn... and the "right" "athletic supporters" that guys must wear.

As already noted in ES Newz, the Robb Report first picked up on the E-voluzione back in September last year:

Current article ends:
Only 88 examaples of the bike will be made; priced at approximately $11,900, the Elettronica is set to be released in January.

Pininfarina also used the occasion of Eurobike to show off its Alloy line (teased earlier this year), which lacks the carbon fiber of its cousins. The Alloy bikes are priced at about $4,750 and will be made available for purchase in April.

People flock to try out new Richmond Bike Share: ‘That’s a gem’:
http://wtvr.com/2017/08/30/people-flock ... ats-a-gem/

Starts:
RICHMOND, Va. – People walking downtown Wednesday stopped to explore the new RVA Bike Share hub at the Turning Basin in Shockoe Bottom, where more bikes were rented out than there were docked.

The program had a rainy day launch the day before, after an almost year delay. The first round rolled out with sixteen stations and 220 bikes.
... goes on:
The city chose Canadian-based vendor Bewegen Technologies Inc. to supply the bikes, which all have a basket, horn, front and back lights and a lock. The vendor was the first to offer pedal assist in North America, which will be rolled out in “very short order,” according to Bicycle, Pedestrian and Trails Coordinator Jakob Helmboldt.

“This is just the beginning, the introduction of bike share to the city,” Helmboldt said. The city hopes to next double the size of their program in addition to the electric pedal assist.

Uphill flow: The Pivot Shuttle e-MTB is a ride to the top:

:lol:

Starts:
FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany (BRAIN) — The launch of Pivot's Shimano STEPS-powered electric mountain bike, the Shuttle, was so successful that the company has ordered another production run as it is already halfway through its first batch of bikes.
:shock: :mrgreen:

Includes:
The $12,000 list price might limit the Shuttle's appeal to the North American market. However, the $10,000-and-higher e-MTB market in Europe is robust.

Founded in 2008, CyclingTips is an Australian-based website that seeks to share the beauty of cycling and to inspire cyclists of all levels to become better and more knowledgeable riders.

We’re focused mainly on ebiking and road cycling — from the professional cycling scene through to challenging local recreational rides — but we occasionally dabble in other disciplines (including mountain biking and cyclocross).
Eurobike 2017 live tech coverage, day one:
https://cyclingtips.com/2017/08/eurobik ... e-day-one/

Starts:
FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany (CT) – The Eurobike bicycle trade show is upon us once again, and CyclingTips is on site to bring you the best (and, potentially, worst) of next season’s new bikes, components, accessories, and kit. Like last year, we’ll be posting images, information, and interviews nearly in real time, straight from the floor of the sprawling Messe Friedrichshafen conventional center on the shores of Lake Constance.
... watt doesn't mention electrics EVen ONCE??? [grumble grumble]...

`Cept there's ONE [C]omment:
Tern GSD cargo bike

Is this the coolest bike of this year’s Eurobike show? It very well may be. Tern’s new GSD e-cargo bike boasts an innovative 20″ wheel format, a Bosch center-drive electric motor (with optional dual batteries), and an ingenious design that is not only incredibly versatile and adaptable to suit your needs, but also remarkably compact. Retail price is US$4000. Photo: James Huang.

Continental shows 48V mid-drive motor and gearbox unit at Eurobike:
http://www.bicycleretailer.com/internat ... ah4CtiQy1g

Starts:
FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany (BRAIN) — Continental hopes to jump ahead of its mid-drive competitors Bosch and Brose with the launch of its 48V system that combines a gearbox and electric motor into a package not much larger than current motor-only mid-drive systems.

Continental is best known in North America for its car and bicycle tires. Its rubber business is a small part of the company’s mostly electrical automotive systems business and other technologies it develops for various industries.

The 48V system uses licensed technology from gear hub maker NuVinci, but the motor and gearbox are built entirely by Continental.

De-cloaking today is a new startup from two of the founders of defunct food delivery company Take Eat Easy. Dubbed Cowboy, the company is building a new electronic bicycle that it claims will address issues that have historically stopped e-bikes from becoming a “fully fledged mobility solution”.

Includes:
“We haven’t launched yet,” Cowboy co-founder Adrien Roose tells me. “We are still entirely focusing on product development. After six months of design, engineering and industrialisation, we now have a first fully functional prototype. We will keep iterating on the product in the coming months, with the objective to launch early Spring 2018”.

Taiwan's complete bike exports down more than 18 percent in 2017:
http://www.bicycleretailer.com/internat ... ah-NtiQy1g

Starts:
FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany (BRAIN) — Export figures supplied by Taiwan's Ministry of Finance shared at a press conference organized by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) on day two of Eurobike paint a rather bleak picture. The country's complete bike exports, including e-bikes, are down 18.5 percent for the first half of 2017. Total complete bike exports excluding e-bikes fell nearly 25 percent for the same period in 2016.

But it wasn't all bad news. The country's focus on producing higher-end product and electronic lighting continues to have a positive effect on average unit prices, which rose 8.5 percent from $448.71 to $486.41. And e-bike exports are up 27 percent overall — a surge the Ministry attributes to the European Union's increasing demand for electric models over traditional bicycles, particularly in Germany.
