Kalkhoff aims to shift urban mobility picture with 2018 bikes :
https://cyclingindustry.news/kalkhoff-a ... 018-bikes/

Starts:
With the UK market in the midst of electric fever you’ll be unsurprised to read that Kalkhoff – one of the market’s veteran producers – is on a steep trajectory. Though not exclusively an electric bike brand, the firm did, for good reason, place increased emphasis on its pedal-assisted portfolio at the recent Eurobike show.
Hehe... "electric fever". :mrgreen:

The Australian is a broadsheet newspaper published in Australia from Monday to Saturday each week since 14 July 1964. Available nationally (in each state and territory), The Australian is the biggest-selling national newspaper in the country, with a circulation of 116,655 on weekdays and 254,891 on weekends in 2013...
Best dressed for Sydney’s Suit Ride tour of inner city sights:
http://www.theaustralian.com.au/life/co ... 77abec1ad2

Starts:
One of this year’s binge-watching guilty pleasures for me was Suits. With its impeccably stylish cast of warring lawyers, rapid-fire patter, arch pop-cultural winks and nods, and the freckled goodness of Prince Harry’s main squeeze, the delightfully named Meghan Markle, what was not to love?

But the enduring image for me was of the main character, Mike Ross, a dropout, drug-dealing genius who accidentally ends up in a law firm and gets hired, played in all his squinty, blue-eyed, square-jawed splendour by Patrick J. Adams, insouciantly swinging one leg up on to his stripped-down hipster bike and tooling around Manhattan, resplendent in his eponymous suit.
Includes:
“A growing number of Sydney businesses support people riding because of the productivity, health and financial benefits bikes bring to the workplace,” Lord Mayor Clover Moore said.
... and:
Clover Moore wasn’t on the ride, doubtless worried her mayoral robes might have been a hazard. But I met someone much more important: Sydney’s Bicycle Mayor, Sarah H. Imm, investment banker turned founder and spruiker-in-chief of lifestyle brand Velo-a-Porter.

Her Rolling Honour hails from Minneapolis, Minnesota via South Korea, studied in Chicago and worked in New York, London, Hong Kong and Seoul before settling in Sydney.
... AND:
She owns five bikes (e-bike, Nihola cargo tricycle from Denmark, mountain bike, road bike, hipster bike) and sports Lycra on occasions. For the Suit Ride, she’s sporting a floral number and her new Cover by Velo-a-Porter, which transforms the average bike helmet into a stylish hat.

The Bicycle Mayor let me tool around for a bit on her e-bike and even showed me some of her best bike-friendly shortcuts through Surry Hills on the way home. Who knows what the denizens of Crown, Campbell and Bourke streets made of a peloton of people in business attire pedalling like mad dogs in the midday sun through their streets. But for the participants at least, not withstanding my shaky start, the Suit Ride was a freewheeling success.

Column: A fraction of the energy needed - but e-bikes still sustainable option:
http://www.sheffieldtelegraph.co.uk/new ... -1-8795875

Starts:
More and more people are choosing to use a pedal cycle for every-day urban journeys in Sheffield as word gets round that cycling, especially on one of the increasingly common electrically assisted bikes (e-bikes), gets you from door to door quickly, conveniently and cheaply, using cycle friendly routes that can take you through some of the most tranquil and interesting parts of the city, often just a street or two away from busy polluted roads.
( :shock: MY bikes are now ELECTRONIC... should anybuddy ask. :wink: :lol: )


Includes:
In the same issue (August 3) there was a full page item on the pressing issue of poor air quality ADVERTISEMENT in and around our city, so bad that it has for a long time been exceeding safe and legal limits, adversely affecting Sheffielders’ lives, contributing to chronic airway conditions, and even to the premature deaths of 500 Sheffielders annually.
:shock: :cry:

Nice (long) article ends:So choose an e-bike for your next urban journey, enjoy the fun, freedom and convenience they bring, and at the same time help to improve our city’s liveability.

Brompton Bicycle on why brands must forge closer ties with manufacturing
https://www.marketingweek.com/2017/10/0 ... facturing/

Includes:
Striving for perfection

Despite achieving popularity in cities such as London, underlying profits at Brompton fell 40% to £1.3m last year. This was largely due to it investing in a long-term project to build electric-powered bikes in collaboration with Formula 1 team Williams. “Around the time of the electric bike launches, I expect we’ll start to do more above-the-line and think more about an ecommerce offer,” Mann added.

HUH???

Paris: the End of the excitement for the electric bike?:
https://sherbrooktimes.com/paris-the-en ... ke-2/15668

Starts:
“Put the Parisians in the saddle “, is the motto of the cycling plan put in place in the capital for the past two years. The City of Paris intends to ” triple the number of bicycle trips and to double the length of hov lanes for their movement. “In February, Ségolène Royal, minister of Ecology, sustainable Development and Energy, had put in place a bonus with the purchase, to the tune of 200 euros, for a bike with electric assistance (VAE).

The province set aside

The announcement of the removal of this bonus with the purchase by the new government rings hollow for the industry, which has been a phenomenal increase of its sales. “I am quite perplexed. Cut off these subsidies, it is especially to put a stop to the French industry, which starts to rotate at full speed as well as a excitement-level of the practice of the electric bike “, explains Laurent Chauvin, the founder of the store The electric bicycle in Paris, in the 5th.
... and:
However, many local authorities will continue to offer assistance to the purchase. The City of Paris, she, ” will also continue to put in place the financial assistance for the purchase of an electric vehicle to the tune of 400€, up to 33 % of the purchase price of the bike. “The government’s decision is part of the bill to Finance (PLF), and affects a large proportion of the population living in the province, far from the great metropolises,” where the electric bike market is emerging as fast as in the capital, ” according to Lawrence Chauvin.
Phew... (possibly "stuff lost in translation".) :wink:

Cycling Weekly is the UK's best selling cycling magazine and delivers daily ebiking news and cycle equipment reviews.
Raleigh bikes: the complete buying guide:

Starts:
Raleigh has been trading since 1885 - but its bikes have come a long way since the 'safety bicycle', and indeed the Chopper of the 1970s
Includes:
Raleigh experimented with a number of product groups; for example motorcycles in 1899 and the three wheeled Raleighette in 1903. By 1913, the business was the biggest bicycle manufacturing company in the world.
... and:
The US frames were already manufactured in Taiwan, but the UK frame making equipment was sold in 1999 – production moving to Vietnam.

Come 2012, Derby was acquired by Pon, a Dutch company which also owns Gazelle and Cervélo, then later that year a second change of hands saw it come under Accell, the current owner whose other brands include Lapierre and Ghost bicycles.

In January 2017, it was announced that Raleigh will be distributing Lapierre bikes in the UK, from September 2017.
Hehe... and has a Handy-Dandy (TM) list Useful links for road bike shoppers…

... which right at the bottom of a long list includes:
(Other bike styles) = Adventure and gravel bikes, Cyclocross bikes, Electric bikes, Hybrid bikes
BUT DOES in types of bicycles "Here’s an outline of some of the main road models…:
Raleigh also offers a Strada electric bike, which at £2,350 comes with a Shimano Steps E6000 system, boasting 50NM centre mount motor and 400wh battery.

The bike shares the 650b wheels of the non-assisted versions, plus a lighter weight carbon fork and 42mm wide tubeless ready tyres which will cope with assorted surfaces.

The gearing system is single chainring with nine gears on the 12-36 cassette, and the discs are hydraulic.

And Raleigh will guarantee lower poops per mile. [/img]

Are New York City cyclists unfairly targeted by cops?

It’s a question that resurfaces constantly, with cyclists warning each other about “ticket blitzes” and lamenting their citations while, they say, drivers aren’t given their share.
...includes:
The influx of electric-assist bikes and indifferent yuppies and tourists on Citi Bikes have unleashed a new havoc in the melting pot of 9 million bodies trying to get from point A to point B,” he said. “The new influx of riders who ride recklessly, unable to notice pedestrians or safely navigate the streets legally in the presence of the police, causes a spike in complaints about cyclists.”

Zoomcar is rather planning something much more significant in the e-vehicle space.

The company has extended its existing partnership with Mahindra & Mahindra to offer plug-in electric vehicles for self-drive.
...and:
The government is one of the biggest stakeholders in this regard. To fulfil its vision of implementing 100% electric vehicles by 2020, the government is planning to float bulk supply tenders for electric three-wheelers and electric-rickshaws, which will be followed by contracts for electric buses.
... and:
Several private companies also, such as Mahindra & Mahindra, Tata Motors, are also working to create charging infrastructure. Hero MotorCorp-backed Ather Energy has built a proprietary electric scooter, is also setting up charging infrastructure across the country. Bangalore currently has about 25-30 fast chargers.
