Netherlands further builds on cycling’s modal share, hitting 51% in Utrecht :
https://cyclingindustry.news/netherland ... n-utrecht/

Starts:
Already world-leading in cycling for transport, new figures from the Netherlands show that modal share is now topping 50% of journeys in some regions.

Utrecht leads the way, with 51% of journeys made by bike, according data from the Knowledge Institute for Mobility Policy. Amsterdam closely follows with 48% of trips cycled, which ties in well with the popular tourist destination’s plans to add floating cycle parking to cope with parking capacity problems.
... includes:
Amsterdam also boasts hosting more than double the number of trips cycled than those driven by private car. In June, research demonstrated that for trips shy of 7.5 kilometers, the Dutch almost always cycle more than they drive. Over longer distances (7.5 to 15 kilometres) the Dutch the study suggests around a third of trips are completed by bicycle or e-bike.

When it comes to electric bikes, Dutch bicycle retailers are now experiencing more transactions for pedal-assisted builds than they are pedal powered bikes, begging the question: In time might the Dutch cycle more journeys up to 15km over driving? The country is building more long-distance routes in order to encourage such behaviour.

Hehe... ESB "Search found 5 matches: +ONEBOT"... again:

Amsterdam prohibits non-pile sharing of bicycles:
http://www.digitaljournal.com/pr/3537077

China company Shenzhen Concepts Wit Technology Co., Ltd. PR re their ONEBOT T8 electric bike sharing (aka "Cobike".)

Starts:
Europe has been aware of the damage to environment and public orders of Chinese shared bicycles.

Recently, the European Shared Bicycle Platform (PBESS) has warned China's two largest shared bicycle company, Mobike and Ofo, to be classified as "destructive". PBESS does not want European cities become overwhelmed by the cheaply shared bikes like the Chinese capital - Beijing, which will not only disrupt the market, but also cause confusion for public space. Amsterdam is now one of the first to oppose a pile-free and unlicensed shared bicycle program. While in China, the government also have limited new sharing bicycles to the market.
Includes:
Sharing is dead? A Chinese startup company, Shenzhen Concepts Wit Technology Co., said NO. They offer ONEBOT T8 electric bike sharing, also named Cobike. User can download their App, then scan QR code on the body to unlock the e-bike, just like how to do with Mobike. The difference is that they offer service to tourism areas, campus etc, where will have special management to keep electric bikes in an orderly manner. And users can check how much power left and how far you can ride the e-bike by App.

So far, they have released 100pcs at Dapeng district (Shenzhen City, China), which is crowded by visitors to enjoy sea sight. The space is limited to park more and more cars, especially during weekends. People have to walk or ride bicycle operated by tourism management, while Mobike or Ofo is not allowed into their managing areas. Cobike offer them better alternative and the charge is 9 dollar per hour.

(Word is, next gen. ONEBOT might be easier to pedal...) :lol:

From there, he hit the road and kept working on the bike as he traveled, making the necessary changes and additions to turn the bike into a home. Three years later, the bike is equipped with unique features, including a solar panel, flashing lights, turn signals, several cameras, an electric motor and a horn.

Includes:
According to UNIST, the resulting Mando Footloose Urban Modular E-bike "is not only capable of generating electricity through human pedaling, but also capable of storing that energy for later use," although there's no indication of the rate of charging by the alternator. The vehicle is said to have "eight large-capacity, multiple-connected, battery systems" that deliver electricity to the four in-wheel electric motors
... awww... the chains watt bind... Give Us Freedom! ... Ermmm... something like that...

BKLYNER is a Brooklyn-wide news site, with its beginnings in Southern Brooklyn. Our roots are in community reporting, and we care about the communities we cover. We strive to cover the diversity of the Brooklyn neighborhoods and the news, issues, events, and businesses that matter to their residents.
E-Bikes: The Tale Of The Two Cities:
https://bklyner.com/e-bikes-the-tale-of-the-two-cities/

Starts:
Last week, Mayor De Blasio announced that in 2018, enforcement against e-bikes in New York City would be ramped up, as they pose a danger to pedestrians, though no data has been provided by the city to back the allegations.

We are doing a series of stories, looking at what seems to be at the heart of this issue: e-bikes, be they scooters or battery assisted bicycles, live in a legal limbo, yet enable vulnerable populations to live in the city—be they delivery people, or the disabled needing to get around.

Our first story is about two stores, that may as well be worlds apart.
:)

Includes:
On Grand Street in Bushwick, a storefront e-bike shop works as both retail and repair shop, with new e-bikes lined against the wall, and customer’s bikes in vary states of repair in every available bit of free space. Most e-bikes in Andy’s Bushwick shop sell for about $500 to $1,000.
Hehe... Can read "in vary states of disrepair". "Bought cheap", did ya? :lol:

... and:
Across town, near the Brooklyn Navy Yard, the future of e-bikes looks much brighter. In the gleaming showroom of Propel bikes, a couple from New Jersey looks at electric-assist mountain bikes they’d like shipped to Colorado, where they vacation. It’s a world away from Andy’s storefront-slash-repair shop.
"... near the Brooklyn Navy Yard..." GO Navy! :lol:

... and ends:
The biggest difference? A few thousand dollars. “Our sweet spot is probably $3,000 to $5,000,” said Leo, when asked about ballpark prices. “In the last year, though, we’ve sold 50 of these,” he says, pointing to a nearby bike. “Spec’d like that, they’re $7,300 each.”

While Andy’s Bushwick shop faces an uncertain future, Propel is taking deliveries of new models and planning for a big year. “We’re really bullish on 2018,” said Leo, “The market has really grown and we think it’s gonna bloom next year.”
Now curious to know % Propel ebike sales to Navy personnel. "Your tax dollars at work". :wink:

The Niagara Falls Review has been the local newspaper in Niagara Falls since 1879 and founded by William Henry Anger and James Edwin Anger.
... and:
Niagara Falls is a city in Ontario, Canada. It is on the western bank of the Niagara River in the Golden Horseshoe region of Southern Ontario, with a population of 88,071 at the 2016 census. The municipality was incorporated on 12 June 1903. Across the Niagara River is Niagara Falls, New York.

The Niagara River flows over Niagara Falls at this location, creating a natural spectacle which attracts millions of tourists each year, and a few police officers.
Hefty fine for e-bike rider:
http://www.niagarafallsreview.ca/2017/1 ... bike-rider

Starts:
Modifying an e-bike proved very costly for a St. Catharines man.

William Cotnam, 38, was fined $11,700 in an Ontario Court of Justice in St. Catharines on Thursday after pleading guilty to driving while disqualified and driving without insurance.

Court was told Niagara Regional Police officers were conducting speed enforcement on Geneva Street near Linwell Road on April 15 when Cotnam drove past them on an e-bike in the bicycle lane.

Riders of the electric-powered vehicles do not need a driver's licence or insurance. An e-bike must have pedals and the user must be able to use the pedals to power the bike.

Niagara police clocked the e-bike at almost 50 kilometres per hour. The speed limit for e-bikes is set at 32 kilometres per hour.
Hehe... Lets hope was going down hill... with a "big" tail wind...

... and:
An examination of the e-bike by police determined it had been modified. The chain had been removed and the pedals were tied to the frame which meant it then met the definition of a motor vehicle under the Highway Traffic Act.
Oh oh... In legal terms, I believe called a "gotcha"... :roll:

AND:
Court heard Cotnam did not have a licence due to previous conviction for impaired driving.

He still has $8,000 to $10,000 in outstanding fines due to previous driving infractions, including two earlier convictions for driving without insurance.

On Thursday, Cotnam was fined $10,000 for the insurance matter and an additional $1,700 for the charge of driving while disqualified.
:roll: :roll:

... AND:
Judge Joseph Nadel gave him three years to pay the $1,700 fine and a further five years to pay the larger fine. He was also banned from driving for two years.

The Standard was named as the Newspaper of the Year during the 2015 Rotary Club of Manila Journalism Awards for its balanced and crucial reporting on current issues like ebikes, including the exposé story on the involvement of Wang Bo, a Chinese drug lord as the primary suspect in the Bangsamoro Basic Law payola scam.
MDPPA road safety reminder as Undas draws near:
http://thestandard.com.ph/wheels-more-m ... -near.html

Starts:
Undas, the yearly Philippine holiday commemorating loved ones who have passed on, is only a few weeks away. With the coming holiday, many Filipinos are expected to go home to their provinces to visit their dearly departed, troop to the cemeteries in the city with family or take advantage of the opportunity to grab a quick getaway.

The Motorcycle Development Program Participants Association, Inc. (MDPPA) hopes to remind motorcycle riders to practice road safety this coming Undas.

Magnus Mateo, MDPPA Road Safety Committee Vice Chairman, shares some tips to guide motorcycle riders as they go out to be with family and friends in the cemetery or the provinces:
Includes:
Ability. Motorcycle riders should know how to properly ride a motorcycle. First-time motorcycle owners are encouraged to take riding lessons. A road safety driving center in Metro Manila teaches would-be riders first how to ride a bicycle properly and safely. Once they pass the bicycle driving test, students are taught how to ride an electric bike and then advance to learning the proper way to ride a motorcycle after passing the electric bike test.

Meet the LMX-161-H – An Electric Bike / Dirt Bike Hybrid :
https://amazingreveal.com/2017/10/27/me ... ke-hybrid/

Starts:
Electric drives gain a lot of traction in the off-road / dirtbike market. Even in bicycle circles, they become very quickly a thing when our latest articles about electric bicycles and bicycle-like vehicles are anything else. What about a mixture of both? Well, it seems that a few young French have built something like this, and that is quite remarkable.

LMX Bikes was founded in 2014 by Adam Mercier and Lucas Suteau to develop and build lightweight, high-performance freeride electric bicycles. Earlier models were essentially handmade single pieces or very low standard models with less than 50 bicycles. The new bike of the company, the extreme wheel 161-H, is the culmination of years of hard work and development.
8)

Ends:
Since its launch in early 2017, LMX has built a handful of 161-H models. They are currently running a crowdfunding campaign to collect enough money for the homologation required to make the bike legal.

KTM Bicycles Starts Legal Action Against Puello’s Pexco:
http://www.bike-eu.com/home/nieuws/2017 ... o-10131825

Starts:
MATTIGHOFEN, Austria – The clear and present involvement of KTM Industries AG in the newly founded Pexco e-bike company already raised eyebrows at last September’s Eurobike. On stage at a presentation in Friedrichshafen, Susanne Puello pointed to ‘KTM’ more than once. Reason for KTM Fahrrad (Bicycles) GmbH to take legal action.

“For us the bicycle market and e-bikes are the next logical step to grow our business,” said KTM Industries AG CEO Stefan Pierer on stage during the Pexco presentation at Eurobike.

These tiny electric tuk-tuks are taking on Uber in Stockholm — offering a 'super cheap' and emission-free ride :
http://nordic.businessinsider.com/these ... ers-2017-5

(Hehe... note URL includes "hilarious-electric-tuk-tuks"... ) :lol:

Starts w/a pic:

... and:
There’s much talk about a coming mobility revolution, led by electric vehicles and other futuristic modes of transport. But a startup from Gothenburg called Bzzt is taking a more hands-on approach - using Stockholm as its launchpad.

Bzzt offers an Uber-like service, but instead of cars it uses tiny electric mopeds that can travel up to 45 kilometers per hour. The company’s vision is to make taxi services available to everyone in the inner city, by offering prices comparable to public transport.
8)

... and:
After trialling the service with three of their vehicles in Gothenburg over the last two years, Nyrenius and his cofounder, CEO Sven Wolf, have now taken on their true target market: Stockholm.
"Last Wednesday, Bzzt set its fleet of 18 vehicles loose on the streets of Stockholm" :shock:
First of all, Uber “has missed the environmental aspect completely,” says Wolf. Bzzt-vehicles are emission-free, and once they are not taking customers, the vehicles are parked in an underground garage.
:D
By the end of this year, the company aims to expand its fleet in Stockholm to 50 vehicles, and then quadruple the fleet to 200 by 2018.
:shock:

Sorta hope for "ES Purposes" this "tiny Tuk-Tuk" trikes still fall under "bikes"(and trikes) versus "cars" et al... :lol:

A sound basis for the future:

(Note article ends/signed by "Marlene Mizzi is a Labour MEP" aka "the ruling party" on Malta.) :lol:

Includes the bit:
The environment, particularly the air we breathe in an island chock-full of cars, also features in the 2018 budget. While retaining the refund scheme on VAT paid on the purchase of a bicycle, cash refunds are also to be granted on the purchase of motorcycles, scooters and electric bicycles. Electric bicycles are to be exempted from VAT and the rental of bicycles will attract VAT at 7% rather than the current 18%. Add to that the measure that will exempt electric and hybrid vehicles from road licence for a period of five years.
... however [C]ommenter Mary Lucas... less than "enthusiastic" about life on Malta these daze... :lol:

("Want an ebike to beat the rush hour, but don’t want anyone to know? T3 tests three leading models"):
https://www.t3.com/features/city-slicke ... cling-chic

Starts:
Ebike sales continue to explode. Whether you’re thinking about buying one to get a bit fitter, commute to work faster than ever, or just have fun on a weekend without breaking a sweat, they’re a supremely smart option. But, despite widespread adoption, ebikes still suffer from a bit of a stigma - that is, an ebike looks like an ebike. For some people, it’s because they think electric power is cheating and that makes them a bit unfashionable, but we think it’s simply because the majority of ebikes don’t look cool. E With a sizeable battery taking up a large portion of the frame’s triangle, ebikes lack the simple, streamlined style that conventional bicycles have enjoyed for hundreds of years.
Hehe... Sales "exploding"... politely, no mention re batteries. :lol:

Goes on:
Things are on the up, though. In this issue’s State of the Art we’re showcasing three of the latest ebikes from Trek, Reise&Muller and – new-to-the-escene – Vanmoof, and good news: they don’t look like ebikes. Instead of the traditional battery bolted to the frame, like an afterthought that we’ve become accustomed to, these two-wheelers have their electric credentials tucked away inside the frames, or integrated in such a way that it doesn’t visually jar.
"they don’t look like ebikes"... :roll:

Ends:Verdict: the overall winner is...

Ooops. Sorry... this post cut short. :wink:

At the exhibition, Professor Jung’s team also released their “Aero-vent Brake Caliper” design concept. With its eye-catching innovative design, the proposed concept has brought Mando’s existing high-performance caliper to life. Significantly enhanced cooling capability, as well as the trendy style have been attained in the newly-introduced design concept.

In addition, Professor Jeong has recently proposed a new brake design concept, called ‘Modular Brake Caliper’ that no world-class brake companies have ever tried. Currently, this new design concept is patent pending.
