Eben Weiss writes the Bike Snob NYC blog. His post for Monday, March 6, 2017 titled "I could come up with a title for this post, but then it would be even later.
http://bikesnobnyc.blogspot.ca/2017/03/ ... -this.html

...blogging on about that KISS branded bike and the Speednite "cutting-edge lighting system", and ends:
If you crash on your Kiss bike there's an explosion of sparks, the stem plays "Detroit Rock City," and the Speednite flashes in time with the music.

Or, you could just get a folding electric fat bike instead:


... and he comments: This will be every bike at Walmart in 10 years.

(Really not sure "every bike at Walmart" is a compliment or not?)

Nathan Jauvtis ( nathanj) — Mar 09, 2017 05:05PM
Fellow riders:

It is with great excitement that I announce the launch of our equity crowdfunding campaign. Over the last seven years, I have been developing the next generation of electric mopeds, and now we are on the cusp of something very cool.

I built an epic team, starting with Creature Zach "Lee" Levenberg, to prove the concept of the M1, and we subsequently brought these cool-ass peds to production. You may have tried some earlier generations, but I'd like to invite you to try the latest and greatest. The M1 is a hill-climbing, zero-emitting, fun-ass moto that has an even lower barrier to ridership than mopeds!

If you are not in a position to invest, but you believe in what we are doing, we'd appreciate you sharing our campaign with your network. I'm happy to answer any questions you have either through email (nate@mondaymotorbikes.com), or you can reach me by cell (415-722-543).

Thanks for your support.

The ETA is a carbon-neutral provider of vehicle breakdown, bicycle and travel insurance for the environmentally concerned consumer.
How it all began

The Environmental Transport Association was established in 1990 as an ethical provider of green, reliable travel services. Twenty-six years later, we continue to put concern for our environment at the heart of all we do.

In 1994 we founded a charity, the ETA Trust, to campaign for a more sustainable, safe, and healthy transport future. For every cycle insurance policy, vehicle breakdown policy and travel insurance policy we sell, we make a donation to the ETA trust.
Volta: The world’s most discreet electric bicycle:
https://www.eta.co.uk/2017/03/10/volta- ... c-bicycle/

Starts:
The Volta is a bicycle of contradictions. First off, it’s an electric bike, but with a battery and motor are so discreet you wouldn’t know they were there. Furthermore, its aspiration to be a light cargo bike is countered by sleek looks and a weight of only 15 kg. On top of these attributes, the Volta packs technological features such as integrated LED lights and a GPS tracker to help protect against theft. No surprise then that the Volta has already smashed its crowd-funding target on Kickstarter, where it can be ordered for $1,499 (£1,230).
Looks like another WIN for the Volta. :mrgreen:

... and ends:
Electric bicycles battery theft

If the battery for your electric bicycle is secured with a key (as most are), or requires any type of tool to remove, then it is covered against theft by our cycle insurance policy.

https://www.antheamissy.com/moar-fat-ti ... indiegogo/
We love an electric bike and crowd funding networks such as Indiegogo cannot be praised enough for providing an arena which encourages and supports innovations. If not for crowd funding it’s unlikely we’d ever see a majority of the products featured an any related network. Electric vehicles are a huge growth area and hundreds of companies around the world are shaping the future of transportation by way crowd funding. The Santa Monica team producing the Moar electric bicycle has raised over $359,000 after requesting $30,000. There’s still fourteen days before the campaign ends so heavily discounted margins are on offer for early backers.

If you’ve ever dreamt of commuting to work on nothing more than a bicycle then the Moar Folding Electric Bike is for you. Powered by either a 500W rear hub or a 750W mid-drive motor, it uses a 48W battery, which slides in easily in the rear, to allow you to have more than enough juice to get to and from work without ever having to worry about recharging it. What’s more, that very same battery also serves to power not just the motor but the integrated signals, lights, and LED dashboard as well.

E-bike industry reacts to government's e-vehicle grant scheme:
http://www.bikebiz.com/news/read/e-bike ... eme/020889
It appears that their thought process has not moved on, despite data from other countries showing that it can work.
“We’re very disappointed the Government has not yet seen fit to provide grants for the private or commercial purchase of e-bikes.
... it's a shame that the grant scheme is not available to those for which an e-bike would be their only way of cycling.
The OLEV grant scheme is a short-sighted and poorly thought out concept. The response of ‘There are no diesel powered cycles to incentivise people away from’ is as foolish as the myopic focus on electric vehicles.

"A change of clothes and other working equipment can be carried to work much more easily with an eBike. The weight is simply less relevant. In the US, every car is used to transport 1.3 people on average. In relation to cities and their transport system, this situation is simply not tenable. eBikes would soon solve the problem. And I'm already seeing lots of people using eBikes. Their numbers will keep growing and will solve this problem." - Fisher

Gizmag has a new look and a new name.

Why?
For almost 15 years we've worked hard to keep you up to date with the rise of technology and its impact on our daily lives, and that has led us into new frontiers.

Our first issue featured a ground-breaking 3 megapixel camera, a radical mobile phone-PDA hybrid and a look at life with Apple's revolutionary iPod MP3 player, but these days we're about more than gadgets.
Bamboo e-bike is ready for the streets of Bedrock:
http://newatlas.com/calfee-design-bamboo-e-bike/48364/

Includes:
Currently on display at the North American Handmade Bicycle Show in Salt Lake City, it features a Bafang motor capable of 1,500 watts, powered by a 54-volt/250-Wh battery pack. It also has a dynamo hub in the front wheel, which generates electricity for the 12-volt LED lighting system.

In the rear wheel is a highly-geared Sturmey-Archer hub transmission. Working in concert with the Bafang, that makes a motor-assisted top pedalling speed of 40 mph (64 km/h) possible. How often you take it to that speed is obviously going to effect its battery range, but perhaps a more pressing matter is, will it be legal?
... and:
Designed to be compact and nimble in urban environments, the e-bike also has a suspension fork and seatpost, plus 20-inch BMX wheels (with bamboo spokes!) and a handlebar stem that allows the bars to be turned 90 degrees when the bike is parked – this means that they could sit flat against the wall of a small apartment, where space is at a premium. And at a weight of approximately 50 lb (23 kg), it could be carried up a set of stairs without too much effort.

Would love to see the Gizmag/New Atlas offices... See whether they still use any of that "stone age" furniture w/wooden bits.

(They say:)
Palo Alto Online (Palo Alto, CA), launched September 25, 1996 and redesigned in September 2000, continues the online tradition of the Palo Alto Weekly, the award-winning weekly newspaper that was the first newspaper in the United States to publish on the World Wide Web in January, 1994.
(Wiki: Palo Alto is a charter city located in the northwest corner of Santa Clara County, California, in the San Francisco Bay Area of the United States.)

Shop Talk: Mike's Cafe expands; scooter showroom to open:
https://www.paloaltoonline.com/news/201 ... om-to-open

Includes:
VOICE COMMAND SCOOTER ... An Israeli company has chosen downtown Palo Alto for its first-ever showroom to feature its new, self-folding, electric scooters. "The opening of our showroom in Palo Alto is a transformative moment for us," said Ori Dadoosh, CEO of Green Ride. "Our team has put in so much work and countless hours perfecting the (scooter's) design and advanced technology. We are excited to begin sharing it with the world," he said. The Green Ride store, which recently opened at 435 University Ave., sells the 55-pound scooters for $3,000 to $5,000 each, depending on the battery range, explained Dadoosh. Calling the eco-friendly scooter a "luxury product," Dadoosh said, "You can carry it just like a suitcase. Then you can either press a button or you can use voice commands to unfold it. Unfolding it takes seven seconds." Dadoosh sees a crucial need for this type of personal vehicle because of traffic and parking problems. "Instead of looking for a parking place for your scooter, you fold it up and take it with you," he said. The scooter is named "inu," the Japanese word for dog, a faithful companion that's always by your side. Dadoosh said the scooter can travel at speeds up to 15 miles per hour. But for those who need an electric scooter immediately, there's a bit of a lag. The store is only accepting pre-orders. The first delivery is expected in September.

Seen... elsewhere:
Green Ride's INU, the Digital Personal Vehicle (DPV), is a connected electric scooter for urban transport. With a robotic, automatic folding mechanism, the scooter is easy to carry to work or a café.

INU is electric, fully digital, and fully connected with GSM, BT, and Wi-Fi onboard. Its digital personal platform features entertainment, maintenance, security, and social capabilities. This DPV upholds luxury car standards in terms of design, comfort, safety, and performance.

The scooter responds to voice commands and can be used for up to 25 mi on one charge.

Frank Bohle: ‘2016 Results Show Expected Pause in Sales Growth’:
http://www.bike-eu.com/sales-trends/nie ... h-10129267

Starts:
REICHSHOF, Germany – Schwable tyres owner Ralf Bohle GmbH reported a small decrease in sales of 5.5% to 171 million euro in 2016. This result is in line with the bicycle market developments in Germany, as Bike Europe reported last Tuesday. For Frank Bohle, MD of Ralf Bohle, it was the “expected pause in sales growth.”
Includes:
Market trends

Frank Bohle is looking forward to the new bicycle season with full confidence. “We see several new trends which should get more people interested in cycling. For me particularly sporty electric bikes as well as the new ‘gravel bikes’ are the two leading trends.
... and ends:
“The trend of expanding sales of sporty electric bikes, and e-MTBs in particular is not new in the market but its effect is growing rapidly.” Schwalbe’s managing director sees a growing interest from younger customers. “We see more and more cross-overs between the sports categories and good-looking e-bikes. That makes these e-bikes interesting for today’s youth scene, which previously tended to laugh at this category.”
WATT? Not laughing now??? Hehe...

(Wiki:)
The Wisconsin State Journal is a daily newspaper published in Madison, Wisconsin by Lee Enterprises. The newspaper, the second largest in Wisconsin, is primarily distributed in a 19 county region in south-central Wisconsin. As of July 2012, the Wisconsin State Journal had an average weekday circulation of 83,000 and an average Sunday circulation of 118,000.
More space and continued retail enthusiasm for Crazy Lenny:

Begins:
Age was catching up with Len Mattioli until he discovered a bicycle with an electric motor.
:)
On Wednesday, Mattioli is scheduled to open a 12,000-square-foot showroom and service center at 6017 Odana Road. The new location is next to the bike path, has room outside for a mountain bike test path and is just a few hundred feet from his original 4,000-square-foot store. That location is jammed with over 120 bikes, leaving little room for customers or service space.

... and article includes a short YT vid:


... and notes:
Mattioli, who lives on 10 acres in Fitchburg, came out of retirement in 2013 to open what he initially called Len’s Electric Bikes.

Since that time he has sold more than 4,300 bikes...
