Which Electric Bike Should I Buy?

RADROVER

Episode 1614

Grant from St. Paul, Minnesota

Grant wants to get an electric bike. Leo says they are great to get around, and he can pedal them. But they aren't cheap at $1500 or more. He can electrify an old bike, but that's almost as much. Leo's wife likes the RadRover with big fat tires.

From the chatroom - Check out Staton.com for electrifying a bike.

There's also a recumbent trike called the TerraTrike.

The Giz Wiz ... eBikin'

 Giz Wiz

Episode 1588

Yes, an e-bike small and light enough to fit in a backpack. That's what Smacircle says they've created with their model S1. And people are really interested. On Indiegogo, their project raised nearly $560,000.00. It's built with carbon fiber and although it weighs only about 16 pounds it's strong enough to carry a weight of up to 220lbs/ 100kg. It folds to fit into a standard backpack with the tallest dimension of the S1 being 19 inches. Or you can carry it easily by holding onto the saddle.

CES 2018 Recap

Episode 1453

Leo did not go to CES this year, and he's glad he didn't because it's filling up with insignificant junky stuff that looks like people desperate to find something interesting. There was a Gameboy Nintendo remade by a Chinese company called "HyperKin." Samsung did not announce the Galaxy S9, but said it'll probably be announced in March. There were some leaks about the S9 that make it sound like it's mostly the same as the S8, but it'll have a new camera that will do dual apertures with a single lens. Samsung did announce a Bluetooth speaker that aims at your ears without headphones.
