This is a link to an article by Electric Bike.com. It’s a great website & a very timely article. Two weeks ago I was looking for just this type of product. After about an hour of searching I decided I would just have to make one of these things myself. Have a look. Electric Bike.com is not a retail site so you won’t get bogged down with a bunch of stuff you’re not interested in.

For me the Electric Bike.com. is a little bit like the car magazines I used to read 20 years ago. I’d read “Motor Trend”, “Car & Driver”,  ”Automobile”, etc.  for information as well as entertainment. Well here is an informational article about triangle frame cases. Anybody that has ever converted or built from scratch an E-Bike has longed for the perfect battery case. Well here is quite a few of them. There is simply no better place to put this much weight on a bicycle than between the handle bars & the seat. There are some Triangle bags available on the market. The Falcon EV is one that come to mind. But even the best of them still look like a battery bag.

How’s that for a load of batteries?

Go ahead & get your self a dose of inspiration. Take a look at Electric Bike.com & then save them in your “Favorites”. . It’s a great site with great information & it has inspired me many times over the short two years they’ve been around.

I’m sorry about this post but I just couldn’t help myself. I was looking for some clip art on bicycle tools. Specifically the bicycle tire pump on your left when I ran across the bike pictures shown below. These photos are from Stock.xchng.com.

I hope you enjoy these and I’d love to see Your’s.

E-Bikes & This n’ That

electric bikes
I haven’t done much writing in the last few weeks so I started browsing the Internet for some inspiration. Perhaps something new and original like “The Revenge of the Electric Bike”. Well alas no such luck. However I am continually encouraged and intrigued by the e-bike markets on-going progress and some of the nifty new ideas I so often come across.

On the on-going progress of e-bikes  side of things is the time and money some of the major players in the transportation industry are putting into developing e-bike technology. Please don’t mistake this as a belief that the future of the e-bike is in the hands of these captain’s of industry. Quite the contrary. However, it does show that the the e-bike has come a long way from that of a passing curiosity or just another recreational plaything.  E-bikes are real transportation and are here to stay.

When companies like Daimler Benz, Volkswagon and Bosch dump hundreds of millions of dollars into the research and development of e-bikes and ebike drive systems we can be sure that e-bikes are more than just a passing fad. Have a look at some of these prototypes and products.
