If only, new ebike regs California

Postby geebee » Mon Oct 12, 2015 7:56 pm

The type 3 may help move a lot of cars and scooters off the road, I would love to use one of my trikes as a mini electric car, never going to happen in Oz though.

They already have this in europe;

S pedelec, it is a pedelec bike without the 25km restriction, but the bike needs to be registered and I believe a helmet worn.

They are normal capable of 40km about.

Not really the s ebikes are limited to 1kw, it looks like the California ones are going for no kw limit!
But they are not bicycles anymore, but as I said in my post they would make a nice light electric vehicle ie. car or motorbike.

This is a good way to develop technology - Keep in mind you don't need a crystal ball to look 30 to 50 years into the future, and even with the most positive of perspectives, increasing powered cycle use is a given over that timeframe. Concentrating a lot of patents in that region while pushing things like the TPP means they can use this technology to build new industries that won't appear for the next 10 years.
