Has anyone else seen this?
I am not promoting this company, I just think that what that fellow is doing is gonna open some eyes to alternative transportation like electric bicycles.
He is biking across Canada, and figures on only about $14.00 worth of electricity!!
He has already gone across almost 3 provinces, which for our southern neighbors, he has crossed basically Washington, Montana, and is partway across North Dakota!!
I find that just awesome, not just the adventure of the trip itself, but on an electric bike as well. To check his progress see : http://www.endless-sphere.com/forums...st=0&sk=t&sd=a
Yes, I saw that on ebikes.ca
That's pretty awesome!
I was thinkinng of making a trip from Toronto to Montreal on a custom tandem electric bike and when I heard of this exploit I was even more revved.
This is a huge eye opener to electric bikes as an alternative mode of transport.
Cool and exciting stuff!
met justin today in ontario
nice guy...can't believe he is here in ontario
this should show people the reliability of ebikes
and how cheap you could cross this country(or any)
best of luck bud
i will be ordering my 53xx from ebikes.ca when he gets back
Pretty neat bike, but, I question his use of regen. From what I read, the regen capability actually lowered the output of the batteries a bit. It also adds complexity and a small bit of weight.
I can see where it might be helpful on some long downhills in the rockies, so maybe using it to get over them is a good idea. But for the other 4-5K kilometers, I think he would be better ditching it.
