    Taiwan Contract manufacturers make most of the bikes,
    regardless of the brand on the frame.

    The difference is stipulated in the Contract.


    If you have the credit line, and order enough, units,
    'your name here' is applied ..

    Mercedes Benz created SMover .... a computer controlled automatic gear selection bicycle. The computer is powered by batteries that is charged by the internal hub dynamo inside the front hub.

    ~ Audi e Bike - A bicycle that runs at 80 kmph .. .. .. !!

    Audi unveiled an extremely emotion-inspiring sports machine, the Audi e-bike Wörthersee at Wörthersee in Carinthia, Austria. The prototype cycle combines an electric drive and muscle power. Head of Design Wolfgang Egger comments: "As a high-performance e-bike for sports and trick cycling, it features the Audi core competences of design, ultra, e-tron and connect." The Audi e-bike Wörthersee puts in its first major appearance at this year's Wörthersee Tour, the 31st meet for Audi, VW, Seat and Skoda fans; trial biker Julien Dupont and downhill specialist Petra Bernhard will demonstrate their stunts and streetbike skills.

    As a high performance e-bike for sports and trick cycling, it features the Audi core competences of design, ultra, e-tron and connect." Wolfgang Egger, Head of Design said. The bike looks dynamic, but is also designed to be functional. All design elements are secondary to the technical features. The airy frame boasts a low centre of gravity and a compact overall volume. In this way, the e- bike is agile. The lithium-ion battery is incorporated into the frame and needs 2.5 hours to fully charge and is easily replaceable.

    The frame and the swinging arm that holds the back wheel are made of carbon fibre-reinforced polymer (CFRP). The same material is used for the 26" wheels, which feature broad flat spokes for an optimized transmission of pedal power. The signature Audi LED lights are also present at the front and back of the bike. For extreme tricks and stunts the seat can be lowered to run flush with the frame itself. At the press of a button, the seat then rises up and the biker can adopt a comfortable position. The electric motor is located at the lowest point on the frame and drives the bottom bracket shaft directly. The maximum torque delivered to the rear wheel is 250Nm. The electric motor generates a maximum output of around 3bhp. The complete bike excluding electrical components weighs 11kg.

    Lets not forget the tractor mfg. Several years ago you could get a John Deere bike. And guess what----it was green.

    Honestly, I think the money would be better spent on a scooter or a motorcycle.

    Hmm as an American biker who appreciates practical bikes I'm amazed how the big bike companies sell 95% of their stuff that thoughtlessly includes none of the features auto buyers would expect: lights, fenders, good brakes, adequate gearing, comfy ride etc.

    Slightly off-topic (or perhaps tangetial) but was anyone else surprised that, for all the advertising time they bought during the Tour de France telecast, not once did Bridgestone mention the fact that they used to make bicycles!

    Regions Bank had a long-running series of tv ads featuring green bikes (I never quite understood the connection between bikes & banking)--I googled the Regions bikes & discovered they weren't sold...seems like a cross-marketing opportunity but I guess not profitable enough compared to gouging taxpayers for bailouts.
