PiCycle The Electric Bike

Even for a bicycle this is a very clever design, but here they push it even further – they made it into an electric bike.  I never drove a hybrid, but just recently I drove the Lexus CT for a day and totally fell in love with it.  On the downhill, the speed of the car is reduced, charging your battery and reducing your brake wear.  This electric bicycle also contains a similar brake regenerative technology.  Most electric bicycles I’ve seen don’t have that.   Can’t wait to try one out.   I’d wish the city would start a program where one can rent these from say the San Francisco Castro area, ride down Market Street, and end up at the Embarcadero – this would make going to work very enjoyable.

And I just want to mention, these PiCycles don’t come cheap.  The base models start at $2,500.00USD.
