Everyone knows that one of the most harmful and un-green of the things that we do to the environment is drive our gas-guzzling cars everywhere we go. We complain about gas prices while we are driving our cars that get 8 miles to the gallon. One of the greatest ways to reduce your impact is to stop using your car! I know, it sounds impossible. It actually is rather easy when you use a different form of transportation.

The people generally have an apprehension why the electric bike is fitted with pedals, even though the motor makes the vehicle to run. But there are modern electric bikes such as Salisbury LPX, which is feasible of performing three types of operations like normal cycling using the pedal. The motor also operates simultaneously and makes the peddling easier and softer, thus freeing the rider from fatigue.

In motor- only types, you can ride twisting the grips leaving the motor to take the burden. Hence this class of bike is very useful and dependable. You can pedal an electric bike normally in plain grounds. You can pedal-assist while the motor is used for climbs when the cyclist even feels that he is pedal driving.

You can ride in a total rest with the motor thus making the electric bike a slower type of scooter. With more and more advancements in battery technology, the electric bikes are becoming more popular. They are more environment-friendly than a motor car.

Step 1: electric bicycle

<p>Did you consider ROTATING all these sideways images mate ?</p>
I didn't see any &quot;instructions&quot; in your write up about the electric bike that is shown. What I did see is what seems to be a commentary on the virtues of electric vehicles. Another observation that really stood out was your statement that cars get 8 mpg. If only this was true, the switch to electric/hybrid vehicles would be a no-brainer. Beyond that it gets rather political, which I won't get into here as it is not the place for such discussions. But I agree with rickharris though, some specifics on the components and design intent would have been nice
you seriously cannot figure out how he built this???? the pictures are pretty self explanatory.
nice. maybe i want to build it. but i dont know how. looks very difficult
Some instructions on the website called &quot;Instructables&quot; would be kind of cool. You think?
I know what an electric bike is, I KNOW why it's useful, I want to know, HOW YOU BUILT IT ! what did you use, why did you use it? How well does it work? Would you change anything?
Is that bike made out of drift wood?
Some information would be useful - like motor size, where did it come from, battery pack, wiring diagram. Speed controller.
