Ue A BIKE FOR COMMUTERS
Designed by Gabriel Wartofsky to be attractive to all potential commuters.
It has a gender-neutral look with a low step-over height.
It’s another chainless e-bike. In this case driven by a shaft to rear hub.
The (small) battery is hidden in the frame.
It is light for an e-bike at only 12kg.
It folds easily, without a chain in the way, and is easily carried. It is a practical e-bike for riding to or from train or bus and taking it on the train or bus.
It’s not in production yet but some start up money has been raised on Kickstarter and is in “pilot construction” by Conscious Commuter in Oregon (quite a centre for eco-environment conscienseness and e-bike development).
It’s projected to cost about $3000.
A limitation seems to be having a small battery – therefore small range.
