Default world's Lightest Electric Bicycle?


Ride like the wind, then lug it up a few flights — no sweat
BY DIANE ROMMEL




12 SEPTEMBER 2016

Electric bikes have plenty of pluses — being powered by electricity
chief among them — but one consistent issue has been weight: Add a
motor and a battery to a bike, and you're looking at some necessary
gains. And cyclist will tell you that carrying a few extra pounds
really matters.



That's what makes the arrival of the Model E from Vermont manufacturer
Budnitz Bicycles such impressive news: It's been trimmed of any fat,
and the company is touting it as the lightest-ever electric bike.



The frame is made from a strong-but-light 3AL 2.5V titanium alloy (or
4130 Cro Moly Steel), but the real weight savings are in the
electrical components, which come in a 250-watt, Italian-made
all-in-one hub. That system can add up to 15 miles per hour to your
ride.

The range? Up to 100 miles. Pedal backwards or coast and you'll help
power the system.



Nothing about this bike is cheap — neither the components nor the
price. But if you're looking for the crème de la crème of electric
bicycles, this one's worth considering.

Interesting, but they are annoyingly coy about how the batteries charge.
