Re: electronic bicycle?
yeah me too cruiser. I dont like my electric bicycle either.
the electronic bicycle though would eliminate the chain drive, you would be pedaling a generator instead. I think the supercapacitors would augment the power to allow you to make the hills.
perhaps if they could keep the chain drive, but make it so that each stroke generates electicity and powers the motor, that would give you more power per stroke.
hmm. NAHH.. that would require a new chainring setup, and we would be seeing guys pedaling a bike at 60mph, maybe a governor or a shut off after a certian speed. plus you would still have to pedal it to move.
