The VELLO BIKE+ can fold into a suitcase size device, irrespective of the fact that it weighs up to 26 lb. It also has the capacity to recharge its battery while being used.
One cannot help but acknowledge the tremendous progress being made in the electric bicycle sector. Almost on a weekly basis, a new lighter, yet more functional version if the electric bicycle is released. VELLO is the new ground breaking innovation in this industry; specifically because of its ability to recharge itself while being used and fold into easily carried size.
As disclosed by VELLO BIKE+ makers on their Kickstarter page, the folding bike will be able to recharge itself during use. They also disclosed that the bike would sell for less than US$1800 (Early Bird price). This implies that this device which seems fairly priced can offer unlimited range because of its “recharge while being used” feature.
This product has a frame and 20 inch wheels that can give its user the feel of a full-sized bike and even more advantageous is the fact that one can fold and carry it between rides and for storage purposes, it can be folded to fit completely into a regular sized suitcase. Its 26 lb weight means it’s really light when compared to other electric bikes. It is powered through a 250W internal hub motor that features an integral battery pack which is reasonably cheaper because of its chain and derailleur configuration. This bike comes in varieties, leaving buyers with options to choose from, including disc brakes or caliper as well as titanium frame or chromoly frame.
The self-balancing hoverboards, loved by several superstars such as Missy Elliot and Justin Bieber are banned on Australian roads.
Duncan Gay, the NSW minister for roads is concerned that the sheer number of these gadgets — popularly referred to as self-balancing scooters and balance boards — likely to be unwrapped this festive period.He released a statement on Tuesday stating that the gadget is not allowed on any road or footpath and can only be used indoors.
For those that don’t know what this device is, Gay explains that they are the new contraptions that appear like a skateboard with 2 wheels and no handle.
As a matter of fact, you could incur a cash fine for riding these hoverboards on a Sydney highway. There is a penalty of A$319 (US$229) for riding them on footpaths and a fine of A$637 (US$458) for riding them on a Sydney highway.
Australia is taking after the United Kingdom on this. The London Metropolitan Police issue a statement a couple of months ago let people know that it is not legal to ride these hoverboards in public.
I do not wish to be the Christmas Grinch, however, I want everyone to understand that the new gadget are not really safe as explained by Gay. He stated that even though these boards could travel at 26 kilometers/hour, they do not have perfectly effective breaks and have no warning lights.
We are uncertain if anyone has incurred the fine as of now in the state; however, the police have been contacted to make comments on the issue at hand.
So let's get this straight:
We're paying oil companies the high prices they demand for gasoline, and with that money they turn around and buy out our democracy, with which they get a 14113% return on investment in unprecedented tax breaks.
I don't know about you, but I think it's about time to switch to electricity.
