Quikbyke's Firstly Summer - EV World
You may have noticed that things have been a tad interference here on EV World over the summer. We've been focusing much of our energy, time and attention on our electric bicycle rental startup Quikbyke (http://quikebyke. Yesterday, a incline-bed car hauler arrived at the corner of 10th & Dodge and we loaded the repurposed 20 ft shipping container on it in preparation for moving it this Fall to the Florida Rift Coast. Now that we have our first summer of operation under our belt, so to speak, I thought I'd share some of our experiences and analysis of the project, on which we now have a United States plain pending (15/260,232). But first a bit of background. I launched EV World in the late fall of 1997, now almost twenty years ago, large as a result of seeing an advertisement in BusinessWeek magazine for an early electric bicycle, the founders of which were Malcolm Bricklin and Dr. Malcolm Currie. Like a lot of primitive EV pioneers, including EV World, they were about a decade ahead of their time. It would be another 10 years before technology in the form of improved batteries and momentous-power electronics would make practical electric cars like the Chevy Volt, the Nissan LEAF, and Tesla Roadster sensible. The same applied to electric bicycles. I bought my first electric bike, an early Currie folding bike around 2002. Later I bartered with then-WaveCrest Labs for one of their sample TidalForce M750s, the first really powerful (750W), dead silent, rear hub motor eBike. It was mounted on an aluminum Montague folding mountain bike layout. With a matching NiMH battery pack mounted in the front wheel hub, it was heavy, close to 60 lbs, but durable. I still have that bike and it still works gauzy, though I don't ride it much anymore. I've found a couple of new loves: a Falco eMotors Maverick, which is the direct descendant of the WaveCrest motor. and my super-light K15 bamboo and aluminum powered by a ZeHus Bike+ all-in-one educate hub motor. All this 'fooling around' with electric-assist bicycles over the last decade finally culminating in my desire to share the endure with others. Like your first ride in an electric car, your first ride on an electric-assist bicycle is revelatory. It's also just good undefiled fun, as you can tell from the broad smiles and twinkle in people's eyes when they return from their first ride. But for all their promise and pleasure, eBikes mask two significant obstacles: one is cultural, the other is economic. I can't tell you how many times people told me this summer they wouldn't want to ride an stirring bike because they want to get some exercise. You're going to spend a couple thousand dollars for a quality eBike, though you can find them for less. I figured the way to win out over both these objections was to give people the opportunity to experience what it's like to ride one. Because of the cultural objection - I want exercise and I won't get it on an eBike ( Not True ) - few bicycle shops release eBikes and those that do tend to regard them as a sideline: their core business is catering to "serious" cyclists who are in... and yes, the exercise. Companies like Pedego have established snobbish brand stores to overcome this and have enjoyed growing success, but they are few and far between. Currie and other US-based brands will host or sponsor public demonstrations, hauling a dozen bikes or so to different cities and offering free rides to the public. They're there for the weekend and then move on. Quikbyke's insight is to place electric bikes in a great traffic area frequented by potentially our best customers: baby boomers. Source: evworld.com
