Cannondale goes electric


Sure if you are as into cycling as I am, you may see electric bikes as a bike for fat lazy people or elderlies but I think that would be missing the point. Electric bikes are not a bicycle replacement and are not aimed as such. Their targets are mostly cars. While I think real human powered bikes are better even for commuting, electric bikes are still a lot better than cars, motorcycles and even buses as far as cutting traffic density and pollution. Depending on where you live, where you work, they can be faster too... Here is how Cannondale and Bosch see electric bikes. This one is still a prototype but more normal looking ones are the real thing.

If you got a chance to ride this thing you would understand completely. It was incredible. Like a rocket it would take off almost instantaneously!
