Electric bikes are a handy way to get around town. Get that hipster look without all the work. Of course it’s a bummer when they run out of juice. The Self Charging Electric Bike is one that you can count on to always have a charge.
Self-charging may be a bit of a misnomer. This bike doesn’t have a perpetual motion engine on it or anything like that. When it runs out of charge, it can be recharged by peddling, you know, like a normal bike. Your hard work gives life back to the lithium-ion battery. Don’t worry though, it can also be charged in five and a half hours via AC adapter.
This little beauty goes up to 16 MPH and can be ridden for up to 18 miles on a full charge if only using the electric but you if alternate, say, peddle when the road is smooth and use the motor for hills, then you can get up to 28 mile rides. Which is perfect when you want to get some exercise in but not too much. The Self Charging Electric Bike is $3,800.
