EcoSpeed – high performance electric bicycle kit


EcoSpeed. Range up to 100 miles, cruise speeds of 20 – 25 mph, burst speeds up to 40 mph with wind aid.

 With the EcoSpeed EMD, a recumbent bike has enough performance to match a car in around town driving. That means you can forget about high gas prices — you can go over 500 miles on a dollars worth of electricity. That’s even up to 20 times better than an electric car or gas scooter. Electric bikes are legally bikes and can be ridden in bike lanes and on bike trails in most locations. That means big safety advantages over motorcycles and scooters because you don’t have to mix with automobiles. Or, get caught in traffic.


  • I have been researching electric bikes too, but I can’t see them catch on in a big way as vehicles to commute to work. Nor are they a great idea for doing your grocery shopping on weekends..

  • Well, I find a normal bike with pedals works just great for the commute, and is an excellent shopping vehicle as there are no parking worries/costs. I mostly use small shops and markets so have my bike next to me as I buy stuff and then the fruit/veg/whatever goes straight into the bags on my bike. Grocery shopping on a weekend isn’t a great idea as the shops can be a bit busy and I’ve got better things to be doing.

    Electric bikes are a great idea if you’re older, less able in some way, live somewhere very hilly, want to haul heavy loads or young kids, or are just plain lazy! And for commuting and shopping they are pretty much perfect.
