Electric bikes - a popular form of transport in Beijing, such a bloom of electric bike usage I haven't seen in any other Asian metropolis. For all the struggle for Europeans green world and reduction of waste production, incredible fees to combat pollution, they use are not the full potential of electric energy, there I have not seen so many elektrobayk, do not remember them in the streets of the same Amsterdam.
It turns, that it is in this issue, around the city - green technology in China ahead of the rest. At a conference, Chinese Vice-Minister of Construction, said, that there 120 millions and only moved, that electric bicycles and motorcycles. Of Hutong to work and to Temple to meal, rushes million Chinese, on electric bicycles.
If we consider, that the path from home to work in many takes not much too kilometers, then in the presence of an extensive network of bicycle paths, for a large part of the citizens in metropolitan areas, such a mode of transport would be a great solution.
So, again say, in China on this form of transport is moving almost as many people, how many lives across Russia. These bikes are not noisy, do not pollute the air with exhaust gases, and if desired, can never be accelerated battery, but just to pedal.

A quick search on the internet tells me, that in Russia the production of bicycles and spare parts are no. If you compare prices on the websites of Chinese manufacturers, где, eg, electric bike standard Cost 350 – 450 dollars, with prices on the websites of our bicycle shop, The price for the easiest of starts elektrobayk 600 dollars - it becomes clear, that in Russia there is simply no such production, correct me, if it is not.
Our stores buy Chinese components or model and realize we have a premium for shipping and pocket yourself something put.

Many complain, that Russian raw power, no production and so on, but such technology is not too complicated, the Internet has a lot of material, when people changed their usual electric bikes, hands.
True, they also bought components from China, so it is necessary to establish such production we. If all these stories about the transition from oil and gas to the innovative and high-tech economy is not just empty talk, it must be on the first line of the, who are these technologies provides.
Oil and gas companies are holding back progress, fear of losing the resource, that feeds them. But such inventions rather quickly reduce demand for our energy and once they invented, need to reorient our economy and develop in the direction of alternative technologies and to create even more. Hard to imagine what the die new elektrobayk, somewhere in Shanghai or Пекине.
Millions, which can then lose, better now to put on the equipment manufacturing, development of infrastructure (bicycle paths and plenty of parking), points recycling of waste batteries. Along the way to cut costs on the environment and possible improvements in terms of transport capacity. Certainly, You can do this kind of transport stylish and as beautiful, как например, old models “Wasp”, like a new life Scooter “Riga” or “Carpathians”, because the motor can be equipped not only tiddly bike, but moped, and scooter.
Now, about the characteristics of: presently developed several kinds of batteries – a lead-acid, Nickel-Metal Hydride, Li-ion (Lithium-ion), LiPo (Lithium Polymer), LiFePO4 (lithium-iron-phosphate). For all the differences of technology, models, which are sold on the market, usually indicated charging time 4-6 hours.
Battery lasts for 25 – 40 but you can ride on such a bike, depending on the model. Travel speed on the motor, on the average 25 – 30 км/ч, which is good for protection against speeders (although there are still people, who appoint themselves powerful motors, to 50 kilometers or more). In modern models have different modes of transportation, an electric motor, charging mode (The battery is charging, when you pedal) and Hybrid (Electrical + Pedal).
Used to be “elektrovenik”, and now “elektrovelik”!
Nothing complicated about, to effortlessly get to work, put your battery on charge, and in the evening to go back in the same comfortable way. Yes, as well as on any open truck, bicycle or motorcycle, you do not get warm in a warm car, but in the summer and spring and autumn, This type of transport is well suited. And for southern areas, where most of the year, he just needs some heat. Especially, when a bike can be folded, take with you on the subway or easily drag into the house.
Look at the examples and models on Chinese websites, I think you will be impressed, and police made electric bike. And who acquired, смотрите, yet it would be good not to forget to bring the battery to recharge, Beijing told me, this is the main, that steal from elektrobayk.
If someone after reading the article appeared more specific ideas on the organization of production, and investment in the project at any stage, пока “Chinese are not taken over the world”, welcome to the section contacts!
