Saving Money, Saving the Environment

ECOPEDTORONTO — a division of Midland International Inc, released the City45 E-bike exclusively in Wal-Mart stores this week. The City45, a 500W electric power assisted bicycle, is the second generation of e-bikes released by Ecoped and has been improved for increased reliability, smoother and quieter rides, and aesthetic customization. Much sleeker than its parent, the Hybrid 45e, the City45e can travel up to 60km on a single charge making it an ideal solution for students and commuters traveling short distances.

“What’s amazing about the Ecoped City45 is that it is a one-time purchase; when you purchase a moped, you have to pay for the moped, then pay for gas, and then pay for insurance. When you buy an Ecoped, you just need to pay for the Ecoped. You don’t pay for gas, you don’t pay for insurance, and you don’t pay for parking. With this product, you may even be eligible for a government tax credit.

All you need is to be over 16 years old, wear a DOT approved helmet, and you can ride the City45 anywhere a bicycle can. You save yourself the hassle a motorized vehicle, or scooter would give you, while giving a little back to the environment” said Jonathan Cho, one of the representatives from Ecoped.

The City45 features a 500W brushless motor with front and rear brake drums, and rear electronic ABS brakes. Reaching a top speed of 32 km/hr the City45 charges in 6-8 hrs and can travel between 50-60km/charge, which translates to less than one cent per 10 kilometers. The e-bike also features LED headlights, tail lights, and turn lights, and can carry a combined passenger and cargo weight of 125kg.

The City45 weighs only 65kg, 20kg less than the Hybrid 45e and 15kg less than the competitors, and measures 1090mm (H) x 620mm (W) x 1870mm (L). It is currently available in most Wal-Mart locations across Canada and can be found for purchase for approximately $998.00. Find more information on the City45e at ecoped.ca

Electric Bike Conversion Kit

Most people who own a normal bike would face a dilemma wherein, they would find it really difficult to decide whether to set in for a new bike altogether or get an electric bike conversion kit and upgrade their existing bike to an electric bike. Although, purchasing a electric bike conversion kit and designing your bike around it, might seem like a daunting task, it is not that bad after all. Considering the fact that with your own electric bike conversion kit and own design, you can end up getting a better and more personalized bike than everyone else in the market, setting in for your own electric motor kit is not a bad option at all. Besides, you would end up saving from two aspects- first, you will not have to worry about disposing of your existing bike and secondly, you will not have to pay for the new one.

While setting out for a electric bike conversion kit of your choice, it is elementary that you know the law of the land. The wattage of the motor, the kind of power it outputs and the speed (RPM) at which it rotates, are some of the things that need to be adhered to. Apart from choosing the right kind of motor kit, choosing the right kind of battery is also very important. A lithium-ion battery kit is what will decide how far you can go, the heavier the battery, the longer the distance you would be able to cover and consequently, higher will be the price. Besides, the kind of battery (Li batteries or some other form) is also important.
There are some other accessories that you might include- headlights, alarms, racks, carriers- but all these should be dependant upon your usage.
