Starting up with a new concept for an Electric Bike, we started by breaking the mold a bit. A rough CAD rendering below shows the rear powertrain, reserving the body exclusively for battery power and control. What jumps out, of course is the hub-less concept, eliminating some rotating mass. A series of smaller motors are […]
