Great Incintinve To Ride Electric Bike

Have you ever wanted to ride an electric bike? Ever want to own your very own? Well now is the best time ever!

There are government incentives to purchase alternative fuel vehicles, prices of EV's are becoming more competitive every day, and one of the leading electric bike conversion kit manufacturers is even giving away free e-bike kits!

But why are they doing this? Are they insane? Are they trying to run themselves out of business? I have no idea! Your guess is as good as mine! But here's my theory.

It's no secret that electric vehicles are not the most popular vehicles on the road right now. I mean everyone has heard a joke or two about the power and bad a$$-ness of the Prius. Heck, they even make fun of them in movies! But why? They have so much to offer.

EV's are fuel efficient. Obviously electric powered vehicles use electricity as their sole or main source of power so gas costs become a non issue. And there are some people who rightfully bring up the issue of the fuel costs and environmental impact of producing the electricty used to power the bike in the first place. Well to that I say, the fuel used to power a gasoline engine and the fuel used to produce the electrcity to power an ebike are so drasticly different that there is no real comparison. Also, electricity can be produced for free so in that respect the EV gets the prize.

As an advocate of EV's and someone who's done a little research on the topic I have to add that EV's can be pretty sexy. Yeah, I said it. You read that right. From a purely asthetic standpoint EV's can get really easy on the eyes. One of the problems is that they just haven't caught on and become commercially available enough to make them an everyday sight. I still do a double take whenever I see an electric car on the road and that's followed by the question," Where did they get it?"

They are not an entirely foreign sight, either. There are people who have the money and know-how to easily gain possession of an electric vehicle. There are government incentives to transition into electric powered transportation, there are people so determined to join the EV club that they save and sacrifice, and then there are companies like E-bikekit that offer their very own incintives.

Whatever the reason for not having an electric vehicle, I'm sure we can agree that there should be more electric vehicles on the road and e-bikes are an excellant choice of transportation for your local everyday commute.
