Bike review: Trayser and The Light Blue

Trayser appears like a cross between an Ikea lampshade and a Meccano, but this is the newest e-bike from ETT, the well known New Zealand firm.

This is really eye-catching, but all the design expands also hide a outstandingly forward-thinking bike. The wraparound shell made of plastic hides a 42V lithium ion battery that offers a range of sixty miles at up to 15.5 mile per hour. It takes three-hundred minutes to totally charge.

To ride, this is magnificently comfortable as well as the electric pedal boost is responsive and instant. But where Trayser really slips a march on the oppo is that it is the 1st bike for which one could 3D-print substitute parts. You need to visit shapeways.com, and the click and place an order. If you are feeling inventive you can even 3D print your very own accessories and make your own unique conception.

Here is another beauty - The Light Blue. It started life back in the year 1895 when John Townsend began making bikes for the Cambridge University students. He used to built around 6 a week in a changed over dairy in the city.

Lloyd, John’s great-grandson, now operates the company, and most of its array is all about retro and heritage. But not each these bikes carry that old-school theme. Have a look at the Darwin – this is the modern evolution of the long distance traveling bike. You can choose gears between a derailleur or reliable hub. It is fitted with disc brakes.
