Styles of Betterbikes

Go To Step 2 and Choose A Conversion Kit-->

The first step in creating a Betterbike is to choose from the numerous recumbent styles and models. When looking for an e-bike, too many people concentrate on the motor, when the bike is far more important. After all it's the bike on which you sit. The bike's comfort, handling and riding characteristics determine whether or not your e-bike is a pleasure or a pain. Note that many models (like the EZ-1) come in different color and material offerings (SX steel, CX chromoly, AX aluminum).

Day 6 Bicycles (Half recumbent, half upright bike)
Official prices are on the website links for the models below.

Day 6 Bicycles offer safety and comfort similar to a recumbent but with the look and feel of a standard upright bike. The extended wheelbase and forward-positioned pedals allow riders to easily place their feet flat on the ground. Although it comes with a standard bicycle sadle, a medical grade seat with padded back and lumbar is also available. The swept-back handlebars combined with feet-forward position provide a surprisingly comfortable ride. Just add a power-assist kit designed for a regular bike to create a lovely ride. Due to the longer length of this bike, you may need to extend some wires on a standard kit. Learn more at http://www.day6bicycles.com, and then contact Kelly at kelly@day6bicycles.com or 712-644-3740 (office), 402-651-8867 (mobile).

    Electra Bicycle Company offers the "feet flat on the ground" Townie bikes. [Editor's Note: I prefer the Townie 7 women's style model for the chain guard, 7-speed Nexus Internal hub and coaster brake. Retails below $600.]
    The Schlick Shark achieves Townie-type comfort with an innovative, artistic frame featuring a series of arching aluminum tubes. Beautiful, but priced at over $2000. http://www.schlickcycles.com/

    Electric Velomobiles - Primarily designed as a commuter vehicle, the Aerorider's electric drive assist supports speeds up to 50 km/h but can be limited depending on national legislation. Because it has 3 wheels and full bodywork, the driver is not obliged to wear a helmet. Currently (2006) hand-manufactured in the Netherlands and priced (with delivery) under $10,000, it's available from Aerorider BV, http://www.aerorider.com/ With it's 600-watt motor and aerodynamic shape combine to offer a 28 mph top speed without pedaling; pedaling increases top speed, acceleration and range. Watch the 2-minute video showing the Aerorider in action. Good soundtrack, too. Aero Rider is now available in Southern California. Take a test drive today. Call 1-213-810-8842 for a reservation. http://www.velota.com
