Pedego Element launched as company’s lowest priced electric bike ever

Pedego’s most popular electric bicycle models usually fall in the $3,000+ range, but the company’s newest e-bike is priced at just half of those figures. Rolling into bike shops today, the Pedego Element is a shot across the bow of the major value-oriented e-bike companies.

Pedego Element e-bike launched

The Pedego Element is listed at just $1,495, which is pricing territory currently dominated by rival Rad Power Bikes.

But Pedego is hoping that its network of over 120 retail locations in the US will give it a leg up in this new market.

That advantage could be important, especially since the specs don’t necessarily place the Pedego Element above and beyond other offerings in the field.

As a Class 2 e-bike, the Pedego Element includes both a hand throttle and pedal assist, with both offering a top speed of 20 mph (32 km/h).

Sorry, the World’s Biggest Bike Maker Can’t Help You Buy a Bike Right Now

TAICHUNG, Taiwan — Because gyms are closed and we could all use a little more exercise; because we are avoiding buses and trains; because we are in need of outdoor group activities; or perhaps just because the pandemic has made us crave simple pleasures like the wind against our faces, bicycle sales are soaring around the world.

The result has been an international bike shortage. And the world’s largest bike maker, Giant, expects its supplies to remain tight for some time to come.

After President Trump started his trade war with China in 2018, Giant moved some of its manufacturing for the American market from China to the company’s home base in Taiwan to avoid the added tariffs. The next year, the European Union imposed antidumping duties on electric bikes from China, so Giant began making those in Taiwan, too.

But when the pandemic caused demand for bikes to jump,

The Great Bike Shortage: How The Pandemic Caused a Bicycle Boom and a Worldwide Shortage – Press Release

Coronavirus has affected everyone in the world, but it may come as a surprise of how it has impacted the cycling industry. Bike shops are currently seeing a boom in sales, as people are rushing to get on two wheels.

The biggest sellers are entry-level bikes that are mainly used for commuting and fitness. This is because the pandemic has changed the way people live, either temporarily or permanently.

Who Is Buying The Bikes?

The people that are buying these bikes are people that are now reluctant to use public transport, as they want to be distanced from the crowds.

Another reason cycling has gained in popularity is that group activities and sports are not as available or as appealing as they were. Therefore, people are turning to two wheels as a socially distanced way of exercising.

Unfortunately, other people have had to find cheaper ways to get around, due

SPRINGFIELD — A 31-year-old city man was seriously injured Tuesday night when he crashed an unregistered off-road motorcycle into a car at Oakland and Dickinson streets, police said.

“Does the job”

As simply a bike pack, assuming there was not phone display, I would rate this product 2 stars. The three attachment straps are all much too long for my road bike, so I had to customize them a little bit. Assuming you have some very amateur skill
