Schwinn will be releasing a new series of electric bikes this summer, with the motors and batteries seamlessly integrated their overall design. The bikes will come with a lithium polymer battery that Schwinn says is the lightest and most durable on the market. One charge will last approximately 60 miles. The bikes also charge faster than most electric bikes — they become fully charged in less than 4 hours. You remove the batteries to charge them, so there are no wires on the bike itself. We will be interested to see if these bikes live up to their specifications.
The price for these bikes ranges from $1499 to $1999.
At MetaEfficient, we like electric bikes because they extend your travel range, thus make it more feasible to ride a bike across town, in place of a car.
