  • Get rid of your SUV! You can still transport two kids and 4 bags of groceries uphill. Check out this video of an electrified Xtracycle.

    Note: the video (from a news program) says the bicycle can go up to 30mph. In California, electric bicycles are restricted to a top speed on level ground of 20mph. Personally, I think this is plenty fast.

    Anybody know why all the garbage cans were knocked into the bike lanes on Market Street today?

  • mikesonn

    They were knocked down at 9ish on Weds night when I biked home. I was wondering the same thing. I chalked it up to being mid-Market.

    However, I thought someone would have corrected it by morning. Guess I should of called 311.

  • Peapod mom

    I was gonna say…30mph? That’s a little fast for comfort without motorcycle helmets or something! But anyway, yeah, don’t these toys look tempting. Last time we looked, though, it was an estimated $1k to add a reasonable motor to our Radish/Peapod setup. Ouch. Don’t count us out on that, though, especially with our 2nd kid on the way… πŸ™‚
