TRANSPORTATION TUESDAY: The A2B Electric Bike

What do you get when you cross a bicycle  with an electric scooter ? Probably something like Ultra Motor ‘s “Light Electric Vehicle,” the A2B . Silent and stylish, the A2B is designed for urban and suburban commuters (check out that comfy, oversized seat). It’s like your bicycle, except with a lithium ion battery-powered motor that you can plug in and charge at any ordinary electric socket. And if you run out of power on the road, no worries — just start pedaling.
The bike can go for 20 miles at up to 20 mph, and you can double that range by buying an extra battery pack. It has a lightweight aluminum body (73 lbs.) with full suspension — check out the rest of the specs here . The bike is outfitted with two bags and two baskets for your stuff. This hybrid  offers a relaxing, emissions-free ride — and as the web site says, it “allows riders to get as much or as little exercise as they choose.”
