Velove adds weather protection and extra seat to its Armadillo electric cargo bike

In 2015, we got to know Swedish electric cargo bike outfit Velove and its large, muscular Armadillo quadricycle (quike?). A year later, Velove is adding a fabric body to the Armadillo, creating a more versatile, all-weather electric-assist cycle capable of muling passengers, packages, tools, furniture and other large cargo around city and country. As it did with the original Armadillo, it's testing a fleet of prototypes around its home city of Gothenburg, Sweden before moving ahead with production.

In the surprisingly wide world of electric bicycles, there's a lot of blurring of the lines between dirt and road bikes, psuedo-motorcycles and mopeds. Seattle-based Zeitgeist Inc. isn't doing anything to sharpen the lines with its Zeitgeist City e-bike. Despite the city moniker and being targeted primarily at affluent urbanites, the company says the luxury bike can handle on- and off-road conditions.Read More

Propella e-bikes look casual and power up via throttle or pedal assist

As we see each year at events like the North American Handmade Bicycle Show and Eurobike, bicycle designers will experiment with just about any style of frame. But they always seems to come back to the tried-and-true classic – the diamond frame. Perhaps, it's no wonder, then, that the e-bike industry is following suit. Propella is the latest startup to disguise its e-bike as a simple diamond-frame bicycle. Unlike a regular diamond-frame bicycle, this one has a versatile electric drive with both a throttle and a pedal assist system.
