Electronically powered bicycles have been around for a long time. I remember 20 years ago when some company or another was selling a bike with an electric motor that drove the front tire via friction. Not very efficient and a heck of a drain on the battery. ebikes have come a long way and Golden Island Machinery is now offering a do it yourself conversion kit to add an electric motor to your existing bicycle.For only $168 you get a kit complete with battery, special reinforced wheel, and a motor that will go up to 36 km per hour. They have extended battery options, and a number of wheel options that can let you customize your package. The very definition of mobile tech personified.
