<a href="" target="_blank"></a>

At the opening Wednesday of Interbike, the nation's largest bicycle trade show, Schwinn will debut the Tailwind, which uses new battery technology from Toshiba Corp. to get about 30 miles (depending the terrain and on how hard you peddle) on a 30-minute charge. That's a drastic reduction in charge time compared with what was previously available.

- 38 lbs
- 3000 charges on Toshiba SCIV battery
- 30 min charge time (7 min in "industrial settings")
- Nexus 8 speed hub
- 700c wheels
- 180 watts continuous or 250 watts peak
- 15 mph
- $3200 USD,0,1419744.story

Diamant at Eurobike 2008...

No doubt about it, the technology has come a long way from the 40kg behemoths that used to pass for electric bikes five years ago. To see how far technology has come I had a spin on the top-of-the-range (2,800 Euros) Diamant, a Trek sub-brand that's distributed in Germany and Austria.
