The Low Down On Green Living
February 28th, 2008
Several hot green two-wheelers have come to our attention of late, and we want to share them with you. That’s how we roll.
This is a serious road machine. The Vectrix is the first 100% electric, zero emissions, highway-legal motorcycle. This puppy can move: zero to 50 MPH in 6.8 seconds. You don’t have to be green to want one of these! And they are coming out with a very cool three-wheel version soon. Check out the Vectrix.
If the Vectrix is a bit much for you, then take a look at the E-Cruiser. This is a plug-in scooter that will get you where you’re going. It’s zero-emissions, street legal and cute as a bug. A $1 charge will get you 450 miles! GreenEmotor offers 2 styles, 5 colors, and 2 motor sizes to choose from. They also offer a 1-year warranty. Check out the Cruisers from GreenEMotors.
Bamboo Bikes from CalfeeDesign
If you want to go sooooper energy-efficient, how about a bamboo bike? Yes, we’re serious. CalfeeDesign is making bikes from bamboo. The bike is made from Bamboo that has been smoked and heat treated to prevent splitting. Lugs are available in carbon fiber or hemp fiber, for the all-natural look. The chainstays are available in carbon fiber for extra stiffness in the drivetrain. They coat the bamboo in tung oil as a sealant. It comes in road, mountain, recumbent, tandem and other styles. Do you have bike envy yet? I do.
