  • Very cool bike Tom. Can't wait for this technology to take off.

  • Thats where the propane bike comes into play. From my research, propane is a higher octane then pump gas (approx. 110 octane), thus delivering more power with a high compression motor. It also produces fewer emissions and does not build up carbon in the motor, resulting in fewer oil changes and longer engine life.

  • Ben, I never got to take it to a test track, but I did some testing on the mountain roads where I live. It is a fun bike to ride, but the technology is still not there to really compete with fossil fuel bikes.

  • Thank you Ben. It is always great to get positive feedback. I am currently in the early stages for a propane bike design that is a little narrower, more angular and aggressive. We will see how it turns out.

  • And from 0 to 100km/h what time?

  • Grigory I wish I could tell you but we have not timed any runs yet. The acceleration is much different then a traditional bike in that it is smooth on the start yet it continues to pull harder the faster you go. The best thing to compare it to is taking off in a jet. I was able to do some test runs in a parking lot where I got the bike up to around 80km/h before I ran out of pavement in what seemed like only a few seconds. When we get the actual numbers I will make sure to post them. Tom

  • I understand, anyway real electric bike is very very cool thing.
