Wil and Sam testing the motor

Voila!  Today we are featuring the Sustainable Technology Institute’s first electric tandem bike which will be available to purchase coming soon.  While a tandem bike may look daunting compared to an everyday street bike, they are actually quite simple to operate and offer a unique experience.  Riding with two people allows for togetherness and can be great for children, friends, or couples.  This bike is perfect for getting around town and even has a basket which could hold groceries or other purchases while you travel.  Worried about hills?  Because the tandem bike is electric, the motor can help compensate for the weight of both people and acts like a boost during the ride.  Overall, a ride on this particular bike is definitely a team effort that both riders can enjoy.

Be on the lookout for more STI bike designs in the coming weeks!
